Сulture Café: Money for Good

Once a semester we make something unusual! Our simple (but very dear to heart) Culture Café turns into a strong discussion not about one or several countries and their beautiful unique cultures, but about the issues that can be shared by massive number of people, by the whole globe.


Culture Café: Ukraine, Belarus and Bulgaria

April 4, 2018 – what happened on this day, and why did we decide to mention it here?
You guessed it – our latest Culture Café. This one was a little unusual. We had 3 countries in one go! Ukraine, Belarus and Bulgaria – 3 trips, 3 amazing countries, so different but so similar. We want to thank all the students who took part in creating such awesome presentations about their countries: Anastasia Ozerova (Ukraine), Anna Baranova (Belarus), Adrian Stefanov, Kristina Todorova and Margaret Alexandrova (Bulgaria).

Culture Café: France

Bienvenue en France! We are glad to present you an article which is related to our Culture Café: France, held on the 21st of March. But firstly, we would like to thank our dear students Valentin Maillet and Camille Cros who perfectly prepared their presentation and managed to capture our hearts by telling about this romantic and charming country - France.

Culture Café: Vietnam

What is the first association that appears in your mind when you hear “Vietnam”? Probably, you will say something like “Oh, it’s the country where that war took place”. Of course, this horrifying war actually happened there with a lot of terrible consequences as a result, but Vietnam is such a fantastic country with overwhelming landscapes and rich culture that everyone should know more about it.
Thanks to Giang Dinh, Khanh Huyen, Ngoc Quynh and Kieu Mi, we managed to dispel some myths and break some stereotypes related to Vietnam!

Culture Café: Italy

Tiramisù, pasta, alla bolognese, and pizza. Guess you all have thoughts about Italy, and you are right!
Our Culture Café: Italy held on the 21st of February was attended by many international students who created an amazing atmosphere, so we dived into Italian culture more than we could even imagine. The presentation was prepared by HSE Exchange Students: Nicola Calvano, Nicola Simone, Michela Montagna, Martina Zama, Sofia Bineri, Gianmarco Donolato, Fabiola Furnari, Luca Bazzoni, Francesca Miuli, Federica Toninello, Serena Barone, and Olivia Genovesi. We are so thankful to you!

Culture Café: Georgia

Why did we gather so many students after exhaustive, sometimes boring classes in one place? Culture Café: Georgia, held on the 7th of February, without a doubt was the most attended CC (ESN HSE Moscow hopes that this fact will inspire other students to present their countries as well). It was prepared by HSE exchange student Beso Shengelia and his Georgian friends. They did everything possible to show the beauty of this fantastic ancient country, Georgia! What is more, we are grateful to HSE students especially from the Chamber of Nationalities, specifically Maggie Sulkhanishvili, for taking part in our event.

HSE Vietnamese Students Celebrating Lunar New Year 'Tet'

The Lunar New Year, or Tet holiday, is the most important and largest festival of the year in Vietnam. It is when the Vietnamese express their respects for their ancestors and welcome the lunar New Year with family members. The date of Tet is decided by the lunar calendar; this year, it began on Friday, February 16, and lasts until next weekend. 2018 is known as the year of the Golden Dog.

Culture Café: Russia

New semester, new life, and new season of our popular Culture Cafés have come! The first ‘brand new’ Culture Café was held on the 24 th of January and was prepared by ESN HSE Moscow students with a great love. As you may have conjectured already, it was devoted to charming and mysterious RUSSIA!

‘A New and Exciting Experience’

The traditional dip into icy water on the celebration of Jesus’ Baptism united brave HSE international students on January 18th for the third time.  The event was organised by ESN HSE. Two words sum up their impressions – ‘unique’ and ‘delightful’. The event took place at VDNKH where organizers arranged all the necessary services, including hot tea, a tent and medical assistance – which, luckily, wasn’t needed.

All Cultures Day at the School of Psychology
