At the beginning of each session, Temple Rome hosts a multi-day Orientation for all students which includes essential health and safety information, social events and several activities to introduce students to the Italian language, food and culture, as well as their new “home” in Rome. Every Orientation culminates in a day-long excursion to the Umbrian countryside, with visits to the medieval hill town of Todi and a sumptuous lunch at Titignano castle.

Throughout each semester or summer, Temple Rome students continue to engage actively with members of the local community through several events including: 

  • Cooking classes
  • Yoga nights
  • Calcetto (soccer) nights
  • Volleyball
  • Basketball
  • Gallery openings
  • Topics on safety, relationships, self-care, etc. 
  • Lectures with experts in various fields
  • and more!
