THE JOHN FELICE ROME CENTER: AT A GLANCE
• Loyola’s John Felice Rome Center, one of the oldest study abroad programs in Italy, welcomed its first class of 92 students and eight faculty members in February 1962 .
“I DO nOT knOw OnE pERSOn wHO DID nOT GROw AS A pERSOn AnD LEARn mORE AbOuT THEmSELvES. IT IS TRuLy A OnCE In A LIFETImE ExpERIEnCE!” mOLLy nARTOnIS ST. LOuIS unIvERSITy

• Today, the Rome Center enrolls more than 200 students each semester from nearly 40 different U .S . universities . • The Rome Center’s multi-level, residential campus spans five acres in the upper Balduina district on Monte Mario, Rome’s highest hill . The affluent neighborhood is home to diplomats, senators, judges and other distinguished families . • In December 2004, Loyola President Michael J . Garanzini, S .J ., renamed the facility to recognize and honor its dynamic Founder and Director Emeritus, John Felice . For more than 45 years, Professor Felice’s leadership and influence helped to create one of the most renowned American international education centers in Western Europe . • Students may choose from more than 40 courses . Instruction is in English, except for Italian courses . • Students may attend for a full academic year, one semester or in the summer . We recommend a full year of study to experience the maximum benefits of the program . • More than 14,000 students have studied at the Rome Center since its inception, and many alumni meet at the annual reunion . • The Rome Center welcomes applications from qualified students enrolled in any accredited baccalaureate-granting college or university in the United States . Participating students from schools other than Loyola University Chicago are admitted to the John Felice Rome Center as “visiting” students . (Learn more on page 19 .)

CAMPUS LIFE
LIVINg AND LeArNINg fAcILITIeS
Students live in residence halls on an American-style campus at Loyola’s John Felice Rome Center, where lifetime friendships are formed in a tight-knit community . Living on an actual campus provides students with the support of a home-away-from-home while they experience the adventures and excitement of a foreign culture . More than 200 highly motivated students from Loyola and other U .S . universities live in a comfortable environment that offers: • Well-equipped classrooms • Residence halls • Cafeteria with daily lunch and dinner services during the semesters • All-day coffee and snack bar • Bookstore • Self-service laundry facilities • Workout/dance studio • Outdoor basketball court • Infirmary • Chapel • 24-hour access to computer labs and wireless connections • Library • 24-hour doorperson

LocATIoN
Students will find grocery stores, cafes, restaurants, banks, bakeries, a post office, a salon and other small businesses in the upper Balduina district on Rome’s highest hill, Monte Mario, just a few minutes walk from the Rome Center . Students can shop and eat where local Italians do, learn about Italian culture by actually speaking with Italians, and practice Italian with a language partner . Rome Center students can easily get to the heart of Rome: By bus, the campus is 20 minutes from the Vatican and 35 minutes from downtown . The bus stop is only two blocks from the Rome Center .
