Joe Calvo and Mike Luciano, attended John Cabot University in the Spring of 2007 as part of a study abroad program offered through the University of New Hampshire. The story below reflects their experience and was written as a special honor to their friend and fellow study abroad alumna, Alissa Constantinople after her recent marriage. Currently, Joe is working in the finance industry at Raytheon, and Mike works in product planning at The TJX Companies.

“It was the spring of 2007. There were six of us, with roots all across the United States – from cities spanning thousands of miles wide: Hales Corners WI, Palm Beach FL, Berlin CT, Boston MA, Washington Township NJ. John Cabot students come from all over the world sharing myriad background stories and experiences. Our common thread is JCU and Rome, Italy.
