Contributors to the Spring 2017 edition of the Cornell in Rome blog are Cornell University Architecture, Art, and Planning students Adam Bronfin and Maria Ouping. Pictures come from Maddy Eggers and Adam Bronfin. Follow them through the semester to learn more about the Cornell in Rome program, the Eternal City, and of course, the bloggers themselves.
My name is Adam Bronfin, and I’m a third-year student in the Urban and Regional Studies program. I’m from Ridgewood, N.J., a suburb of New York City, so living in Rome is a completely new experience for me. I hope to cover everything this semester, from cooking dinner with my roommates and sightseeing in Rome to lectures and updates on all my classes.
Hello, this is Maria Ding, one of your fellow bloggers for Cornell Rome this spring! As a food fanatic, frequent flyer and architecture student, I hope to explore all the excitement Rome has to offer and share these details in my writing and photography. As ecstatic as I am to be in Rome, I am also going to make the most of my time here by possibly making trips to surrounding cites such as London, Amsterdam, Warsaw and Santorini. So keep up!
Ciao everyone, I’m Maddy Eggers, a third year architecture student here to regale you with a visual narrative of our Rome semester. Apart from documenting the major excursions and vistas, I aim to bring you into our day-to-day lives in and around the Palazzo — in Rome, even the everyday is sublime. Stay posted for weekly content, directly from the eternal city!
