As a welcome, this celebration also sends a message to the new generation of students from all over the world who are learning student life in Ho Chi Minh City.
There are hopes and suggestions that the Vietnamese Student Association of Ho Chi Minh City integrates through each activity and would like to share with you in the celebration just before the 7th Congress of the Vietnamese Student Association of Ho Chi Minh City (period 2023 – 2028) Is. Expected to happen in early November.
Experience, Connect and Challenge
After the shooting, about 3,000 young Ho Chi Minh City students took to the running track of the cross-country tournament, opening a new day for the series of activities of the Ho Chi Minh City New Student Festival 2023. Although most of them were students, there were still some sports lovers who signed up to run with us.
At the end of the 3km distance, she was sweating profusely, but Võ Oanh, a second-year pedagogy student, said she didn’t feel tired, even though she had rarely exercised before.
Ohn said that perhaps it was the hustle, excitement and youthful atmosphere of the tournament that helped Ohn put in effort every step of the way.
Don’t set any goals for yourself with this race, the only thing you tell yourself is to try to complete the entire registered distance.
This was an opportunity to help Onh practice and surpass himself, and completing it well also helped him receive the “Healthy Youth” certificate, leading to the upcoming “5-Good Students” title. Contributed to the opportunity to be considered.
In the other corner of the Student Cultural House location, the e-sports tournament (Valorous and Mobile Alliance) attracted a large number of followers. Not only boys, but many female gamers were also seen competing.
Hong Fuk (third year student) said that playing games is what relaxes her after studying in class.
Fuchs did not hide his goal of coming to this tournament to connect with more “gaming friends” and find compatible teammates.
“Although I’m new, I’m already familiar with a very strong team. I’m happy to be able to connect more with everyone, especially because I’m the only woman in the group so I’m always given priority according to my strengths To go to the champions,” Fuc Hao said excitedly.
At the festival, new students immerse themselves in Vietnamese cultural places, folk arts, experience some science and technology products… and have the opportunity to experience and discover many new things through each activity space.
Meet the diverse needs of students
Tran Thu Ha, president of the Ho Chi Minh City Vietnamese Student Association, shared that the New Student Festival has become an annual activity initiated by the association and the Ho Chi Minh City Student Cultural House since 2005.
Since it was first held, the Festival has striven to design the content and incorporate each activity in a way that enables new students to quickly integrate into the new environment of the university lecture hall and adapt to life in the city. Can get help. Most of you come from all provinces and cities across the country.
This year’s festival, in addition to the familiar activities, also features 10 entirely new programs and activities with the hope of meeting the diverse needs of students in the city.
Apart from the ongoing tournaments and club reunion nights, sports festivals, chess, student football, electronic sports tournaments and especially the folk culture experience space are the new features of the 2023 festival. Supporting teams, groups, scholarships for disadvantaged freshmen has become a tradition.
At the festival, new students also learn about and participate in some competitions related to their major.
Such as competition for potential tour guides, IELTS practice test, workshop “Digital Competence – Student’s stuff for the new era”.
These are considered important materials that the Festival hopes to share more perspective with the students, equipping them with digital skills and preparing themselves to meet the requirements of the current period of work.
Some students who participated in the festival activities said that they found rich content and many choices when they came here.
More importantly, not only did they have fun playing, they also learned many new things from experiencing the activities first-hand, especially technology exploration activities and using some new technology tools at the festival.
And this helps those who are away from home to gradually feel less surprised by the learning and living environment, even if they are coming to Ho Chi Minh City for the first time, and begin their onward journey to university. To have a fresh spirit and energy.
