Student Groups

MSU has over 700 registered student organizations, including these related to European, Russian, and Eurasian studies.

Eurasian Student Association

The Eurasian region includes 15 former Soviet countries that share similar, yet distinct, cultures, languages and histories. Countries covered are (in alphabetical order) Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Russian Federation, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan. The region covers a sixth of Earth's land surface and has a total population of over 245 million.  here are many students and scholars at MSU who come from the Eurasian region. There are also MSU faculty and academic staff who conduct research in Eurasia. The activities our Association plans to implement will encourage greater diversity and inclusion, which will help these students adjust and enjoy American campus life and provide them with opportunities to share their cultural background and heritage, as well as the research they conduct in the region. Our motto is “connect, engage, appreciate” through understanding each other, learning about each other, and appreciating the cultures, languages, histories, and peoples of the Eurasian region.
