International students wish Polytech a Happy New Year
International students of Polytechnic university celebrated the New Year and made a traditional video with New Year greetings. A merry party was held at the PolyUnion International Student Club, which was attended by participants from all over the world. They summed up the results of the past year, made Christmas decorations, folded origami, painted gingerbread with icing and answered questions in a quiz on the holiday traditions and customs in different countries.
The end of the year is the time to take stock and make new plans. TutorForces and PolyUnion teams shared with the audience the results of their activities. City tours, language and book clubs, movie nights, festivals and city events - these and other activities were organized throughout the year to help students from different countries adapt, experience the diversity of traditions and cultures and make new friends.
Among the events held by TutorForces and PolyUnion members with the support of International office of SPbPU is the recording of the annual video greeting for the coming New Year. Traditionally, students from all over the world take part in it. This year, participants from Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Turkey, Tunisia, India, Afghanistan, Zambia, Nigeria, Russia, and other countries joined the filming. The participants wished the audience to be as ambitious as Peter the Great, strive for knowledge as SPbPU scientists, work on new projects as researchers at Technopolis Polytech Research Building and discover new talents as the creative teams of the university. And successes in the new year should be at least as high as the famous hydro-tower - this was also the wish voiced in the video.
