Workout & dance studio
The Palestra - a combination of workout and dance studio - ensures students stay physically fit while studying at the John Felice Rome Center. Some aerobic classes are also organized throughout the semester. A fitness instructor comes to campus regularly and helps students at the JFRC stay healthy. Students interested in Egyptian Folk dancing also have a chance to learn in the Palestra.
In Italy, calcio (soccer) is the most popular of all sports. JFRC students have organized their own soccer matches at an off-campus location in the neighborhood with the help of the Office of the Associate Dean of Students. Joining a calcio team is a great way for students to socialize and stay healthy.
