The purpose of our organization is to celebrate the rich cultural heritage of Russia, and areas in which Russian culture is prominent – in both Eastern Europe and in the Greater Cleveland community. We also wish to educate the Case community about Russian culture and provide a place where students can practice speaking the language with native speakers. Our events have included an annual Russian Tea Party, movie showings at the Cleveland Museum of Art, trips to Russian-themed events in the Greater Cleveland area including the Russian Festival and Maslenitsa, and excursions to the Russian grocery store Yeleseyevskiy Deli. We have also collaborated with The International Multicultural Exchange organization to bring Russian culture to a greater audience on campus. Although we are a newly recognized organization, we have continued to grow every day, and strive to bring a diverse perspective to the Case campus.
