Field Studies with IES Rome

This is the inside of the Chiesa del Gesu, which I visited on my first field study with my Baroque Rome art history class. This is a nun, also inside the Chiesa del Gesu. This is our professor explaining the sculptures of a papal tomb in the Chiesa del Gesu. My first field study was to the Castel Sant'Angelo, right across the street from the IES Center, with my Roman Architecture and Urban Design class. This is on the roof of Castel Sant'Angelo at the end of our field study. Our architecture professor showed us this original "graffiti" on building just a few minutes walking from the IES Center on a field study. This is the Tempietto, a work by Bramante that earned him the commission to design St. Peter's Basilica. We visited this on a field study with my architecture class.

These are pictures from some of my field studies with my classes in Rome. They are from field studies with my Baroque Rome art history class and my Roman Architecture and Urban Design.

At Harvard she volunteers with CityStep, a community dance program for middle school students in Cambridge, plays club field hockey and lacrosse, and is a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta Greek-letter fraternity for women. When she&#39;s not at school, she&#39;s traveling as much as possible--Heather has been traveling outside the States every year since 2007. However, this Cleveland native is a homebody at heart and can&#39;t get enough quality time with her cats and a good, trashy romance novel.</span></p>
