Student Comments

Here's what some current and former students have to say about our programs:

You could not ask for a better and more respected foreign language department than UW Slavic Language & Lit!

--Steve Borgford

The faculty and staff of the UW have been my support system throughout the furthering of my education. I first came to the UW as a high school student for World Languages Day.  The trip introduced me to Slavic languages. Upon acceptance to the UW, I declared Russian as my major. As a first generation college student with an insatiable thirst for knowledge, I was hungry to learn more. Searching for an additional major, I knew I had found it when a guest in our Russian language class spoke about the Russia, East Europe and Central Asia track of European Studies (REECAS).
