    Cortona Fall 2013

      Having just finished my second week at ADA I feel quite overwhelmed with emotions. I’m excited, still a little nervous, overwhelmed, incredibly grateful for this opportunity, and enthused and invigorated by all of the time ahead. By the end of the semester I would like to at least be competent in Italian, gain...

      Two students from the Fall 2012 music program share their experiences:   This entire semester has, of course, been a learning experience for us all, but it wasn’t until after fall break that I really discovered myself and who I want to be.

    Gabrielle, Grace, Sophie, Allie and Morgan at the Ponte Vecchio in Firenze.

    Though there have been a lot of fantastic things about studying abroad, one of the things I think I will miss the most about this experience is the incredible and supportive community that exists here at the ADA. From the very first open mike night back in September, it was so cool to see...

    Mai Ai Training

      The notion of straining the entirety of my academic experience at the Accademia down to a mere blog post is not one that I’d care to entertain.

    Joust Fun

    Some of my absolute favorite things that happen at the Accademia are the open mics/cabarets. They are awesome events where the any of the students/professors can gather together and perform acts of their design which are then all strung into one big plot.
