Cultural Activities in NY/NJ

The Inserra Chair is pleased to offer a select number of complimentary tickets to students interested in attending relevant cultural programs off campus in the vibrant Italian region encompassing NJ and NY. Such programs include film festivals, theatre festivals, exhibits, etc. Click for Summer 2014 activities or see below.

NYC can be easily reached via direct bus (Decamp 66) or train (NJ Transit) from campus. Click for specific directions by bus and by train.

The basic requirement is to be a Montclair State student enrolled in an Italian class during the semester in which the cultural program is presented (or the semester following the date of the program)

This initiative is part of the Inserra Chair's mission of promoting Italian and Italian American Studies also through the cultural enrichment of the students enrolled in the Italian program to which the Inserra chair is linked in the Department of Spanish and Italian.
