RUSSIAN SPEAKERS ASSOCIATION
At the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor
The Russian Speakers Association offers a myriad of events and activities for its members. Here is a list of the few regular events that are held on a bi-weekly basis. There are no commitment requirements although members are encouraged to come to club events as often as they can; everyone knows we always have a great time together!
Every couple of weeks, we like to get together either on a Tuesday or Thursday night. For the 2008-2009 academic year, these meetings will generally take place at the Crazy Wisdom Tea Room or Espresso Royale Cafe, both located in Ann Arbor's downtown area. The meetings are a chance for members to meet new people, enjoy a stimulating conversation in Russian and/or about Russian culture, current events, or anything that interests you! Most attendees are either students of the Russian language or culture or people with Russian roots who want to keep in touch with this part of their heritage, but anyone is welcome. The Russian Speakers Association membership even includes people from outside of the University of Michigan community who share our interests, and we are always willing to extend membership to anyone who would like to become part of our organization!
Movie Nights and Parties
Every once in a while, we get together to enjoy a Russian film, have some snacks, play some Russian card games, or just have a party in a good-natured Russian kind of way! Movie nights and RSA parties are a great way to indulge in the fine Russian humor, and take in the unique perspective of a Russian heritage shared by many of our RSA members.
The movie nights are one of the most popular club events and lots of members participate.
Tired of eating dorm food? Join us once in a while as we visit different local restaurants like Pizza House, Cottage Inn for an enjoyable dinner with friends. If you have any suggestions, just email the board to tell us about any restaurant you find intriguing.
Other Event Ideas
Though we often engage in very active past times, even we realize that sometimes the best form of hanging out is doing nothing, so if you are interested in just getting together for a quiet evening, feel free to join us once a week at locations such as coffee shops where we can just sit down, chat, and relax.
