The Res Grads will be on hand to help right from the start of students’ time at AUR, as during Arrivals Week they go to meet incoming students at the airport to welcome them to Rome. Also during Arrivals week, the Res Grads lead neighborhood tours for new students, as well as their popular “Rome Walk”, a tour showing students how to navigate the city. These events not only help students settle into the city, they also give students the opportunity to meet and get to know each other in a relaxed and informal setting. Throughout the rest of the semester, the Res Grads host events such as beach trips, cooking lessons, movie nights, language exchanges, day trips, aperitivo night… the list goes on! All these events are advertised on MyAUR, the Res Grads Facebook page, and on the electronic bulletin boards on campus.
Previous Res Grads have said about their experience:
“I currently am directing a study abroad program with over 100 students! I think my growth and professional development was greatly influenced by my experiences as a ResGrad.”
“The ResGrad program strongly reinforced my sense of professional responsibility in and outside of my work schedule.”
“The RA position couldn’t have come to me at a more appropriate time in my life. With my experience working with students, it further created a stronger CV when applying for jobs in the study abroad field. I greatly appreciate the amount of faith and trust given to me from my mentors.”
