On October 11-12, the HSE University - St Petersburg campus hosted the first ever international Kochubey Readings, devoted to the study of private collections in Russia and around the world. The conference took place under the patronage of the Kochubey family, members of which travelled to Russia from France, Belgium, and the U.S.
Last week at HSE University – St. Petersburg turned out to be really eventful. First of all, we finally met our international freshmen, or at least most of them. The orientation sessions, followed by the Common Arrival Days, offered a chance to get acquainted with people, resources and processes. Secondly, we celebrated HSE SPb Day devoted to the anniversary of the campus – it has turned twenty this year! During these years we have been dreaming about many things, but who doesn’t when they are young.
Nothing like this has happened before with everyone at HSE St. Petersburg – students, graduates, professors, and prospective students – all gathered together in one place!What is a university? Yes, it’s classes, tests, and a degree. But it’s also new friends, feelings, shared experiences and moments of joy. And of course, it’s our great traditions, which HSE Fest Day will become!
