Overall Experience
I learned a lot about my field and the people in it and what higher-level research looks like. I do think it was overall a worthwhile experience. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

I learned that I'm tired - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned so much about Roman history and archeology that I absolutely would not have otherwise. I've already begun to apply this knowledge to my further studies. I also enjoyed establishing a community of classicists that should last beyond the program. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review When In Rome
I gained a greater depth of knowledge of Roman history and the Classical world in addition to an appreciation of modern Italian culture. This program provided me the opportunity to visit sites I never would have been able to otherwise. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned so much about Roman archaeology and civilization. This program gave me a wonderful foundation to learn about Classics in general. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I think the most important things I gained from studying abroad were that I got to see the places I had learned about and I now feel confident going abroad, even by myself. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was definitely a worthwhile experience. I learned a lot about Classics and my personal interests in the field, and I made some great friends. I would love to live in Rome again and actually experience the modern city though. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was absolutely worthwhile. I learned an immearsuable amount about ancient history and topography and increased my knowledge in Greek and Latin. I also learned how to navigate Rome. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I certainly learned a lot about Classics and the world of Classical academia, and if the experience taught me anything, it's that I'm not sure I want to pursue the field any further. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Although my experience wasn't exactly what I expected, it was a highly valuable experience nonetheless. I learned a lot about myself, and it really challenged me to think through my future plans and my plans to go to grad school. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Past Review
IT WAS AMAZING! - Rice University View Entire Review
Rome! I love Rome! It was worth it for a chance to live there, but academically, not what I was expecting at all, especially wrt to the rigor of the language classes. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I definitely became a different (and better) person. I've never felt like I belonged somewhere as much as I did there, in that city, with those people. I came to love Classics even more from being on site and seeing it all in person and connecting with it more than you ever could in a lecture hall. I became a happier, freer, and... - Washington University in Saint Louis View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Duke University: Rome - Duke in Rome (ICCS)
I learned that I do indeed like classical studies! Be warned: this is not for the student who wants to see modern Italy and who only has a passing interest in classics. This is like classics boot camp. Some days you will be out for 8-10 hours, climbing over rocks and taking notes in the pouring rain. That said, I'd do it again i... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned so much about the professional practices and applications of my chosen majors, and how other people of other countries live their lives. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
This was an amazing experience and absolutely worth it! - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I now have a very deep knowledge of the ancient history in and around Rome as well as making friends that will last me a lifetime. The entire group became very close both with each other and with the city in a way that would not be possible in any other program. I am so glad I went and was very sad to leave, but I know that th... - Barnard College View Entire Review
Past Review Not For Everyone
i learned a lot about my personal ability to get through things and also realized that classics was not a viable career option for me - Middlebury College View Entire Review
That i never want to pursue a career in Classics. It was worthwhile only because it brought me to Rome - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Definitely! I learned a ton, and fell in love with Italy. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
This program affirmed my plans to go to graduate school in classics, and covered critical holes in my understanding of history and language. - Carleton College View Entire Review

About

The Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies in Rome (ICCS) was established in 1965 by representatives of ten American colleges and universities; the number of member institutions has now grown to over 100. It provides undergraduate students with an opportunity in Rome to study ancient history, archaeology, Greek and Latin literature, Italian language, and ancient art. ICCS has received generous aid from the Danforth Foundation, The Old Dominion Foundation, The Mellon Foundation, and the David and Lucille Packard Foundation, as well as the continuing support of a consortium of colleges and universities, and contributions from former students.

A Managing Committee elected by the consortium colleges and universities determines the curriculum and selects the faculty, students, and scholarship recipients. The Managing Committee has arranged for administration of the Intercollegiate Center to be handled by Duke University's Global Education Office for Undergraduates.
