Eric Joseph Alseth, Fall 2016 Participant
This program teaches how to navigate the complex bureaucratic systems that purvey Russia, and the world as a whole.

Eric Joseph Alseth, Fall 2016 Participant
My favorite part of this program was the integration into Russian culture and the ability to spend time in a culturally rich environment such as Moscow. The options I had to experience Russian culture were almost limitless! I was able to go to concerts, sporting events, and actually immerse myself in Russian culture in a variety of ways. Additionally I made local friends and was given tips as to the best options for food and special events in the city.

Fall 2019 Participant
My favorite part of this program was all of the new people I met from around the world. Being in this situation together where you are trying new things and experiencing a country together is an incredible bonding experience. This program will introduce you to so many new people that will all love to do things with you and explore Russia.
