There are several associations at the Università degli Studi di Perugia which offer students the opportunity to participate in extra-curricular activities:
The Erasmus Student Network (ESN PERUGIA), a non-profit international student organization, focuses on four topics: welcoming, accommodation, integration and outgoing support. The Association was born by the idea of a small group of students who, after taking part to the Erasmus project, could not say goodbye to an experience which indelibly but positively marked their lives. The association’s mission is to provide assistance and enrich the experience of the students who chose Perugia as the city where to spend their studies abroad.
The University Theatre Center (CUT) offers educational sessions as well as the chance to take part in plays.
The University also manages a Choir, directed by Maestro Marta Alunni Pini. Both students and staff can participate. In addition to performing at official University ceremonies (ceremonies for the conferment of honorary degrees, the annual inauguration of the new academic year, etc.) and events throughout Umbria, the Choir has established a number of cultural exchanges with other European university choirs.
The University also has a Chamber Orchestra. Only Italian and enrolled foreign students wishing to join the Orchestra may audition. The Orchestra collaborates with the Choir as well as with various soloists.
The University supports, through various promotional activities, those students participating in the Choir and the Orchestra who are dedicated to continuing the study of music and single musical instruments.
