Student Life:

Forming and nurturing tolerance among schoolchildren and youth is the most important strategic direction of modern education.The university has forged an International Club to promote harmony and peace among the students and learn to appreciate customs and traditions of other cultures at the same time providing a forum to the students to freely express their thoughts, views and share queries with each other. The International Club has been active in “the MGSU Planet” and, by the way, is very popular among the students, freshmen or MISI-MSSU graduates. 

This friendly planet of fun is inhabited with the future builders, high school students of the Moscow schools and students of many other universities of Russia as well. They are here for international meetings, evenings of friendship, days of acquaintance with other countries, presentations, celebrations of national holidays and other important events of social and cultural life.
