During the second part of the holiday, first-year students who came to study from other countries, cities and regions, have acquainted with the "Siberian Athens", its sights, memorable places, recreation parks and famous personalities who harmoniously entered their names in the history of Tomsk. The annual game "Tomsk Minibus" - a quest on Tomsk land helped guys to know our city. Having divided into teams, young representatives of all ten faculties of the university overcame routes from five stations, at each of which they performed creative, intellectual, and sports tasks. The first three teams that managed to outrun the rest received delicious and practical prizes. There were also awards for the most creative guys: pleasant gifts were presented to students who won in a special competition for the best team photo.

However, overcoming obstacles quickly and efficiently is not the main idea of the game. Its goal is to make friends with colleagues in the process of participation, to understand that the university is a large platform for useful and interesting communication, which is not limited to one building and one group. The students united thanks to a picnic organized in the park after the game, and a guitar concert from the students of TSPU and the city cover band Neorchestra.
