We have prepared a performance for our “freshers”, where the main heroes were the European pirates and the representatives of an African tribe. In the course of our performance, the guys were to pass several interesting and unusual tasks which they coped with perfectly,” shares the emotions a student of group SG-206 Olga Efimova.
