From Our Students

Jessica Gindelsky ('17): Being a member of the Russian Club at UMass Amherst was finding a home away from home. I was thrilled to find a welcoming and supportive community where I could make friends and learn more about the cultural traditions I grew up with in my family. It was wonderful to be able to enjoy events through the semester. The field trips we took were simultaneously educational and fun!
