Next, I wanted to remind everyone of the Russia Study abroad Informational being held in the McDowell Center (Dr. Harrison’s office) on Monday, October 10th at 12:00 pm. Details regarding the itinerary, costs, benefits and scholarships available will be discussed as well as any questions you may have for the trip.
Please keep in mind that our Documentary showcase is coming up! This year we are screening “Save My Speech Forever,” a documentary about the Russian poet Osip Mandelshtam. It is being hosted in the LAC on October 18th at 12:30p.m. along with light refreshments and Director of Photography Roman Sivozhelezov will be present for Q&A following the film. We usually treat our guest to lunch/dinner after the film, so if you cant make the film, feel free to join us then!
