Faculties welcome students with lively programs

Many faculties have organized “Zero-VND markets”, selling food and drinks made by upper-class students. On the main stage, the scholarship program for students is an indispensable part of the meeting.

Specialties from the upperclassmen are sent to the new students as a warmest welcome.
