Buddy Club VSU is aimed at developing cultural exchanges between Russian students and international students who come to VSU on student's exchange programmes. One of the major goals of Buddy Club’s volunteers is to help foreign students adapt to a new social and cultural environment. All international students are supervised by curators who help them solve various everyday problems and provide social guidance.

Our club provides students with the opportunity to communicate with people from all over the world. Every semester, VSU welcomes students from France, the USA, the UK, Germany, Spain, China, and other countries. By helping them, Voronezh students get a great opportunity to practice foreign languages. The organisers of Buddy Club hold themed cinema club sessions, cooking master classes, guided tours, and parties during which they try to break popular stereotypes about Russia and to contribute to the favourable vision of our country.

Student Festivals

the Initiation Ceremony held in autumn by all 18 Faculties;
the "First-year Student" annual festival – a competition between faculties, where new students show their talents;
the "Students' Spring" annual festival – a competition between faculties, in which any VSU student can take part.

The VSU students also take part in the "Students' Spring in the Voronezh Region" festival. At the last two festivals our team won grand prizes for over half the nominations.

Since 2012 our students have been taking part in the festival "Russian Students' Spring", and have won special prizes.

In May 2014 the organising committee of the "Russian Students' Spring" festival gave an award to the rector Dmitry Yendovitsky for promoting students' activities and supporting youth social initiatives.

VII Festival of the Russian Language for International Students in Russia

On the 22–26th April, 2014, the VII Festival of the Russian Language for International Students in Russia took place. It was organized by the VSU International Education Institute with help from the Russky Mir Foundation and the Russian Association of Teachers of the Russian Language and Literature (ROPRYAL). The Festival is an event of national significance. It helps Russia to establish and develop cultural dialogue with other countries.

The Opening Ceremony was held on the 22nd of April at VSU Concert Hall. During the ceremony all the participants made presentations of their universities and cites. In the following three days, the contestants demonstrated their knowledge of the Russian language. The results were announced at the closing concert with performances from the winners, and various artistic teams of Voronezh.

Let Us All Join Hands

On 3rd December, 2014, a gala concert of the international song and dance festival “Let Us All Join Hands” took place in the Voronezh circus building. This was the 11th event organized by the VSU Institute of International Education in collaboration with the City Department of Culture, and held under the motto “For international understanding, against racism and violence”.

This year, the Festival brought together over six hundred participants – international students from Voronezh universities, the representatives of national diasporas, and performing groups from all over the country, with a repertoire of various international songs and dances.

During the first two rounds, the participants presented over one hundred and fifty performances to the panel of judges. On top of that, exhibitions of decorative and applied artworks took place in local study centres, tourist companies, and language schools, as part of the Festival.

The traditional gala concert featuring a diverse programme included the best performances and became a bright and impressive conclusion to the Festival. The national songs and dances of various countries presented by solo performers and bands won over the audience with their amazing sincerity and ingenuity.

We are really proud of our students. We are happy for them when they reach their goals.
