For students

The Rīga Stradiņš University International Students’ Association (RSU ISA) was founded in 2011 by a group of international students and is this year celebrating its 8th anniversary. As a part of the anniversary celebrations RSU ISA organised an entire week of celebrations from 14 to 18 October 2019. This anniversary was dedicated to the extraordinary contribution that the association’s members and supporters have made, and to those who have committed themselves to improving student life for the past eight years.

The week started off with a competition on Instagram where students had to answer questions about the ISA, continuing with a screening of Joseph Sargent’s Something the Lord Made on Wednesday, and a treasure hunt on Thursday. The celebrations culminated on Friday with a party in the RSU Cafeteria. 

Approximately 200 students participated in the various events, and the overall response was very positive. The winners of the treasure hunt and the Instagram competition were announced during the party on Friday, and walked away with tickets to the RSU ISA’s Christmas Ball, Glowing Globe, at the House of Blackheads, RSU T-shirts, bottles, mugs and a discount voucher for the restaurant Stock Pot! 

About 75 students joined in the celebrations on Friday popping champagne and partaking in delicious food and cake. People shared fond memories of ISA and enjoyed two musical performances. An award ceremony was also held to announce the results of an RSU student survey. 

  • Best teacher 2019 - Mrs. Evita Saukane
  • Best lecturer 2019 - Asst. Prof. Maija Rumaka

The organisers of the event, the ISA Board, were very happy with the whole week and hope to establish this as a tradition at RSU.
