BOSS (Baruch Organization of Soviet Students)

BOSS is aimed to unite Jewish students of Russian background by informing and educating the students about their community and traditions. We encourage students to share knowledge and stories with one another while spending their leisure time over a game of cards. All Russian-speaking and non-speaking students are welcome to enjoy hours of endless laughter and great company.
