JCU's First Voyage Program Goes to a Pumpkin Patch

This year’s never-ending Summer has finally come to an end, and Fall is upon us. The leaves have begun to change color, the air is crisper, the days are shorter, and it’s Halloween. In fact, it’s the perfect time for pumpkin picking!

On Saturday, a group of students from JCU embarked on a trip to Ronciglione (VT) to choose their pumpkins just in time for Halloween. The trip, organized by the First Voyage Program, and led by Registrar Scarpati together with three First Voyage Captains, stopped at a local Farmers Market to purchase pumpkins of all sizes before heading to the nearby town of Sutri for a typical Italian Autumn lunch.

John Cabot University’s First Voyage is an integrated mix of programs from across the University that assists students in making the transition to their new life at JCU and in Rome, providing support as they embark on this journey towards becoming more knowledgeable and responsible global citizens. The program builds on the foundation of our liberal arts experience, emphasizing our multi-cultural and international academic learning environment.
