Russian House/Русский дом

Будьте как дома в Русском доме!

Make yourself at home in Russian House!

Interested in Russian? Want to live in a supportive and fun environment with other students who share that interest? Intrigued by the idea of becoming part of an internationally-oriented community on campus? Русский дом, Russian House, may be for you!  

In Русский дом, students:

A language program coordinator lives with students to coordinate programs and social activities, provide tutoring, and support students in using Russian on the floor. In 2013-14, Madina Djuraeva, a native speaker of Russian from Uzbekistan and graduate student in Curriculum & Instruction, will serve as the Русский дом language program coordinator.

"As a Flagship student, I know that learning a language involves so much more than just putting in the classroom hours; it involves completely submerging oneself in that language and culture. Living in the Russian House allows me to do just that, while living among peers who share my Russian language goals. Having a comfortable environment in which I can explore and expand my Russian skills with friends has been so beneficial to my language development."

- Kasey King, Russian Flagship Program, 2013
