Image of Brighton BeachThe Slavic Club was organized by Professor Anna Kuchta in 1990. It currently has over 900 members and 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. All that are interested are encouraged to contact the Slavic Club advisor, Professor Anna Kuchta, or Santiago E Losada (Slavic Club President), to reserve their spots as soon as possible because they are going fast.

Each attendee will need to fill out SHU Waiver Form using "Brighton Beach 2019" as the name of this event. Form should be submitted no later than Monday, April 8th.
