College Series - Belgorod State University
Here's a university I had never heard of (or the town either): Belgorod State University (BSU?). It is located in Belgorod Oblast, which is in the southern part of Russia, on the border with Ukraine. [Note: "oblast" is an administrative division in slavic countries. This is not the same as "state", but rather more like "zone", "province", "area" or "region".]
Belgorod State University is quite large, with 89 departments. It is known for its program dedicated to teaching Russian, both on campus and around the world. Looks beautiful!
