STAFF REPORT: A message to all John Felice Rome Center alumni and current JFRC summer session students
Ciao from Rome!
This year, we’re adding a new theme to our coverage: race, ethnicity, and culture. A study abroad experience certainly falls within the parameters of this theme.
We would like to give current, future, and past students at the John Felice Rome Center an opportunity to reflect on their experiences in Rome because we believe studying abroad is an experience that is unique to everyone.
We invite you to share your experience in any way: articles, photo stories, illustrations, poems, creative writing pieces, etc.
Perhaps your experience is also relatable to one of our other six themes. Perhaps you noticed certain fashion trends between Rome and America…maybe you’re Jewish and you took a trip to the Vatican…maybe being abroad has taught you to be more environmentally conscious…or maybe your experience in Rome has given you a new worldview of politics that you’d like to talk about.
AWESOME! MORE OF A REASON FOR YOU TO SHARE YOUR STORY! :]
We’d also like to expand our Loyola community base to the Rome Center campus.
We are planning to distribute copies of the Chameleon at the Rome Center Campus in the fall.
Because of this, we are doing a feature story about our mascot, Charlie, and his preparation for a “trip” to Rome in the fall.
For this story, we’re looking for alumni or current summer session students to contribute any “tips” or “words of wisdom” for Charlie (or future students) when they plan to go abroad.
What tips can you offer Charlie? What should he know before he goes abroad?
We’re not looking for all seriousness, either. Maybe there are some funny wisdom tidbits you’d like to tell Charlie about.
So what are you waiting for? Why not share your John Felice Rome Center experience with the world?
For more information, and if you are interested in contributing, please contact email@example.com.
No writing experience is necessary. All JFRC alumni and current summer session I and II students are welcome to contribute and share their JFRC story, no matter what school they come from.
These experiences will be published in the September 2012 print edition of the Chameleon and on our website.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Love, the 2012-2013 LUChameleon staff
