Who we are?

We are a group of students at Iowa State University who wished to join efforts to create a place to share our common culture related to the former Soviet Union. The main purpose of our organization is creating a warm atmosphere for students and families from the former Soviet Union.

Our organization is for all students and families at ISU who can communicate in Russian. RSSA organizes various activities such as meetings and get-togethers, the Fall Picnic to greet the newcomers, celebration of important cultural dates such as March 8 (the International Women's Day), New Year's Day and others. RSSA also periodically organizes trips to different cultural venues in the U.S. with a purpose of introducing the American culture to our members.
