Rome 50 pizza

Sei vecchio! Wait, you don’t speak Italian? Right. Well this year is Temple University Rome’s 50th anniversary and that means “happy anniversary!” (Actually, it means “you’re old,” but you get the point.) To celebrate, consider studying in the city that wasn’t built in a day! Lucky for you, it’s Study Abroad Week and getting info about going abroad is as easy as ricotta pie. Do you have to know Italian? No. Should you like pizza? Duh. Want to know if you and Rome are soulmates?

For Video Produced on South Africa Study Abroad Program

When Tyler Horst (SMC ’15) embarked on a study abroad program in South Africa in the summer of 2014, he could only imagine the impact his experience would have on his personal and professional development.

Education Abroad Sends Advisors to Tokyo and Rome

by Zachary Martin

During freshman orientation, we introduce ourselves by giving a fun fact, an icebreaker, like how Ruth, the director of Honors, had a cake delivery service via motorcycle in college. Such amusing trivia allows students to connect with us. This year, my fun fact was that I recently got back from TUJ, Temple’s campus in Tokyo, Japan. Students haven’t stopped asking me about my experience. It worked.
