The Italian Club

The Italian Club is organized according to the criteria stipulated by the Student Government Association for student organizations. The Italian Club provides members with an opportunity to explore Italian and Italian-American culture through the organization of bi-weekly activities. These activities are both educational and social in that they seek foster interest and appreciation for the culture and the societies of Italians and Italian-Americans. An important aspect of the Italian Club’s mission is to establish contacts with the Italian-American community of Hartford. This community outreach allows the membership to integrate themselves more fully into the dynamics of the city. The Italian Club has initiated and co-sponsored several activities, some geared toward its membership while others open to the entire campus community.

All Trinity undergraduate and graduate students interested in learning about Italian culture are eligible for membership; any person interested might be recognized as a member after attending at least one meeting or activity sponsored by the Club.
