All faculty, staff and students are invited to attend Global Insights: "Ukraine" on March 23, at 11:30 a.m., in the Rose Room, Brennan Hall, Rm. 509. First-year student, Serhii Kuzmin ’26, a computer science major, will present on his home country of Ukraine.

Most are aware that currently Ukraine is struggling to keep its sovereignty. This Global Insights presentation will focus on the country, the people, the culture, and traditions that make Ukraine the homeland of over 43 million people.

"It makes me feel really good to walk around the city and the parks," added Kuzmin, shown at right, in front of the monument to Yaroslav the Wise.

He described the landscape and climate as "pretty diverse," with four seasons, mountains and seaports. Located in the Carpathian mountains is Bukovel, the largest ski resort in Eastern Europe. 

Kuzmin shared "golden memories" of his mother's cooking, and of visits to an amusement park with his father. He said he misses the big pot of Borscht she would make for the family, along with other favorite Ukrainian cuisine.
