Melissa Marino and Marco Saglimbeni are the first students completing a B.A. in Italian Studies in the history of Chapman University. They inaugurate a new and growing path of study at the university. Their professors thank them for their sincere devotion to the study of Italian language and culture and for their hard work during the past four years.
Melissa is graduating with a B.F.A in Theater Performance and a B.A. in Italian Language and Culture, and plans to act onstage, operate her own theatre company, and pursue graduate work in Performing Arts Management in Milan, Italy.
Marco is graduating with a B.S. in Biological Sciences, a B.A. in Italian Language and Culture, and a minor from the University Honors Program. He plans to work for a BioTech/Research company (hopefully an Italian one) or become a Sports Medicine Doctor.
Marco e Melissa, vi auguriamo tanto successo e felicità!
