In an exciting new extension of its activities, LdM opened its newest study abroad campus in the heart of Italy's capital in Spring 2007. Rome is a city with an unparalleled history and a cultural diversity spanning over two millennia. The new LdM site represents a conscious decision to participate in the life, politics, and educational traditions that made Italy the seat of the western world. Rome is an extraordinary synthesis of cultures from the Mediterranean region, North Africa, Europe, and an increasingly global community. The city seamlessly fuses the macrocosm of a large metropolis with the microcosm typical of small lively neighborhoods and picturesque districts, in a way that is fresh and spontaneous. It is home to world recognized monuments and locations that have been celebrated throughout the world. Rome itself forms a unique backdrop for many artistic and cultural events such as music, cinema, concerts, and sporting fixtures. The hills, piazzas, fountains, cobbled streets, and churches are a testimony to a great heritage but at the same time provide a contemporary setting for the active social and cultural life of the thriving modern city.
Spending any amount of time in the Eternal City is an experience that has kept visitors and pilgrims captivated for centuries. Whether the inspiration comes from a quiet spot in Rome's parks, from powerfully evocative ruins, from Renaissance or Baroque palaces, or from the awe-inspiring art of Vatican City, Rome continues to stimulate the senses. The unique history of Italy's capital city allows for the study abroad student to investigate ancient cultures as well as contemporary political and international issues all within the same location.
"At LdM I was able to grow as a student, and I gained confidence in my work."
