A student at Temple Rome the Spring of 1989, Deborah Hyman claims that her time at Temple Rome was, “one of the best experiences I had as a young adult. As an architecture major, the educational opportunity was unparalleled. The TUR staff and professors were highly knowledgeable and generous. In addition to the regular course of study, they took the time to introduce us to Roman culture.” Deborah recently visited Temple Rome with her husband and 13 year-old daughter, and hopes that someday her daughter will have the opportunity to study abroad as she did. Unlike traveling while on vacation, she claims, “ living in Rome and studying at TUR allowed me time to understand a foreign culture and way of life. It expanded my worldview, and taught me that there are many wonderful ways to approach and live life.” Deborah is a Licensed Architect, specialized in mass transit. Currently she is a Program Manager in the Department of Capital Program Management for MTA New York City Transit. She is also a volunteer member of the Board of Directors of WTS, a non-profit organization that advances women in the transportation industry, as well as the co-founder of a mentoring program to work with high school girls in NYC to pursue STEM careers.
