    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. Generalizing a curriculum to such an extent is an absolute disservice to this program, not to mention tremendously difficult, considering the breadth of material covered these...
