Student of the Week Sarah Reilly

Where are you from?     

I’m from Springfield, Delaware County which is right outside of Philadelphia.

What school do you go to?     

Temple University

What made you choose to study abroad at Temple Rome?     

Living in Europe had always been a dream of mine and I had a lot of support from my family to study abroad. Temple Rome was the perfect option to get myself out of my comfort zone. Since then I’ve fallen in love with Rome and Italian culture!

What has been your favorite school related experience?     

My favorite school related experience was the trip to Umbria in the beginning of the year. Todi was a beautiful little town which i probably would have never thought to visit. The four course meal in the castle was so good, I’m still dreaming about it!

What has been your favorite overall experience so far?     

Oktoberfest definitely! Germany is beautiful and it was so amazing meeting people from all over the globe. Plus the festival itself was so much fun!

What do you hope to accomplish before leaving?     

I really want to go see Pope Francis! I saw him when he came to Philadelphia but I thought I might pay him another visit before I leave.
