This past Saturday I and four of my fellow Russian students at Union College traveled to Hamilton College to compete in the New York State Russian Language Competition. The competition consisted of four components: a grammar test, reciting a memorized Russian poem, reading a passage in Russian aloud, and presenting a brief monologue about yourself in Russian. We competed against Russian students from Hamilton College, Hobart and William Smith, SUNY Binghamton, and the United States Military Academy. And, in wonderful Union fashion, we had two students take home prizes! Sophomore Erin Waterman won 2nd place at the Intermediate Level and yours truly won 2nd place at the Beginner Level! The competition was so much fun and I’m already looking forward to next year’s at West Point! Well done students! Молодец студенты!
I am a junior in college who is obsessed with all things classic. I adore tortoise shell accessories, wellies, and men's-wear watches. I could read about financial markets or blogs all day and believe that the world is made better by stripes, pearls, and polka-dots. I think that the key to life is a positive attitude and that when that doesn't work, make a list!
