New Student Buddies

160 HSE students joined as volunteer buddies in August to provide assistance for foreign students.

Buddies are Here to Help

HSE’s first Summer University has come to an end. Some 40 students from an array of countries, ranging from Brazil and the U.S. to South Korea and China, took part in the University. HSE ensured that living in Moscow and studying at the Summer University were as easy and comfortable for the students as possible. To do this, a number of volunteers and Buddies – ordinary HSE students – actively participated in the Summer University’s activities.
