Students can find a wide range of social opportunities in our program. Not only we have a very active Italian Club, but we meet every week with our students at Tavola Italiana. Weekly conversation hours are available too. For more information, contact Professor Chiara Fabbian. The city of Chicago offers exciting opportunities for those who are interested in Italian language and culture. For instance, check the Istituto Italiano di Cultura for information about concerts, exhibits, public lectures, conferences etc.
