Who we are

ASIR – Associazione Studenti Italiani a Riga (Association of Italian students in Riga) is a non-profit student association created to provide help and, most of all, a sense of community for the Italian students enrolled at RSU.

Our main aim is to unite the Italian community within RSU and to represent Italy in the marvellous international community that RSU has created.

We would like to offer support to those students coming from Italy who need help to adjust to their new surroundings. Of course this association hopes to remain a reference point for Italian and Italian speaking students throughout their studies.

Additionally we have the privilege to represent Italy in Latvia and at RSU, so we intend to participate as much as possible in events organised by other international communities, but also by our host country, Latvia. We plan to organise events ourselves to promote Italy and its culture.

We are students helping students! We have been collaborating with the Italian Embassy and are looking forward to expanding the network of organisations we work with in order to grow as an association as well as to make our study experience as complete as possible.
