Advisors and Education Abroad staff from Temple University’s Main and Ambler campuses visited Temple Rome last week during their Spring Break to see what Temple University Rome has to offer students who are looking for a study abroad experience. The academic advisors stayed an entire week visiting classes, internship sites, attending campus events, meeting the TUR faculty and staff and even made time to sit down with students and discuss how their semesters have been so far here at Temple Rome.
Advisors from most of the schools and colleges were present in order to learn more about the Temple University Rome campus, the classes offered here, internship offerings, and the overall student experience abroad. With so many class excursions throughout Rome, the advisors were able to explore the city while also participating in observations of classes.
There was an informal advisor and student meet and greet where students had the chance to sit with an advisor from their school or college and chat about how their semester has been so far. Students took this opportunity to ask any questions they may have had regarding their classes, academic requirements, and future semesters.
Professor Andrew Kranis who had advisors visit his Neighborhoods of Modern Rome course during an excursion to the EUR neighborhood of Rome stated that he “found the three administrators very open and curious about the subject matter” and he “hopes that the exposure to what TUR offers in unique onsite learning experiences will lead them to encourage more students from all disciplines to apply to come to Rome.”
