The Association of International Students, together with International Office, has developed the 2019-2020 academic year’s plan of cultural and entertainment events for international students, where everyone could find an event to their taste.
“The main AIS activity is connected with adaptation of international students, and is focused on organization of the recreation for international students and SUSU students. That’s why we come up with a work plan for each academic year, so that everyone could become familiar with it and take part in our events,” said Valeria Chachina, Specialist of the International Student Support.
The plan includes socio-cultural events, national holidays, and sports competitions, so that everyone could find something interesting for them and join the AIS events. This applies not only to international and Russian students, but also to the academic staff. The Association is interested in attracting as many people as possible, who would learn more about its activities and cultures of different countries of the world.
Most events are being held on an annual basis and are repeated every year: mini-football tournament, Chinese New Year, Day of Arab Culture, Day of African Culture, and Nowruz. Some of the events were added only this year, for example, writing a letter to a teacher, a shooting range competition, interactive “Around the World” program - communication with school students, and creating a KVN team.
One of the major events will be URAL FEST Ural Forum of International Students and Alumni in November, for the fulfilment of which grant support was obtained from the “Rosmolodezh” Federal Agency for Youth Affairs. Thanks to this grant, SUSU AIS will have an opportunity to exchange experience with other international students’ organisations of the Ural Region universities.
