What is the WSU Slavic Klub?

Founded in 2003, the Slavic Klub is for WSU students interested in all things Slavic. Members have the opportunity to learn more about different Slavic cultures (such as Russian, Ukrainian, Slovak, Bosnian, Macedonian, Serbian, Croatian, and Polish), meet people and make friends, and attend different interesting events around the Detroit area. The Slavic Klub has also raised money for Slavic scholarships. Some of the highlights of this past year’s Slavic Klub activities include: 

  • A Slavic Social
  • A Slavic End-of-the-Year Party
  • The CMLLC Winter Ball
  • A Slavic Cuisine Workshop with an Uzbek Twist, featuring Russian pelmeni, Slovak Syrova Pomazanka, and Uzbek samsa.
