We focus mainly on Russian culture, but also delve into former USSR nations too! Activities will include fundraising to help organizations based in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, movie screenings, cooking sessions, conversation tables, etc. We strive to become an official club in the fall semester, but need to start meeting this semester first! A great way to share what everyone already knows from growing up, living in, and studying Russian: we all come from different and diverse backgrounds. Meeting agenda: create/approve mission statement approve appointed/volunteering officers brainstorm club social activities brainstorm fundraiser activities propose non-profits to support set date for second meeting.
