Russian House - Porter Dormitory
Residents of the Russian House are expected to speak Russian with each other in the house as much as possible and to take advantage of the presence of the native speakers (native speakers and advanced language students are expected to take some initiative, particularly with residents more hesitant about their speaking skills).
Members of the house will also be expected to participate in preparation for cultural all-campus events and weekly language-oriented events within the house, and to attend the Russian Table in Valentine (everyFriday from 12:00 noon to 1:30 p.m. on the mezzanine level). The House holds Russian Chai at 9:00 p.m. every Thursday night and a Russian film will be shown in the Stirn Auditorium five times this semester at 7 p.m. Please see the Events section for more detailed information on our many activities!
Russian House hosts a чай (chai - an informal gathering and conversation over tea and cookies) every weekon Mondays at 8:00 pm. An Open House is scheduled for Monday February 17, 2014 at 8:00 PM. All students who are currently enrolled in Russian language and culture courses or simply have an interest or background in Russian or Russian culture are always welcome. Please see the Events section for more detailed information about any special чай guests or events.
