Russian Flagship-Sponsored Events
In the fall 2018 semester, the following Russian Flagship events will take place on a regular basis:
Russian Tea: Thursdays at 11:00 am, 315 Bradley Memorial Building (unless otherwise specified)
Social Hour: Once per month, specific date and time TBD, 315 Bradley Memorial Building (unless otherwise specified)
Please see the calendar below for a full list of program events.
Extracurricular Activities Participation
Russian Flagship students are encouraged to attend as many extracurricular events as possible. Russian Flagship extracurricular events provide important opportunities for students to get to know other students outside of their “cohort,” meet scholars and other Russian-speaking visitors to campus and learn about their research or work, expand their cultural knowledge, and practice using their Russian in social situations. These activities are an important part of the program. Students can monitor their attendance at extracurricular events through the Russian Flagship portal on Learn@UW.
Students who are unable to attend regular Russian Flagship events should report non-Flagship events. Students are also encouraged to check out the calendar for the Center for Russia, East Europe, and Central Asia (CREECA) for more Russia-related events on campus and in the community, or to attend Русский Стол, a Russian language table for the Madison community, held on Thursdays, 6:00-8:00 pm, at Michelangelo's on State Street. Please contact Sarah Bennett for more information about Русский Стол.
During the semester, if you are a Russkii dom resident, you should also plan to attend regular ILC dinners and to sit at the Russkii dom table.
Students who are unable to attend in-person events are encouraged to utilize the program's list of online Russian resources.
