Follow them through the semester to learn more about the Cornell in Rome program, the eternal city itself, and of course, the bloggers themselves.
Ciao! I am Betty Huang, fourth year architecture student at Cornell University. This is my second time in Rome; I spent a summer two years ago in Rome for an art studio. Nevertheless, Rome with all its history and antiquity offers endless exciting opportunities for exploration and study. I am excited to be blogging about our semester!
My name is Ben Hoffman. I am a fourth year architecture student from Houston, Texas. When I am not studying, I enjoy biking, drawing, traveling and spending time with friends. I am very excited about the coming months that I will spend in Rome and share with this blog. I am looking forward to new experiences, new people, and great travels. While I will miss my Ithaca home – I know that amazing memories wait for me in Rome and abroad!
I am a third year fine arts major visiting Cornell for the semester from the Art Institute of Chicago. Having previously lived in rome, I am excited to spend the semester focusing on understanding what makes this city such a simultaneousley stimulating and challenging creative environment. I am also looking forward to rediscovering all the amazing things I love about Rome and sharing my reflections.
