Description

On Thursday, December 5, Dr. Angela Brintlinger visited three Russian language classes at Walnut Hills High School. Over the course of three hours, the 38 students prepared four different Russian dishes to make an entire meal: shchi, kulebyaka, salad Olivier, and compot for dessert. For more details (and a few cooking tips!), please visit the Slavic Center website.

The Russian language program at Walnut Hills is one of the largest in the state, and many future Buckeyes start their Russian language journey there. Each spring, students from Walnut Hills participate in the Ohio K-12 Russian Olympiada, held on the main campus of OSU, which is organized by SEELC and the Center for Slavic and East European Studies (CSEES). SEELC and CSEES have maintained a strong connection with the Cincinnati high school, sharing pedagogical consultations and guest lectures as well as dance and music performances.
