We’ve been extremely busy celebrating our anti-versary: we’ve published books, been for a run in the park, masterminded special projects and organized conferences. But that was only the lead-up to the main event: the Great Festivities week - the culmination of all our celebratory efforts.
Effective from the afternoon of November 27, all the way through the morning of November 28, HSE will be celebrating its Anniversary Night. To allow students and staff to prepare for the event properly and not look like zombies at following day’s lectures, these dates will be partially considered days-off.
The first Culture Café of the new module took place on November 1. It was doubly informative, because it was devoted to two countries at once: Spain and Mexico! Many thanks to HSE international students, who represented them perfectly: Aldo, Jorge, Zaira, Daniel, Ary, Sayuri and Enrique.
Through November 18, HSE students and staff can bring all sorts of electronic waste, from headphones to mixers and irons, to be recycled. The event is traditionally organized by Green HSE, a student organization.
This October World Festival of Youth and Students took place in Sochi bringing together over 20 000 young people from 150 countries. Several HSE international students participated in the event. They have shared their impressions with HSE News Service.
The last Culture Café of the first module was held on October 18, and was dedicated to Finland. It was the very first time ESN HSE Moscow and the International HSE Office hosted the Nordic country! We would like to thank the real Finnish guys, Mira, Minna, Ida, Ville and Eero, who made such a great Culture Café possible.
For Sebastian Billy Anggara, a 20-year-old student from Kediri, Indonesia, coming to HSE to study has been like a dream come true. After learning about HSE from his older brother, who is studying international relations in the Faculty of World Economy and International Affairs, he decided to apply to the Faculty of Communications, Media and Design to do a Bachelor’s in Advertising and Public Relations. Since the programme is taught in Russian, he will first study at HSE’s Preparatory Year to master the language.
We held our third Culture Café on October 11. It was hosted by HSE international students from South Korea. Thanks to Mingyu, Junsung, Sanghee, Yunji, Chaeeun, Esenia and Francis for this unique opportunity to imagine our Korea!
