Здравствуйте все!

This is just a quick reminder to everyone that the Multicultural global grounds social hour is being held today in the Palo Duro Lounge from 3:00 to 5:30. Afterwards, the annual Multicultural Karaoke Night will run from 6p-10p and will feature songs being sung from all the culture clubs including: German, Arabic, French, Portuguese, Chinese, members from the International Student Organization and of course RCS. This year the event is Halloween themed, so costumes are encouraged and there will even be prizes handed out to the best dressed!

Please take a glance at our schedule below for events and updates. Most notably is the Food Fair coming up on November 2nd. The food fair will be held from 11am-3pm in the UC Mall and will be an excellent fundraising chance for us as we always sell out. A meeting has been set up in Dr. Harrison’s office on Monday (Oct. 31) at 12:00 to discuss preparations for the event, so if you wish to contribute in any way please do stop by.
Also note that on Friday we will be playing a game of jeopardy that will test your knowledge of Russian history, tourist sites, important people and simple vocabulary. Это будет весело!
