Students from Tucson's Academy of Math and Science (AMS) practice their Russian skills during visit to UA campus for Monster Bash!

April 22nd, 2019

Thirty students from Tucson's Academy of Math and Science (AMS) got a chance to put their Russian to use during their visit to UA on April 11, 2019. The middle schoolers visited the Department of Russian and Slavic Studies to take part in the campus-wide "Monster Bash" event on the UA Mall. The group of sixth- and seventh-graders made Monster Bash passports to participate in the games and presentations on the UA Mall, which were presented by students from two general education courses, RSSS 315: Vampires and Werewolves, with course professor Dr. Colleen Lucey, and GER160A1: From Animation to Zombies with course professor Dr. Joela Jacobs.

The middle school students got to put their Russian language to practice by visiting with faculty, grads and other students in the department. Keep up the good work learning Russian! 

The Department of Russian and Slavic Studies wishes to thank all the parents and chaperones for accompanying the young scholars to campus. We are especially grateful to Mr. Gavin Roddy and Ms. Svitlana Holm for their assistance organizing the visit!
