    Fall 13 Cortona

      I knew coming into this program that the class structure and instructors would be different. However I was not sure exactly how they would be different. The classes are by no means easier, but I come into the classroom with a sense of relaxation. Although I know that my classmates and I are...

    Musicians Fall 2013

    The most surprising feature of living in Italy is unquestionably the wonderful food. The meals at the mensa are consistently delicious and a great deal of hard work and love goes into its preparation. Italian foods in general taste fresher than back home, namely since there are fewer added ingredients in the products. As...

    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.

    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.

It’s so much fun to see what people come up with...
