Entertainment and Social life
DSTU - a friendly, student-centred place to study
We believe that social life is one of the important parts of university life. DSTU is not only the place to study and research, but also to relax, to have fun, to make new friends and to grow personally. We organize various activities making our students’ social life diverse and intensive. Through regular socializing, students develop lifelong connections that pay off often long after leaving the classroom. That is why students’ off-class life is our special interest and care.
DSTU unions and communities represent the social and academic interests of our students and participate actively in the university governance. These organizations are students’ official voice on campus and are the focal point of student social life at our university. In addition to helping international students get settled during the first weeks, they arrange parties with live bands, run sport programmes, organize orchestras and theatre groups, arrange backpacking in the mountains.
Getting involved with your student union is a great way to meet friends and broaden your social circle, either through participating in activities or becoming involved in running the union itself.
