ORIENTATION: Day long trip to Italian seaside

Summer Session II Orientation 2012 - Two day-long trips to Herculaneum & Naples, and a trip to Orvieto

Herculaneum & Naples Day Trip
Visit Herculaneum, a beautifully preserved ancient Roman town, found in the shadow of Mt. Vesuvius. Herculaneum was destroyed by volcanic lava along with Pompeii in 79 AD. Herculaneum was a smaller town with a wealthier population. Students will have lunch in nearby Naples while having a chance to explore the bay area.

Orvieto Day Trip
On this trip, students will have a day to taste and see what Orvieto has to offer its visitors. Orvieto, a city that dates to the time of the Etruscans, is nestled in the hills of Umbria and is home to - among other things - a stunning 14th century cathedral. TheDuomo, as it is called, is most noted for its frescoed Signorelli Chapel. Orvieto is also known for its vini bianchi (white wines) and is part of the slow food movement. If you're a "foodie," if you're interested in seeing beautiful hillside scenery, or if you just want to enjoy a beautiful day in a beautiful town, this trip is for you!

Study Trips (Optional, with additional cost)

Minturno Weekend Trip
Minturno is a small seaside town in Southern Italy, situated on the border between the Campania and Lazio regions of Italy. Originally founded as Minturnaeand inhabited by Romans, Minturno became an important port city and was situated toward the southernmost limits of the Via Appia. This trip will include a visit to a Roman site, the medieval Minturno, a local agriturismo for a taste of the local mozzarella di bufala and vino, and some time on the beach.
The approximate price of this trip is €285. Students must sign up and pay in the JFRC Business Office.
Spots are limited to 25 participants, open on a first-come, first-served basis.

Things to Consider

Please be aware that, when you are making your flight reservations, participants in the JFRC summer program are expected to arrive at the JFRC on Saturday morning: May 19th for Summer Session I or June 30th for Summer Session II [an exception is made for students enrolled in an inter-session course].  Students are required to depart on Friday, June 22nd, if only doing Session I; otherwise, all students must leave by July 27th.

There are no school-sponsored student group flights during the summer; all students must book their own round-trip tickets and get themselves to the JFRC campus.  Students will reside in double rooms on campus while enrolled in the program. Administrative and student life support will be provided by JFRC staff.

Students enrolling for both JFRC Summer Sessions will be allowed to remain on campus over the interval between sessions if they are not enrolling in either of the inter-session courses.

Students must select two courses [six (6) semester hours] from the scheduled offerings in each session  for which they plan to enroll. Courses may be subject to cancellation if enrollment is low. 


**Please note: students are required to have completed the Loyola Rome Center application process prior to submitting the Xavier application.  Please see for additional information.

Monday, March 19, 2012 for Summer Session I; if space is still available after March 19th, the deadline will be extended.

Friday, June 1, 2012 for Summer Session II; if space remains available after June 1st, the deadline will be extended.

All applications ideally should be submitted no later than Monday, March 19th for Summer I, and no later than Friday, June 1st for Summer II. Students waiting to apply should be aware that registration for 2012 summer classes is under way, so some classes in each session may have already closed at their maximum enrollment before a deadline.
