Orientation

Orientation

Orientation week is designed to help you smoothly transition to life at John Cabot University and the city of Rome.

The mission of the Orientation Program (OP) is to provide new incoming students and their families with an introduction to John Cabot University in order to allow a successful transition into the JCU community as well as to life in Rome. To do this, Orientation offers a combination of both educational and interactive sessions.
