The Umbra Institute launches its podcast

It is, without a doubt, evident that podcasts are becoming an essential media source for sharing ideas and knowledge. The Umbra Institute recognizes the need to stay up-to-date with current trends that focus on educational and international experiences. It is with great pleasure that we announce the release of The Umbra Podcast! Our podcast aims to bring the experiences of students studying abroad in Perugia, Italy to listeners across the globe.

In the beginning of February 2023, Umbra staff members brought to life The Umbra Podcast with two main goals. The first is to provide an honest portrayal of the experiences of the students, staff, faculty, alumni, and the local community. The second is to provide students with the skills and experience of podcast creation for academic and professional purposes. The Umbra Podcast is a tool used to engage the current students, provide entertainment, and inform future students about their studies at Umbra and life in Perugia. All students are encouraged to take part in a future podcast to discuss their current adventures and academics or provide advice to future students! We aim to create content by the students for students.

As of now, we have released four episodes of The Umbra Podcast that address the life of full Italian immersion students, how to make friends while studying abroad, the experience of an alum, and taking care of oneself while adjusting to life abroad.
