Middlebury

Sputnik, the student club

Though Sputnik is not an official department activity, it is popular with students from different backgrounds, who join members of our Russian courses and Middlebury's many Russian and Eastern European exchange students to talk, listen to the latest Russian pop hits, go on excursions (such as a recent trip to Brighton Beach in New York City), celebrate holidays and special occasions, and generally have a good time.  A perfect opportunity to get to know others with an interest in things Russian and interact with students from a wide variety of backgrounds.
