Going Home

The time is finally here! It is the week I’ve been dreaming about for months! In just 3 days, I will be back in my own bed in my own home in Jacksonville. I’ll be eating my favorite foods, enjoying American Netflix, and not worrying about speaking English. I won’t have to worry about whether I have Euros or if …

Arrivederci Firenze!

It’s bittersweet to be leaving Florence this week. I’ve been desperately trying to fit in all the last things I haven’t gotten to do yet, but realize that even though I’ve been here for four months, it’s impossible to do everything. I can always save those for the next time. The stress of finals and papers has made my last …

Art Time Capsule

In The Art of Travel, 9. Art & Place, Florence by Delaney1 Comment

I came to Italy for the art and she did not disappoint, kind of. I have always been a firm believer that art isn’t just a canvas with paint or a sculpture that’s a quality of creation that makes you feel something so much more. There is a magic of art pervade into every aspect of life; food, architecture, writing, …

As my time in Florence has come to a close, I have picked up a few tips along the way that will hopefully be of help to future students.

Studying abroad in Florence has definitely been one of the best periods of my life. I experience preemptive nostalgia every day when I remember that I will be moving out of my apartment and saying arrivederci to the city that I have learned to call my home, through all the ups and downs, for the past few months.

Study abroad is an experience that is unparalleled by any other college experience. One is plucked out of one’s familiar environment and let loose in a different country, often with a different and unfamiliar language and culture. Studying abroad might thus seem daunting and scary to many a wide-eyed undergrad. Prior to arriving in Florence, I had expectations and fantasies …

Hop on board the 25 bus and let me take you on a ride through Jordyn’s Guide to NYU Florence. It’s gonna be a bumpy ride, and just like the 25 bus, there’s a good chance this post might be late.

Let’s be honest…

In The Art of Travel, 14. Tips, Florence by Diana2 Comments

I’m not going to pretend that I absolutely fell in love with Florence in the last four-ish months I’ve been here. I haven’t exactly even liked it, however, I think there is something about Florence that works for a lot of students who come here. First, it’s one of the most historical cities I’ve ever been in, let alone lived …
