If you listen to anything I say, please, please, PLEASE visit Venice, especially if you’re studying abroad in Rome like I am. It’s only a few hours away by train.

Why Rome Was My Top Choice for Studying Abroad

At college you’re so busy juggling 5-7 classes, a part-time job and an internship... and that’s just about “normal” for LIM students. Not to mention trying to manage a social life somewhere in between. My decision to study abroad was to get a change of scenery and travel the world. Living in New York is so demanding and speedy—trust me, the New York minute is a real thing!

Janelle the Berber Woman

Traveling to Marrakech, Morocco during my time abroad was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The trip opened my eyes to a completely different culture, religion, and way of life. Marrakech is like no other place I’ve ever been before. It was the very first time I ever experienced culture shock, but I made lifelong friends, and I scored some awesome souvenirs in the souk.

Janelle the Student Athlete

            While studying abroad in Rome I have observed that there are three things that all Italians are extremely passionate about: food, family, and soccer. Like the Italians, I am passionate about family, even more passionate about food, but not so keen on the latter. So when soccer sign ups were announced, I gave it as much thought as I do to getting gelato on the way home. Of course, I'm getting gelato on the way home. And, no, I'm not joining the soccer team.

Janelle the Roman

When I entered college, studying abroad was a very foreign and uncomfortable thought. I have always been a homebody and cherish time spent with my family and greatly enjoy being in my comfort zone. Studying abroad was an idea that was not completely out of the question, but highly unlikely for me.

Our Room in Rome

Posted by LIM College on Tue, May 01, 2012 @ 11:00 AM

This is my room that I share with Emani. Whenever we’re not out and about on the streets of Rome, you can always find us in here. It is a very spacious and cozy room. We do our homework, watch movies and have long conversations about everything.


Unfortunately, this was one of the times that we were doing homework, hence the papers on the bed.

A Day at the Beach in Barcelona

Posted by LIM College on Mon, Apr 30, 2012 @ 11:24 AM

This photo is from the weekend that Emani and I met up with NyAsia and Evelyn in Barcelona. The trip was awesome and Barcelona was beautiful. We wanted to go to the beach because our hostel was just a few minutes away, but the weather wasn’t as warm as we hoped it would be.


Although we weren’t able to get in the water, we took a stroll on the beach and had a photo shoot! It’s unfortunate that we didn’t get to experience the water, but the sight of it was an experience of its own.

Studying in the Garden

Posted by LIM College on Tue, Apr 17, 2012 @ 12:41 PM

As soon as you walk through the gated doors of our school, you enter the garden. This is where students come to have their lunch, talk amongst one another, and tan when the weather allows them to! On this day, I decided to take advantage of the great day outside after a stormy weekend and do some Italian homework.

Visiting Corfu Over Easter Weekend

Posted by LIM College on Thu, Apr 12, 2012 @ 04:15 PM

My friend and I went to Corfu, Greece for Easter weekend. This was one of the many views that we were fortunate enough to see and visible from our room balcony. Corfu was full of beautiful views just like this one and it was one of the most marvelous places that I have ever been to. I cannot wait to get back to this island!

Wine Under the Eiffel Tower

Posted by LIM College on Tue, Apr 03, 2012 @ 11:47 AM

Emani and I decided to go to London and Paris for spring break. While in Paris, we stayed with NyAsia who is also from LIM College studying abroad in Paris for the semester. This was our last night in Paris so we wanted to do something memorable! We had wine under the Eiffel Tower after dinner and we talked for a couple of hours before getting some dessert.
