Happy birthday to a Vietnamese student from dormitory 13
When you turn 22 years old on a Saturday summer day, and you are closed for observation in a foreign country, “you must know that you are not alone!” With this in mind, students and teachers of the Graduate School of Media Communications and Public Relations of the SPbPU Institute of Humanities decided to congratulate a 22-year student from Vietnam Nguyen Thi Thui Hang on her birthday.
For over ten days, by order of Rospotrebnadzor, a Vietnamese student has stayed under medical supervision in isolation in dormitory No. 13 along with other foreign students. Polytechnic University has taken all precautions to prevent the spread of infection and provide health and safety to students. The scope of these tasks includes providing all necessary means for disinfection, personal protection and sanitary cleaning. Also, by decision of the rector of St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, students were provided with additional financial assistance, and volunteers deliver food and essential goods. In other words, all possible forms of assistance, i.e., medical, financial, humanitarian, volunteer support are organized for foreign students.
The Humanitarian Institute congratulated its student from Vietnam: “An atmosphere of joy and positive emotions are of no less importance for the psychological health of our students,” said the acting Director of the HSMC&PR Marina ARKANNIKOVA. “The mission of the university is to help them overcome all the difficulties of social isolation, especially now, during the session, when their emotional stresses have additionally increased.” Gifts, touching greetings from teachers in Vietnamese, balloons and flowers: such details complementing the holiday atmosphere like nothing else were prepared for Nguyen, as well as nice food, medical masks, and antiseptics - a traditional quarantine set of these days.
“It is symbolic that the sweet gift for Nguyen was created by the professional hands of the graduate of our Higher School Alla Kalakauskas, who not only is now a qualified PR specialist, but also the owner of a successful confectionery brand,” added Marina ARKANNIKOVA. Words of gratitude from foreign students to the native university did not take long: “Dear Chair, we would like to express our sincere appreciation and gratitude for the attention, responsiveness and, importantly, the assistance provided to us. This made us confident that they had not forgotten about us. And it assured our parents that they can feel secure about their children. Therefore, we don’t even know what words to choose, we are all in a slight confusion. Thanks again for your support! ”.
