"The Russian Institute was a warm, caring home inside a sprawling university all too often cold and bureacratic, despite its best intentions.  Inculcation of a spirit of critical-mindedness was the hallmark of the Russian Institute.  The informal cross-fertilization of ideas, discussions in the halls with visiting scholars and students from a wide variety of disciplines, and intense "brown bag" lunchoeons...these were the highlights of my graduate school days."
