On the 6th of March, a winter sports meeting for the foreign students was held at the sanatorium complex “Univer” of Sumy State University. The event was organized jointly by the Department of International Education and the Department of Physical Education of SSU. 

Students from Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya took part in the individual and team competitions in skiing, sledding, and volleyball on the snow. According to the deputy vice-rector for sports work with the foreign students Roman Halenin, the Spartakiade has been held for the first time, but such competitions are going to be a good tradition of the university.

The winners of the Spartakiade received awards and prizes from the organizers.

The Independence Day of the Republic of Ghana was celebrated on the sidelines of the Spartakiade. The students prepared traditional foods and told about the cultural customs of their country.

According to Vice-Director of the Department of International Education for pedagogical work and humanitarian affairs of SSU Yuliia Katz, foreign students, studying in Ukraine, are acutely affected by the unusual climatic zone, especially during the first year. It is especially hard to be comfortable with Ukrainian cold winter and a lack of sunny days in the autumn-winter period for students from African countries and Southeast Asia. Such events help international students to adapt quickly and well to life in Ukraine.
