HSE Day is a Tradition

On September 10, the Higher School of Economics is again welcoming guests at Moscow’s liveliest and most exciting location – Gorky Park! HSE Day was first celebrated in Moscow in 2012, the university’s 20th anniversary, and has since become a tradition of citywide proportions. Thousands of people meet in Gorky Park on this day to participate in this extraordinary university celebration. The Higher School of Economics is a university open to the city, which is why Muscovites and everyone in the capital at this time will have the unique opportunity to get a glimpse of life at the university outside of its walls and also to take part in various themed events. Not a single Moscow university can pride itself on such an extensive list of entertaining cultural activities! A rich programme has been  prepared for HSE Day 2014 that has something to spark anybody’s interest. Tents will be set up around the park with representatives from all faculties of the Higher School of Economics, and attendees will have the chance to meet some of Russia’s leading academics and politicians. It will also be possible to talk with university instructors in an informal setting and even go for a stroll along the Moskva River embankment with the university’s rector. The new format of the educational portion will include master classes given by HSE alumni where the most successful and ambitious graduates will share the secrets to building a career and conducting business. In addition, anyone interested in sports and athletics can go straight to HSE Land to take part in a dance off, play Frisbee or skateboard.

This celebration is an excellent opportunity for everyone not only to walk around and have fun, but to become part of the HSE family as well!
