“Can we go up for seconds?” A nervous sophomore asked her friend as she sat in the Testa atrium, holding her now-empty gelato cup.
The College hosted its third annual gelato tasting, sponsored by the Assumption Rome Campus, on Tuesday, September 22 at 7 p.m. They had three different flavors of gelato, including vanilla, strawberry and lemon. Quite a few students actually slipped out of the event right after grabbing their gelato before the introduction at 7:30 p.m.
The Rome Campus Coordinator and Professor of Italian Richard Bonanno introduced the event. Several students who attended the Rome campus last semester spoke.
One particular student who spoke to the crowd was junior Zach Symkowitz.
“My biggest worry was the financial cost of the trip, but luckily, all of my financial aid carried over and I was able to attend for the same price as a semester at Assumption. Rome and especially Florence truly become your classroom,” remarked Symkowitz.
