Our University has a reputation for achievements in culture and art. Great contributions are made by creative university teams that represent the University in competitions and festivals at different levels.

From the very beginning of studying at the University, students become involved in student life. Every year, first-year students get the opportunity to become members of various creative groups and student organizations.

Seniors invite first-year students to one of many social, sport, and creative activities. During the ceremony called “Students Initiation,” first-year students visit recreation centers and camps together with senior students. The informal atmosphere is the best way to adapt to University life.

At the beginning of October, the students meet at the Open SibSAU KVN League “Launch,” continuing the traditions of KVN. Students representing faculties are rivals only on stage; off-stage they are all friends. The SibSAU KVN League provides an opportunity to meet guests from other universities. It adds excitement to the game and a memorable experience for fans. Every step of the competition attracts a full hall of fans and gives smiles and joy to the audience. The students represent the University in local, territorial, and All-Russia competitions. The SibSAU KVN team “Malina” is the champion of the Central Krasnodar League and has been a three-time finalist in the KVN Premier League.

SibSAU students always look forward to their favorite beauty competition “Miss University.” In addition to impeccable appearance, the participants represent their deep knowledge in the creative spheres: choreographic training, mastery of acting, stupendous costumes, spectacular special effects, and breathtaking performances.

Every event is accompanied by SibSAU dance groups. The group “Hope” is the laureate of the “Student Autumn” competition (art director - Tatyana Permina); the International Modern Dance competition “Aysedora”, winners of the All-Russia Festival “Terpsichore” and laureates of the All-Russia Festival “Star Rain” and International Dance Festival. In 2009, the choreographic group “Ad astra” (art directors - Vyacheslav Sinitsyn and Tatyana Egorova) was awarded the “National Dancing Group.” They also were winners of the World Dance Contest in 2007 in the category “Step”, winners of the international contest “Spring in USTU - 2009”, the laureates of the International Festival “Students’ Spring.” In addition, they have gained the respect and affection of their audiences. They are laureates of festivals of modern choreography and plastique organized within the Interuniversity Students’ Festivals “Spring in USTU” (2000 - 2005), laureates of the All-Russia Festival of choreographic groups (Rostov-on-Don, 2004), and Russian choreographic festivals in Krasnoyarsk and Saint-Petersburg (2000 - 2009). The Dance Group “Anartes” (art director Dmitry Sitsukov) was named after the brightest star in the constellation Scorpion. For the past four years, they have represented SibSAU at the Governor’s Ball. They are the vice-champions of “IQ-ball 2008” (2nd place) and winners of “Students’ Autumn”.

Annually the Students’ Union organizes the promotional race “Prometheus.” The students ski all over the districts of the Krasnoyarsk Region and organize meetings with school students. They tell them about the University and entertain them with performances.
