Bevenuti!  Or greetings in Italian which is what you will hear from Oaks Christian Online alumnae Summer Knapp (class of 2016) and Samantha D’Ambrosio (class of 2019) who have made St. John Cabot University in Rome their college choice.


St. John Cabot University is an American, liberal arts university in the heart of historic Rome.  The university is for English speakers who want an international college experience.  Its 1200 students hail from over 70 countries and uses the city of Rome not only as its backdrop but its classroom as well.  The university is well integrated in the city and the professors often use on site locations to conduct class.  St. John Cabot offers its students opportunities for internships within the city with public transportation in close walking distance to the university.


St. John Cabot offers small classes; the average class size is 15.  Students describe the professors as friendly, helpful, passionate and empathetic.  Popular majors are anything related to history, political science, economics and international business.  No classes are scheduled on Fridays, which gives students great opportunities to travel not only through Italy but also throughout Europe.

Student Life

St. John Cabot’s beautiful campus is located in the Trastevere neighborhood of Rome.  This area is known for its vibrant night life and amazing restaurants.  Students live in apartment style housing with anywhere from 3-9 students in the apartments {(depending on size)of the apartment, not the students}.  The apartments all have full kitchens so students either can cook or take advantage of the many restaurants nearby.  There are a few varsity sports (men’s and women’s basketball, soccer and volleyball) and intramural sports are available as well.
