Greeting the new academic year together with the Ural Federal University

The 2023 FISU World University Games will be present at “The First Day at Ural Federal” freshmen festival. The event will take place on September 4 at the square in front of the university’s main building.

This festival for freshmen and students is an annual tradition at UrFU. It helps students find out more about the sport, creative, scientific, international, and public university’s activities.

The 2023 FISU World University Games interactive zone will be open at the festival between 16:00 and 22:00. Guests will find out more about the preparations for the Games in Ekaterinburg, their history, and prospects. Anyone willing can test their knowledge and intuition in quizzes or try themselves in translation battles and musical competitions. Helping with that will be the Games mascots – Yaggi, Heaty, and Cedry.

The Games volunteer program will be represented at the festival as well. Students will find out about the most interesting functional areas and the opportunities that will open to volunteers. Besides that, they will get to know how to apply and successfully pass the selection.

At the end of the festival, freshmen will be invited to pass their first set of final exams and have a chance to win prizes with the 2023 FISU World University Games symbols.
