Biographical / Historical

The Russian Circle was established in the early to mid-1990s and renamed the Russian Slavic Students Association (RSSA) in approximately 2014. In 2020, RSSA was renamed the Russian Slavic Central Asian Student Association (RSCA). Its mission is to provide students with opportunities to become more familiar with Russian culture, language, history, society, and politics. The RSCA is the only Slavic/Soviet/post-Soviet cultural group at Tufts and is endorsed by the Russian Language and Cultural Studies Program through the Department of International Literary and Cultural Studies.

The Russian Slavic Central Asian Student Association’s events and meetings are located in the Russian House on 101 Talbot Ave. The Russian House houses eight undergraduate students in their second to fourth year.
