At almost 3,000 years old, Rome is often referred to as “The Eternal City.” For Laura Terry, the magnitude of history within the city is why it is so important for students at the University of Arkansas to experience one of the world’s epicenters of architecture. With deep traditions preserved alongside the evolution of an urban area, it is a twist on a modern city entwined with some of the world’s oldest history.
Through the University of Arkansas Rome Center, the Fay Jones School of Architecture and the university have had a presence in Rome since 1986. Architecture students are required to study abroad as part of their five-year professional degree plan.
