Visit the UK French Club website for more detailed information. The club meets twice monthly. We offer cultural and conversational activities, including the Table française, during which we meet at a Lexington restaurant for food and French conversation, as well as Apéro, which takes place at the Max Kade House and offers fun French lessons or cultural activities and more conversation--and often free food! All activities are organized by graduate student teaching assistants in the French section of UK's Modern & Classical Languages, Literatures & Cultures Department. Find us on Facebook (UK French Club) for reminders on the morning of scheduled activities. Our semester schedule is posted here, and includes lots of Lexington-area Francophone events.

JAPAN: Japanese Culture in Kentucky Society (JCiKS)
- The University of Kentucky's Japanese Culture in Kentucky Society (JCIKS) is a student run organization aimed at providing students at the University of Kentucky the opportunity to engage in social activities and meetings exemplifying Japanese culture as seen in Kentucky. In addition, JCIKS aims to provide tutoring in the Japanese language for non-Japanese students, and English tutoring for students from Japan. JCIKS also exists to offer assistance and support for students from Japan studying at the University of Kentucky, with the goal of fostering a spirit of community among students from Japan and students interested in Japan.
- Regular meetings occur every Thursday night at 7 pm in Room 203 of Whitehall Classroom Building. All UK students, professors, and staff with interest in Japanese language or culture are welcome.

- The UK Russian Club sponsors monthly Russian Tea, an event that provides Russian speakers of all levels the opportunity to speak Russian in an informal setting. Everyone is welcome! In addition, the Club sponsors film showings, lectures, and cultural events throughout the semester. The highlight of the Club's activities is RUSSIAN WEEK, which is held in the spring semester of each academic year. This week features traditional egg painting, films, folk dancing, and other activities. The week is capped off by a Russian dinner to which participants contribute some sweet or savory Russian dish. A wildly popular book auction is also held, and graduating Russian majors are honored. In addition, the Club sponsors an annual t-shirt design competition that becomes the logo for that year's shirt.
