International cooperation association ‘iLaowai’. Its activity is to develop Russian-Chinese youth cooperation, to assist young Chinese students during their integration into the educational, social and cultural environment of the university.

"iLaowai" gives the chance to each student:

  • to enjoy communication with representatives of different cultures;
  • to improve knowledge of foreign languages;
  • to develop leadership and organizational skills;
  • to work in a team of soul mates.

Every meeting of the association is devoted to a special topic. Various events are organized for students: e.g, "Mid-Fall Festival", "Popular expressions and phrases" and others. Members of iLaowai participate in the World Nations festival where they represent their own countries.
