One thing that we have heard over the past year is that as a result of the pandemic, many students don’t feel connected with each other, or that they have reduced opportunities to network and meet peers at other institutions. To that end, the Midwest Slavic Association will be hosting two student-centered events on the evenings of Friday, April 16 and Saturday, April 17. At 6PM EDT on Friday, April 16, we will host a roundtable for students to come and discuss their research interests, career goals, and/or their study strategies and networking approaches during the pandemic. Then on Saturday, April 17 at 6PM EDT as the conference wraps up, the Midwest Slavic Association will host an online student mixer to encourage students to relax, have fun, and mingle.
We hope to see some of you at these events!
