Despite a slight case of post-holiday rain, Perugia was ready for her new American students. Today almost a hundred and fifty students had their Orientation in the main room of Perugia’s beautiful fourteenth century town hall. Each of the staff members explained their part in the Umbra team and gave advice and special instructions for all students. In addition, police
inspector Michele Canneschi gave an amusing but very to-the-point speech on safety in Italy, one that no student will soon forget. Tomorrow is an open house and the Italian placement exam and then Monday Intensive Italian lessons begin. Welcome, studenti dell’Umbra Institute, and all the best for this semester’s adventure!
