Ciao! My name is Veronica Constable and I am a junior Fine Arts major who will be blogging for the semester. So far, studying here has been an incredible experience- only in Rome can one casually walk into the Pantheon or see the Colosseum. I enjoy drawing, painting, and walking around the glorious city of Rome while eating gelato. My goal for the semester is to try every flavor before I leave Italy. I look forward to sharing my experience about all great things dealing with art, architecture, and Italian culture!
Hi! I’m Michaela and I am a third year Architecture student. Through this blog, Ihope to chronicle my journeys through Europe in an intelligent and concise manner. Being half Italian, Rome is not much of a culture shock to me; nonetheless, I have yet to gain a grasp of the Italian language. If you need me, you can always find me consoling my roommate over the lack of peanut butter.
I am Stephanie Cheung and I am a third year architecture student. I am thrilled to be a contributing photographer for this semester in Rome. I have been loving my experience here so far, and I find joy in exploring the city, aimlessly walking around, and learning about the dense and lush history of Rome. I am excited to fill the shoes as your trusty “doc queen”, and I look forward to continue photographing all things adventure, travel and exploration.
Ciao! My name is Julia Cole and I am a third year Fine Arts major and contributing photographer. I enjoy video games, Jezebel articles, animals, and TV. In my art, I like to work with video installation, photography, graphic design, and performance. When I’mnot catching up on sleep, eating pasta, or doing the above, you can find me on Tumblr reblogging the latest meme.
