The Spring 2007 semester is underway! Students from colleges and universities from across the United States arrived last week. Since their arrival students have been attending orientation sessions, acclimating themselves to life in one of Italy’s greatest cities, and preparing for a semester of coursework. Today, students began a week-long period of intensive Italian language courses. Italian courses will continue throughout the semester but this intensive program was created to help students in the first few weeks of living in Perugia.
After this week of intensive language courses, students will attend courses as part of the General Studies Program at Umbra while others will take advantage of Umbra’s Full Immersion program. For more information on the academic offerings at Umbra, please visit our website: www.umbra.org.
