Ready for Rome

Welcome to the Rome Business Program blog. My name is Dan and I'm a junior pursuing a BA in International Relations with a concentration in International Economics and a BS in Business. In Rome, I'm studying at the fashion school Accademia Italiana through the Rome Business Program.

I'll be in Italy from January 12 to May 15. Aside from studying...one of the reasons I chose to study abroad in Italy was for the gelato - until I discovered that it is merely ice cream with less air. What a downer...thanks for nothing, Italy.

I'm actually looking forward to: learning more Italian than my own last name; seeing how Little Italy pizza in my hometown of Boston compares with that of Big Italy; racing around the Continent before my weakening dollars run out; and of course demonstrating my remarkable agility by riding a scooter.

Check back for more updates soon...
