A Day in the Life of SAI Rome
Melissa, Rome, Spring 2016

We handed over our Instagram to a few students this month and asked them to take us through their day in their host city. This is Melissa’s day in Rome (March 23, 2016).

Melissa S - Spring 16 - Rome

Ciao! My name is Melissa Stel. I am a junior at St. Norbert College in Wisconsin, studying History and Political Science. I will be taking over the SAI account for the day to give you a snapshot of my daily life while studying abroad at JCU in Rome!

Here’s the arch leading to the Guarini Campus of JCU, which is where I have most of my classes. It’s my favorite part of the walk to class and right next to Caffe Settimiano, where many students go for a quick espresso!

My Italian class got cancelled, so I went out for lunch with a few of my classmates. I got my favorite pizza, boscaiola, which has mushrooms and sausages on it.

I love passing the Basilica di Santa Maria on my way home from school. It’s such a beautiful church!

Here’s a gorgeous view of Rome from the steps near my apartment. I hope you enjoyed following my day as much as I love studying in Rome!
