Far Eastern Federal University

There are two universities in Vladivostok: Vlad State Uni of Economic and Service (where I am) and Far East Federal University (ДФГУ)

We decided to go see ДФГУ one day after classes. You just take a bus form one university to the other. But it is a long bus ride because the university is on an island.

Yup, you read that right.

On an island.

It was built to host the 2012 Asia Pacific Economic Conference, and the the Russian State "gave" it to ДФГУ.  The conference participants and volunteers were hosted there. FYI_ Russia also built the two bridges we drove over to get there, just for the conference.

But campus was a traditional American style campus- student center, dorms, cafes, gym, and I'm assuming classrooms, but I didn't actually see any.

We think their mascot is a dragon.

Ryan decided to have fun with angles...

We had lunch at one of the cafeterias, cheap, traditional Russian food.

We mainly just wandered around the campus looking at it and taking in fresh air.

See you around the globe!
