Major Representatives are chosen each year by the Chair of the Italian Department. This year our Major Representatives are:
- Zoe Guastella '13
- Mairin O'connor '13
- Laura Silla '14
The major representative, commonly called “the major reps,” are Italian majors in their senior and junior year respectively who officially represent the majors to the department faculty and other students. These students are available to talk with students informally about the Italian major and to serve as a resource for declared majors as they complete work in the major. Representatives may bring issues to the department on behalf of majors. They help organize department events including major teas in the fall and spring. On the occasion of a search for a faculty member or the case of a reappointment, tenure, or promotion of a faculty member of the department, the major representatives assist the department and the College in soliciting and evaluating student views about the candidates or the case.
