Summer General Studies students celebrated their five-week program at the Umbra Farewell Aperitivo on Thursday evening. Staff, faculty, and students mingled at il Birraio, trading favorite anecdotes from the classroom and beyond. Friday morning, students were taking finals; early Saturday morning, they were boarding the bus to the Rome airport.
Students enrolled in Umbra’s Intensive Italian Language through Culture program, however, will continue practicing Italian in the Perugian community through next week. In addition to Italian language courses, the remaining activities include a lecture on the well-known frescoes by Perugino, a Tandem language exchange-turned-Fourth of July barbecue tomorrow, an Umbria Jazz concert and aperitivo, and a farewell dinner on July 12, the last day of the semester.
Time, slow down!
