A traditional autumn camping weekend organized by the HSE Extreme Sports Club will take place on September 23 and 24. The event is open not only to HSE students and staff, but for backpacking lovers from other universities as well.
The Centre will include a swimming pool, a climbing wall, a gym, as well as dedicated space for basketball, tennis, badminton and other sports. The plan is to build the three-storey venue of almost 12,000 sq.m in under two years.
Organized by Extreme Sports Club HSE, HSE Camping Weekend is a great chance to spend two days out of the city, meet a large number of Russian students, and enjoy the beauty of the countryside. Sitting around the campfire and singing guitar songs together is something that will definitely give you warm memories for a long time.
Run √25, the first fun run organized by HSE, will take place on May 28 at Gorky Park. Our University is now 25 years old, and we’ll run 5 km together to celebrate this anniversary (or rather, our ‘anti-versary’) - along Pushkinskaya Naberezhnaya and Andreevskaya Naberezhnaya, from the Green Theatre to Luzhnetsky Bridge, and back again. Think of it as running from the darkness of ignorance, unbelievable stupidity, and bad grades as fast as we can!
Studies and work can only be effective if recreation is also organized properly. The HSE Extreme Sports Club has come up with several ideas on how to have an active and energetic rest in spring and summer.
On March 4, 2017, the winter sports HSE Snow Fest took place at the Kant alpine skiing centre. The event was organized by the Extreme Sports Club together with HSE student associations and received support from the Student Initiative Support Centre.
On March 4, from 12 p.m to 5 p.m. HSE students will gather at the Orion slope, at the Kant ski resort (metro Nagornaya), for friendly snowboarding and skiing competitions. This is one of the events organized to celebrate the 25th anniversary of HSE’s founding. Visitors will have the chance to try the best slope in the sports resort free of charge – and can either bring their own skiing or snowboarding equipment or rent it on site.
A great number of student associations and clubs at HSE involve students in a variety of activities from historical re-enactment to yachting. Fly HSE, a paragliding club, recently joined the list. The HSE News Service learned how you can get in, the time required to prepare, and whether you can fly in winter.
