Friendship House opens at Lobachevsky University
On January 25, a new space called "The Friendship and Cultural Diversity House of UNN Students" was opened on the campus of Lobachevsky University. This unique student club will become a platform for cross-cultural dialogue, socialisation and adaptation of international students at Lobachevsky University.
"We are all well aware that the university is, of course, focused on education and science. It all occurs in a constant social interaction. We very much appreciate that students from more than 100 countries of the world study here. It is very symbolic that we are opening this space on Russian Student Day. From now on, step by step, we will build a large international university", – said Vice Rector for International Affairs Alexander Bedny.
The Friendship House plans to organize various cultural events. However, first and foremost, the new club is a platform for daily direct communication between students, for establishing friendly contacts. Meetings at the Friendship House will help to develop intercultural communication at the university.
"I wish you to implement new joint projects here, to become a good example for international students from other universities, a point of attraction for active young people. Lobachevsky University should be such a center of attraction", – said UNN Rector Elena Zagaynova.
