"My journey through the Italian minor has not only exposed me to the beautiful language, but also to its rich culture. Through my Italian 375 courses, I have learned about the history, ideology, and morality of the Italian Renaissance. I have also been exposed to great works from authors such as Boccaccio, Tasso, and Aretino, which have become some of my favorites of the Italian canon."


Carissima Jessica, 

I can’t tell you how wonderful it has been to have you as a student. You are such a beautiful person and I feel so lucky to have had the time to get to know youI will always remember your moving essay in Italian 202. It’s gorgeous! Thanks for the wisdom and joy you brought to class. Please keep in touch. Much love and Congratulations!

Dear Jessica, 

It has been a great pleasure accompanying you on your journey of learning the Italian language and culture. It's difficult to imagine being there your first day in Italian 101 and now you are graduating still listening to me drone on in my literature courses. You have been not only a great student but also an invaluable source of inquisitiveness; and you have kept me on my toes as a teacher. I want to thank you for your time, your interest, and your dedication. I wish you so much success and I cannot wait to hear about it!
