Virgilio told the world with his Eneide how powerful Rome was (between 29 and 19 BC) and Dante Alighieri chose the poet to guide him through his journey to the Paradise in his Divina Commedia. We chose his name for the project that aims to guide you during your journey at Tor Vergata University.
It is a new Tor Vergata project, that arose from a proposal made by a group of talented students of the School of Economics, aiming to support newly enrolled students arriving each September.
It was imagined before the Corona Virus locked us all down, it was before the Winter of 2020 that changed our life. As Tor Vergata suddenly moved its lectures, graduate sessions, exams and administrative work online in March, we realised that we had to think about a new Virgilio. So indeed, we moved Virgilio online as well!
You as an incoming student will find different “Rooms” you can attend, to have a chat with our senior students on some specific topics (pre-enrollment procedures for non EU students; admissions; online classes; etc.) or free chats about your worries, your issues, your curiosities.
In each Room you will find two international students and one officer from Tor Vergata University staff, for one hour and a half at your disposal. We will meet on TEAMS – that is the tool we are all using at Tor Vergata University for lectures, exams and meetings – so that you can start to be confident with the platform. If you haven’t already done so, please download it before the meeting and see the online tutorial here.
Please book your attendance in one of the slot here below and join us!
Click on the calendar to see the time for each meeting; please be aware that each meeting will last 90 minutes. The first 45 minutes will be useful for giving general information and doing a Q&A session, while the second 45 minutes will cover the specific topic you see on the "title". We will accept only 10 students for each meeting, so hurry up with the registration!
Each meeting will start at 4 PM (Italian time).
Please be aware that only students admitted to one of the programmes of the School of Economics and to the Bachelor in Engineering Sciences are allowed to book for a Virgilio Meeting.
