50 countries — one ticket: RUDN University send guests of the “Planet South-West” festival on a journey
There are thousands of kilometers between these countries on the map, and one step on the RUDN University square. Each community has its own surprises for the guests.
Even guests from other countries attended the festival. Students from Belarus and Serbia came to the International Student Assembly. RUDN Student Council introduced the guests to the international family of the university.
“There are no such festivals in Serbia, so it is a pleasure for us to come to Moscow and visit Planet South-West. We are glad to have received the invitation. RUDN University is great, the organization is perfect. I remember Cuba the most - they are the funniest guys. The festival is a good opportunity for students to present their country, make friends with each other, learn about the cultural differences that exist between countries. I will be happy to come back again.”
“Planet Southwest is about scope, fun and something new. When we entered the gates of RUDN University, we fell into a different reality. Everything here is different from our university: you immediately meet guys from many countries of different nationalities, you hear many languages. RUDN is a whole city inside Moscow. And thanks to the event, which we were lucky to attend today, I learned a lot about countries, although I study at the Faculty of Geography.”
Moscow schoolchildren came to the festival in the frame of project “I have a foreign friend”.
“This is my first time at the festival and I know for sure that next year I will come again. RUDN University is very colorful, fun and warm. I especially remember students from Colombia — I am taking a bracelet and a soft toy for my younger sister with me as a keepsake. I liked the idea of the event, where you can meet people from a huge number of countries, and look at their culture. You will not get bored here — exhibitions, songs, dances, drumming and pleasant little things — souvenirs that remain in memory.”
