As the beginning of the second semester grows near, all the Rome Starts slowly started arriving back on campus. All of us are really excited to see what this new semester will bring because even though we already know most of the city and how things work at the JFRC, we are aware that it will be completely different.
The spring semester students arrived shortly after we did and it was great to see the Rome Starts and full years take the initiative and take the new students on a tour of our neighborhood, Balduina. We showed them important local landmarks such as the TIM store, Simply market, and the Chinese restaurant.
During orientation week the SLAs put together a number of very informative sessions. During these sessions, the new semester students were given all the information they would need to start getting used to living in Rome as well as getting to know the faculty and some of us.
