Just as we expected, the Heritage Studies program broke attendance records at this past week’s Italian Night. We had visitors from all walks of the Regis Community, including professors, graduate students, undergraduates, and faculty. Students from Dr. Pellegrino's IT 101 class made presentations throughout the night about Italian food and culture. We sampled many authentic Italian dishes including pasta puttanesca, gorgonzola risotto, pesto pasta, proscuitto and melon, fresh baked ciabatta and focaccia, some bubbly prosecco, homemade tiramisu, an apricot glazed fruit tarte, chocolate mousse, and espresso to finish.
It was wonderful to see both familiar and new faces at this Heritage Studies event. As the year has progressed, the events we host are growing in popularity and we can only thank the members of the Regis College community for giving our program and students all the support thus far. We would also like to thank PaGE and Erin Wisniewski Director of International Student Services for co-sponsoring this event. We look forward to more nights like this in the coming future!
