Russian Society (MURS)


Russia can perhaps be best summed up in the words of Britain’s Winston Churchill, “Russia is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.” Perhaps that is exactly what we at the Russian Society are trying to solve or understand, through song (karaoke nights), dance (bar nights), movie viewings, game nights, social conversation gatherings (language practice) and much much more!

We are a young club but everyone starts from somewhere and we hope to grow throughout this year organizing more and more events. We wish to also stress that this is NOT a society for Russians exclusively, rather anyone with interest to share or experience Russian culture and language as well as discover a little more about the biggest country in the world. With over 170 ethnic groups eleven time zones, and vegetation varying from semi-desert to arctic circle Russia truly has something for everyone. So common comrades join us at our next event!!!

Club Aims:

  1. To provide a social environment for students interested in Russian culture.
  2. To promote Russian culture around campus.
  3. To provide a social forum to practice language skills.
  4. To provide a forum to share experiences when travelling in Russia for students interested in going there or to eastern Europe.
