Student Activities

Our student activities are open to former, current, and future pre-college students to meet other students, learn more about Temple, and have fun.

  • Live from Temple Rome: Testaccio Virtual Walking Tour – Saturday, April 17, 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. (Rain Date: May 8)
    Starting at the foot of the massive 18 B.C.E. sarcophagus the Pyramid of Cestius, we cross the threshold of the 271 B.C.E. Aurelian Wall, drop in at the 300-year old Non-Catholic Cemetery (burial place of Keats and Shelley) and tour an ‘enlightened’ worker housing district of the early 20th century. We will take in the Testaccio covered market (a Rome foodie destination in itself), the former stockyards and slaughterhouses - now converted to fair-trade shops and exhibition halls - and sail over Monte Testaccio, a massive landform composed entirely of pottery shards from the ancient Tiber shipping port, known as the Emporio. Viewed by many as the Heart of Rome, for its authentic working class pride, its great pastry shops, pizzerias and small-town intimacy, Testaccio is an un-missable visitor favorite. Register here. Hosted by Temple University Rome Campus.
     
  • Live from Temple Rome: Pop Culture in Italy – Saturday, May 1, 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
    The workshop explores popular culture in Italy, with a particular focus on Italian underground movements, particularly rap music and street art. This exploration is pursued mostly within the context of the city Rome, looking especially at the underprivileged peripheral areas in which many underground art forms emerged. Register hereHosted by Temple University Rome Campus.
