Brighton BeachSeton Hall's Slavic Club will be making its annual trip to Brighton Beach, NY, on Saturday, April 12 at 11 a.m. On this trip, for a $25 fee, members of the Slavic Club – and any member of the Seton Hall community – are invited to come explore the vibrant culture of the "largest Russian Community in North America." There, they will get to experience a number of cultural events such as shopping and walking the Coney Island boardwalk, as well as eating at an authentic Russian restaurant. 

The fee covers transportation and dinner at the restaurant. Attendees will be picked up by the Rec Center at 11 a.m. and return there at approximately 7 p.m. Space is limited to a first come, first serve basis, so all of those who are interested are encouraged to contact the Slavic Club advisor, Professor Anna Kuchta, at Anna.Kuchta@shu.edu to reserve their spot before April 3, as well as complete the necessary travel waiver by April 7.  

The Slavic club, organized and run by Professor Anna Kuchta since 1990, focuses on introducing the social and cultural aspects of Slavic culture to the University. The Slavic Club states its main purpose, besides drawing students into the Russian and East European Studies Program, as promoting diversity and tolerance, as well as trying to bridge ethnic and cultural divides. This is done through Slavic music, art and trips, such as the upcoming Brighton Beach excursion.
