Fall 16 Ambassador
My name is Tara Nagar and I am so excited to be an UmbrAmbassador because I love talking about Perugia, my classes at Umbra and my study abroad experience! I am majoring in Computer Science, but at Umbra I studied Italian, the history and culture of Italian food, art history, and the business of wine. Each one of these classes allowed me to further understand the Italian culture I was immersed in every day living in Perugia. I came to Perugia to experience genuine, small-town Italian culture while living, not just studying, abroad. Within the first few weeks, the bartender at the café I often go to was already greeting me by name as I walked inside. Whenever my friends and I returned to Perugia from a weekend adventure, we were always “glad to be home” in Perugia, a city that truly feels like it’s ours.
