The University of Michigan Polish Club is a student run organization with the purpose of spreading Polish culture on campus and to the surrounding areas. We bring together Polish students by organizing a wide variety of social and cultural events throughout the year. Students experience Polish culture by participating in the special events such as Wigilia, Andrzjeki, and Fat Tuesday.
Aside from all the events hosted by the club, we work closely with our friends from the Polish American Congress in assisting them with the organization of the Annual Ann Arbor Polish Film festivals. We have strong ties with the Center for Russian and Eastern European studies and help them accommodate visitors they invite from Poland and neighboring Slavic countries, such as President Kwasniewski who visited us last fall. Our club was also involved in the World Tour where several of our members performed the traditional Polonez dance, entertaining guests while they enjoyed numerous Polish dishes.
The video below features fellow club members who describe their experience with Polish Club. The first interview is conducted in Polish, however the subsequent interviews are all in English. Enjoy!
