Tsinghua University Russian Students' Association was founded in October 2013 by a small group of students from all over Russia. Now, after a year and a half, our Association consists of about 50 people, and these include students not only from Russia, but also from countries where Russian is the most popular second language, such as Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, etc.
The Association's main goal is to create a convenient communication platform for Russian-speaking students at Tsinghua and help the newcomers to quickly adapt to the unfamiliar cultural environment. Our members take an active part in the student life of THU, every year we participate in the “Global Village” and the annual International Cultural festival, where we make a vivid presentation of Russian culture and traditions, which include national costumes, homemade cuisine, folk dances and songs.
Russian students also perform at such big events as the International Students' New Year's Gala Night, Tsinghua's Got Talent, Tsinghua Singing Competition, take part in international conferences, meetings, and various activities at the Russian Embassy and the Russian Cultural Centre.
Joining the Association is a great way to find new friends, have fun, and learn more about China and Tsinghua with the help of people who speak your own language.
