The volunteer organization TSU-Online assists international students to adapt to university social and cultural life, with the help of Russian and international student volunteers.
The creative life of an organization with a new lifestyle has not disappeared either: volunteers help and come up with new projects. Now the whole team is discussing a plan of events in a remote format for international students who by September will not be able to return to Tomsk.
The launch of psychological assistance in a foreign language is expected, as it is widely available so far only for Russian-speaking students. The project is being developed with Azamat Nayman, head of the TSU Psychological Service, and will be open to all international students.
The last topic of the online meeting with students was the “Country Presentation” project - on May 17, students viewed the culture and traditions of Mexico and Zimbabwe. In full-time format, this would have been with national dances, music, and dishes, but in the remote format, it was with a presentation about national traditions and students performing national songs.
About 500 people will remain in the Sail (Parus) dormitory for the summer. These are TSU students and students of the Pre-courses Department entering undergraduate and specialty programs.
