SRAS NEWS  / MOSCOW EVENTS: SRAS OFFICIAL STATEMENT
29.03.2010


SRAS Official Statement Concerning
the Events of Monday, March 29th, 2010

As you are aware, a tragic event occurred in Moscow on Monday, March 29th.

SRAS learned of the events shortly after they occurred and quickly contacted all SRAS students via their SRAS-issued cell phones to inform them of events, advise them on safety, and, most importantly, to verify their wellbeing. Fortunately, no teachers, employees, or students of SRAS were affected by the events of that day.

Our program in Moscow, including all trips, classes, and seminars, is continuing as planned. Students have taken a field trip to Star City (Zvezdniy gorodok), the training center for Russian cosmonauts. We will also be holding our popular Living and Working in Russia Seminar shortly to discuss issues of living, working, and renting in Moscow for those who are hoping to make this vast, resource rich, and strategically important country part of their long-term career plans.

SRAS considers student safety a top priority. Students in St. Petersburg, Moscow, and now Bishkek are issued cell phones so that they may stay in constant contact with us, their university, and embassy while exploring the city and culture they are visiting and studying. Students are issued insurance and advised to carry their identification, including student identification, at all times in case of emergencies.

In summary, we would like to say that we are fully involved in planning activities for our summer program. Students, as always, are encouraged to remain curious, active, and vigilant. Moscow and Russia are still historically, culturally, and linguistically fascinating destinations that offer not only a great study abroad destination, but great experience towards building a future in diplomacy, business, or academia. We continue to welcome bright and ambitious students to this rich and ancient capital.
