Katherine Chalmers ’24 – IES Rome, Italy

Howdy! My name is Katherine Chalmers, and I am a senior at Hope College studying Christian History and Theology. I moved quite a bit growing up, but I would say home is St. Louis, Missouri. For the Fall 2023 semester, I will be in Rome, Italy. I am excited to embark on a journey to a new location where I will have the chance to make memories, encounter an unfamiliar culture, and learn through experience. My parents went to Rome when my mom was a senior in college, so I am over the moon ecstatic to gaze upon the places I have heard stories about. Here’s to hope in the wonder and awe to come! A presto Roma!
