Falling in love in five minutes? It’s possible! HSE Day is an excellent opportunity for two lonely hearts to find one another! Speed dating is a modern way to get to know someone quickly and ask them any question in a tête-à-tête. Come to Love HSE and take part in fun competitions, listen to great music, and maybe, meet the love of your life! Or just make some great friends along the way.
14:00 — 19:00 Unimafia
Unimafia is a modified version of the super popular game Mafia. The rules are simple: players are given the role of university residents who can facilitate or hinder learning. The players then try to determine who is who. The winner is whoever gets through all the classes, passes all exams and becomes a proud graduate of the university! The game will include a round in English so that foreign students can also participate.
14:00 — 19:00 Ethnic Corner
A real creativity zone! You’ll definitely find something to occupy your hands and mind here – brain games, riddles, puzzles, hands-on activities, henna designs (mehndi), bracelet weaving, and needlework. In a special lounge zone, you will be able to kick back, relax, and listen to the rhythm of drums.
14:00 — 19:00 Exhibition
HSE Art Studio invites you to an exhibition organised by studio director Lusine Sapondjan to introduce talented young artists from the university. On the theme HSE Buildings, students made paintings of the famous architectural monuments where they study. Their work, prepared especially for this year’s HSE Day, will be on show in the open air.

This is one of the celebration’s most popular events and allows participants to battle it out in verse.
