The Slavic Club, organized by Professor Anna Kuchta in 1990, focuses on introducing the social and cultural aspects of Slavic cultures 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 weekly Slavic Club's events featuring Slavic art, music, lectures, films, food, documentaries, annual Easter Egg Decorating Workshops, Slavic Dancing Bonanzas, Christmas Parties at Slavic restaurants and trips, such as the upcoming Brighton Beach excursion.
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, to reserve their spot ASAP because they are going fast.
Each participant needs to fill out SHU Waiver Form; using "Brighton Beach 2018" as the name of this event, by no later than Monday, April 16.
