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).
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.
What’s a day in Rome without gelato?
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!
Melissa is a current student at St. Norbert College studying at John Cabot University in Italy, during the Spring 2016 term.
