General Studies and Food & Sustainability Studies Program Midterm Exams
The Museum Practicum students have been working hard all semester helping our neighbor, the Cathedral Museum, located in the courtyard in front of Umbra. They have prepared an entertaining and fun 45-minute tour where you will learn about the fascinating collection of relics, hear tales of the saints, and discover new things about Perugia.
*Please RSVP through the Umbra App or by email to Julie ([email protected]).
Students from courses with community engagement and Independent Studies come together in these conference-style presentations to share with you how they were involved in Perugia and what they learned about Italian culture. Prizes for audience members and presenters. Sandwiches, snacks, and refreshments served in the library throughout the event.
