One of the best parts of being at the JFRC is taking on-site classes. This semester I am taking Art in Rome and even though it is a demanding class, it is most certainly worth it.
Every week instead of going into a classroom for a lecture, we make our way to Rome and explore a new church or museum with our Professor.
This is a very unique opportunity because you get to learn about the most famous pieces of art and architecture while being in their presence. Being able to admire masterpieces up-close truly makes the class all the more interesting and engaging.
In addition to it having a phenomenal learning experience, it is also a great way of learning how to get around in Rome. Buses are not always very reliable and having to plan around that is very good life experience as well.
