For the past four years, Western University’s Canadian Italian Awareness Organization (CIAO) is a student association that strives to integrate Italian Canadians on campus. The club hosts many events throughout the year in order to promote Italian traditions, culture, and way of life. From monthly meetings providing home-cooked Italian meals and Holiday dinners in London to bocce ball tournaments and briscola card games, CIAO is a welcoming and spirited student collective–many even consider the club as their second family at Western. Each year, the amount of members continues to grow, ranging from students with strong Italian heritages to those who are merely fascinated by Italian culture. When it comes to CIAO, tutti sono benvenuti a tavola!
