“Studying abroad was an experience I was looking forward to when I came to Ramapo in 2017. And in Spring 2020, I realized my dream. My trip to Florence, Italy was a life-changing experience, culturally and personally. I learned so much about myself and others around me. Even though my time in Italy was unfortunately cut short, I enjoyed every second of it. I was grateful for the opportunity to not only explore across Italy, but also Germany, Denmark, The Netherlands, Switzerland and Spain. My experiences in these countries will last a life time and are sure to be an influence to my artwork. I am already looking forward to my next trip abroad!

I am a senior Visual Arts major with a concentration in Electronic Art and Animation. What I love about my major are the connections I have made with faculty and my peers. This semester I am serving as the Vice President of Omicron Delta Kappa and the Secretary of the Animation Club. I enjoy collaborating with other students on projects and events.” – Sela Stazzone ’21 graduated with a Bachelor’s in Visual Arts with a concentration in Electronic Art and Animation.
