Annual Russian Dinner

Annual Russian Dinner

The Russian Club and Russian Department held their annual Russian dinner on Monday, April 16. Students, faculty, and alumni enjoyed Russian dishes (borsht, bliny, and beef stroganoff) and participated in traditional dances and songs led by the folk ensemble Barynya from New York City.

Earlier that day, Erica Lally 08 (Russian and International Studies) returned to Dickinson to speak about her experiences after graduation as a Fulbright Scholar, during which she collected oral histories from members of the Russian intelligentsia. While on campus, Erica also spoke to students about her current position at Human Rights Watch in New York City and the how her knowledge of Russian and study abroad experiences have positively impacted her career.
