Matthew Price ’05
In addition to his major & minors at Lewis & Clark, Matthew studied Russian in Nizhny Novgorod for one semester and Kazakh in Kazakhstan for two summers. He traveled extensively in the former Soviet Union. A photo narrative of his travels can be seen at http://www.lclark. edu/~russkie/price/ index.htm.
Recalling his time at Lewis & Clark, Matthew said: “Throughout my four years at college, the Russian Section has consistently supported my efforts to develop linguistic and research skills for studying the former Soviet Union. No matter what avenue of study I wanted to pursue, the Russian professors were always encouraging and available to help.
Russian language training has enabled me to travel independently and confidently throughout the region and allowed me to get to know the people and culture of Central Asia on a personal level.
Matthew has been accepted into the graduate program of Central Eurasian Studies at Indiana University and plans to begin his studies in the fall ’08. He looks forward to more adventures traveling throughout the heart of Asia.
