Semester in Rome Campus Visitation Policy
Students participating in the Semester in Rome have a tight schedule because their time in Italy is limited. Therefore, Geneva College welcomes visits from parents and friends during the regular semester within these guidelines:
Students may have visitors on campus as follows:
The Site Director reserves the right to alter visit days and times as needed to accommodate special events or community meetings and dinners, but will provide sufficient advance notice (at least 24 hours).
The quality of hotels is usually high in Italy, even at the two-star level. Most reasonably priced hotels have tile floors, small bathrooms, and basic furnishings. Look for photos and reviews online. We suggest that you check out www.Tripadvisor.com to read reviews of any hotels you are considering to see if they suit your needs and standards. All of the following hotels are located within a short walk of campus.
Hostels come in a variety of styles and a range of quality. These websites provide a wealth of information: http://www.hostels.com/ http://www.hostelworld.com/ http://www.backpackers.com/ Remember that many times you can stay in a hotel and split the cost between three or four people and do just as well—or better—than you would if you were to book a bed at a hostel.
Geneva engineering students compete in national competitions including the Solar Splash, Steel Bridge Building and the Society of Automotive Engineers Baja Competition.
