Margarita pointed out that she was impressed by the size of the campus and several parks with ponds in there.

Semen was surprised by the stunning nature of China and Chinese cuisine.

Educational process and technical classrooms equipment were also of the high level. Students could attend courses without active participation or be actively engaged in educational process and obtain the certificates by the end of the program.

Students were glad having a volunteer, who could answer any question when it was necessary. The participants managed also to show their skills, introduce foreign students and professors to the Russian culture and find out about Chinese games and customs at special events for foreign students. All of this made it possible to achieve the main goal of the program: getting an invaluable experience of sharing international values. The Summer School activities have got a complete success and students would be happy to participate in such program one more time.
