Founded in 1907
On September 4th at Plekhanov Russian University of Economics a ceremony of "Welcome Day" was organized for the students who came for exchange programs at the University this fall.
Core group of the student union "Buddy system" warmly welcomed newly-arrived students. In the official part of the Day the guests watched a Russian folk dance presented by the dance ensemble "Gelicon" and also listened to a song performed by Svetlana Povaritsyna, a PRUE student. Further, students took part in entertaining competitions and quests that allowed them to express themselves from their intellectual side, sportsmanship and team spirit.
On the morrow of the entertaining part of the ceremony program the team-winners got awards. For refreshments students were offered with stuffed buns and curd patties. The student union presented a short-film about "Buddy system" for the guests.
Students gladly shared their opinion on the University, told about their impressions and further expectations of their study at PRUE. "Your University screams "knowledge!" - said Ashton, who arrived from Sweden. "I like how it is all organized here, - added Madlene from Austria, - There are so many buildings where everybody sticks together for study. I hope to join many courses and listen to professionals in the field of education!" Jan Egbert, the Netherlands, supported her opinion:"At Plekhanov University I expect to broaden my mind as it apparently carries great knowledge inside".
