Urban Knight Front and Center: Sofia Ragona Reveals Why She Picked Art U

by Mariebelle Alagbate

Urban Knight Sofia Ragona goes after her goals equally hard on the tennis court and in her fashion marketing class. But before all that, how did she find her way to Academy of Art University?

Sofia is a proud student-athlete representing the Academy as part of the Women’s Tennis Team. Originally from Italy, she came to the United States not really having a clear idea what she wants to take up for college. One thing she’s always been sure of, however, is that she’s an artist. Ultimately, she ended up taking Fashion Marketing under the prestigious School of Fashion.

Check out what else convinced her to choose the Academy over other options out there. And do stay tuned for more as we get to know more of our student-athletes in Urban Knight Front and Center series.


Academy of Art University is the only higher arts education institution in the country to have a full-fledged NCAA athletics program. Request information from our admissions representatives to know more about our student-athlete programs. But athlete or not, rest assured that you can apply now if you’re ready to be a part of our art school community
