UrFU volunteers travel to Kazan to prepare for World Student Summer Games

A delegation of 200 Ural Federal University student volunteers recently traveled to Kazan with Universiade to help prepare for the World Student Summer Games.

The volunteers will spend nearly one month in Kazan working with local companies on logistical issues in venue preparation, media relations, tourist and guest relations and language services, related to the 27th World Summer Universiade games.

This year's games will gather more than 5,000 student athletes from 174 countries to compete in 27 different athletic events. UrFU's delegation of volunteers represent a small portion of the near 20,000 total volunteers for the event.
