The International PolyUnion Club is Open and Welcomes Guests
For sure, one of the most internationalized universities of the country must have its own international club. And Polytechnic University does have it: the SPbPU PolyUnion student club for Russian and international students was officially opened yesterday.
It is very easy to find: the club is located on the first floor of the #13 student dormitory at #30, Grazhdansky Ave. Just take left from the main entrance, and you will see the door you are looking for right away!
At the opening ceremony, Rector of SPbPU, Academician of RAS, A.I. RUDSKOY had himself tested out the design of the club and its multi-functionality. PolyUnion residents gave the rector a tour around the spacious premises of the club. The rector had pointed out that the club interiors were not only stylish but designed with a great sense: the soft sofas and comfortable tables could be easily moved around the hall, thus creating the space for communication and work of several groups at the same time. The cozy stage makes it possible to host musical concerts and fun events, while numerous tall chairs help accommodate several tens of viewers. In addition, the PolyUnion club has a kitchen: the residents promised that in the nearest future, they would hold here soirees dedicated to culinary traditions of various countries of the world. The SPbPU rector praised the students’ ideas and suggested to hold at the club a festive event in the honor of the 120th anniversary of Polytechnic University and promised to come over to it.
“This is your mutual home, the home of all students of Polytechnic University. And this is important. I cannot imagine life of our Polytechnic University without you, Russian and international students. I wish you every happiness in your new home! And I wish you all the success in the nearing examination session! Let the club turn into a center where new great ideas will emerge, where you would be able to solve your educational issues and just meet and discuss the matters essential for Polytechnic University students. Good luck!” the SPbPU rector wished.
To mark the official opening, rector RUDSKOY cut the green ribbon, after what the Polyhymnia Choir and SPbPU international students performed the Polytechnic anthem.
The President of an Angola Student Union Ivandru ROSA came to wish good luck to the students. He is a Polytechnic University student himself, and he wished the club members all the luck and pointed out that he himself was intending to hold meetings with Angola and other countries’ students at PolyUnion.
“The International PolyUnion Club is operating on the basis of the Higher School of International Educational Programs. We work in close cooperation with other Polytechnic youth structures, and we are sure that altogether we should be able to help even more international students adapt to living in Russia, find new friends, and achieve major successes in their academic activities,” the architect of the club P.S. NEDELKO commented.
