DSU Rome Application Due 2/15


Imagine waking up in Rome, walking the tree-lined streets of your Roman neighborhood where you grab an authentic cappuccino on your way to the Colosseum. In the afternoon, you climb the steps to the top of the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica, where you catch a spectacular view of the city and of the distant Colli Albani hills. Catching the Metro, you speed uptown to Piazza Bologna for your Italian class in a charming Roman palazzo. After class, you and your friends have dinner “al fresco” at your favorite local pizzeria and then take a leisurely walk along the River Tiber.

As a student at DeSales University, you have the unique opportunity to study abroad in Rome for the same cost as a semester at DeSales. Your financial aid will transfer over to the Rome program to cover housing and tuition for the program.

Apply online here.

Applications are due on February 15 for the DeSales University in Rome program for the fall 2018 semester. Here are this year’s highlights: [Read more…]

Important Spring Break Information

Hello Students,

Spring Break is almost upon us! All residence halls will shut down for the break on Friday, March 2 at 6 p.m., and will reopen at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 11.

Please be advised that there are VERY LIMITED services available for Traditional Undergraduate Day students during this time. As such, residents are required to vacate their residence halls.

The only exceptions that may be made are for students required to stay by faculty/staff members for University sanctioned events and/or full time/day undergraduate academic responsibilities or for students who live more than 300 miles from campus. If you reside more than 300 miles away, you may request to stay on campus at the Office of Campus Life.

Students who must stay on campus over the break for a University sanctioned event must coordinate their request to stay through their staff/faculty advisor. 

All requests must be submitted by 10 a.m. on Monday, February 26. Requests later than this date cannot be guaranteed approval.

If you have any questions about Spring Break closing, please talk with your Resident Advisor about the process.
