On 28, August, there took place the first in this academic year meeting of MSPU Buddy Club. This is a student public organization of Moscow State University of education, based on the idea of intercultural understanding, integration and mutual respect. The club helps foreign students of our university to adapt and integrate during academic exchange. It is intended to support the foreigners in different matters: get used to the university and social life, learn something about our culture and traditions.
The curators of the club pay personal attention to each student and are always ready to give advice and help during the first most important days and the whole period of study.
At the beginning of the new academic year MSPU Buddy Club is planning to organize different events such as Welcome Week to get the students acquainted with the club and the university, as well as different trips, excursions not only around the campus, but around Moscow too, tea parties and film watching. During these events we hope to help students make friends from all around the world, feel more at ease in Russia and share their experience about or country and its people. We also hope to encourage intercultural and language exchange and organize thematic evenings according to the students’ preferences.
This year our university receives about 70 foreign exchange students and 600 foreign students and we will be glad to see them at our events.
