The Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies will be hosting its annual Russia Day celebration on February 16, 2013.  This is a day-long event for middle and high school students where they come to campus with their teachers to get an “immersion experience” in Russian culture, language, traditions and history.  We offer ethnic foods, Russian games, lessons in the Cyrillic alphabet, a concert of Balkan music and other opportunities to experience the intellectual and cultural riches of both the world’s largest country and the university environment.
