On 3 December 2010 the annual Intercultural Evening took place at RSU with more than 70 international students participating. The programme of the evening included all sorts of various activities, including forming of the Human Map, an Intercultural Quiz and culture presentation by Latvian folk group Laiksne.
Maecenas Mr Boriss Teterevs, the chairman of the Alumni Association of RSU Mr Romans Lācis and the rector of RSU Mr Jānis Gardovskis have signed an agreement of trust, which states the support for health care education in Latvia.
After the first tiresome study weeks everyone needs some time off, therefore, RSU international students went on a field trip to get to know Latvia a little bit better during Indian summer and to forget about their studies for a while. Arguably the best place to go to in September in Latvia is Sigulda, which lies just 50 km away from Rīga.
