Italian Photo Display in Alden

April 15 was the date for the official opening of the Italian immigrants photo display in Alden library. More than 60 students and faculty came to the event to welcome the Italian Consul from Detroit, Marco Nobili, and the Vice Consul from Cleveland, Serena Scaiola. There was a question answer session with Marco Nobili, and ribbon cutting, and then the consul stamped the passports and visas of students planning on going to Italy this summer with our study abroad program and director Molly Morrison. Thank you to Annalisa Zanuso for all her hard work putting this wonderful event together. We were honored that the Provost and Dean Scanlan came by to meet the consul.

The next OPI (Oral Proficiency Interview) practice session will be: Thursday, February 18th, 7-9 PM, Gordy 113


The official OPI is required of all German and Spanish majors, as well as all language education majors. We recommend that you begin the practice sessions as early in your career as possible in order to understand what is expected of you in your oral skills.


During this session we will train you and the TA’s on what is involved in the interview and how to improve your results. TA’s will be trained to conduct the interview while students learn along with them. After the training session, each student will do 2 practice telephone interviews with native speakers.


Please let Dr. Partyka ( know if you plan to attend a session.
