After a few quiet days, we’ve got a jam-packed week coming up! Details below.
Missed out on Mardi Gras? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered 🙂 The Russian version has fewer beads and more pancakes, but it’s just as much fun! Drop by the WakerSpace between 11 and 1 on Friday, February 28th, and get some freshly made bliny (pancakes). You can even learn to make your own!
Call for Applications for Dobro Slovo
The WFU chapter of Dobro Slovo, the national Slavic honors society, is currently calling for applications for this year. To be eligible, students must have taken at least two years of a Slavic language, with an average GPA of 3.5 in Slavic classes, and an overall GPA of 3.0. Students must also indicate an ongoing interest in the study of Slavic languages and cultures, or in using them professionally.
To apply, please send the following to Dr. Clark at email@example.com: 1) an unofficial transcript, and 2) a short (1-2 paragraphs) statement about their interest in Slavic languages and cultures, and their future plans regarding them. Please submit the materials by March 15.
Students whose applications are chosen to be forwarded to the national office will also need to submit a 1-time $35 application fee. Students for whom this will be a financial hardship can request that the fee be waived.
Please send any questions to Dr. Clark at firstname.lastname@example.org.
