The Italian Club at Chapman University aims to be much more than academic. The goal of our Club is to create a social network among people with the common passion for Italian culture and language. We’re all about promoting a more Italian lifestyle through cultural understanding, and social interactions with the greater Italian community of Orange county. Film showings, soccer games, study groups, food fairs, Italian Carnavale, readings, and conversational groups are just some of the ways students can become involved. It’s also a great opportunity for students interested in studying or working abroad, as it provides a casual and fun setting outside the classroom environment to hone language skills and to learn about the regional cultures that make up the country of Italy.
The purpose of the Italian Club is to give Chapman a better understanding of Italy and its culture. Food, cinema, art and various other topics are discussed. There will be occasional field trips to Italian places such as the Italian Culture Institute in LA. There will also be Italian movie nights and events inspired by Italian themes.
We plan to bring Italian culture to campus and engage students taking the course or studying abroad!
