MPGU Buddy Club is a student organization, which was established in 2016 in Moscow Pedagogical State University. Nowadays the organization has about 50 members and its number is constantly growing. Our main goal is to help foreign students during their stay in Moscow. Local students, Buddies, will be your friends and helping hands. They will do their best to make your stay in Moscow as nice and convenient as possible. Moreover, we support the idea of integration and mutual respect among students.
For foreign students staying and studying in Moscow means getting new experience, getting to know many unknown places and usually it is not easy for them to find their way in the city or in the university system. They can also face a problem of an uncomfortable language barrier. That is why the members of MPGU Buddy Club do their best to make the stay of foreign students as pleasant as possible.
Our main goal is to integrate international students into social and university life in MPGU, help you to get acquainted with lots of new people from all over the world.
MPGU Buddy Club organizes a series of events for international students:
- Welcome Party for newcomers, held in the beginning of every semester
- Introduction to MPGU life
- Walking tours around Moscow
- Russian Speaking Club, held weekly
- Quiz Nights
- Holidays celebration, e.g. New Year, Halloween, Maslenitsa, etc.
