Russian Department Welcome-(Back) Meeting

Please join us at a welcome-(back) meeting for all students interested in, or already studying, Russian culture at the college. Scholars of Russia among our faculty and staff, majors and intellectual fellow-travelers will be there to celebrate the newest arrivals on campus and talk about plans for the new year. We'll also introduce you to our new Language Assistant, Kristina Diachenko, who will be zooming in from Nizhnii Novgorod!

The meeting will take place by Zoom on Friday, August 28 (the end of the first week of classes) at 4pm EST: https://amherstcollege.zoom.us/j/95221105409.

We look forward to seeing you on August 28! Please let Triin Vallaste (tvallaste@amherst.edu) know if you have any questions.

With best wishes,
The Amherst College Russian Department
