PetrSU students are actively involved in sports
Students of the Institute of Forestry, Mining and Construction Sciences of PetrSU not only go in for sports themselves and win medals, but also actively participate in sports competitions on an urban, regional and even Russian scale.
Over the past semester, students of the Institute of Forest, Mining and Construction Sciences of PetrSU have been volunteers at three large-scale competitions that were held in Petrozavodsk.
More than 100 participants gathered the Karjalan vaara mountain trail , and without active volunteers it was difficult to hold the competition at the proper level: students installed markings on the track, issued numbers, controlled the participants’ well-being and the distance on the track itself.
Most recently the Karelian Championship in duathlon-cross took place (a combination of running and cross-country cycling, overcome in a continuous sequence). More than 10 students of the Institute of Forestry, Mining and Construction Sciences participated in the preparation of these competitions. The organizers noted the students of PetrSU for their activity, goodwill, readiness to stay on the track even beyond the designated time in the event of force majeure.
Traditionally, students of the Institute of Forestry, Mining and Construction Sciences help in organizing children’s swimming competitions among the commercial groups of the H2O pool. So, on May 22, students helped little swimmers not to confuse the time and number of their swim, supported them emotionally, helped the judges in summing up the results of the competition and rewarding.
Volunteering is a huge field for creativity. We chose sports volunteering – this is a story about emotions and friendship; it is an acquaintance with the most diverse, most interesting, most unusual people. This is an opportunity to see next to you the strength of character and the will to win; it is an opportunity to gain new knowledge and experience. And student years are the best time to participate in the volunteer movement,
– noted the students of the Institute of Forestry, Mining and Construction Sciences.
