The Annual Events of Can Tho University of
Medicine and Pharmacy students
Students of Can Tho University of Medicine and Pharmacy (CTUMP) organize a great diversity of activities every year. We believe it is vital to maintain a vigorous, interesting student life by way of making and participating in many activities. Our annual events range from physical, musical and mental competition to traditional festivals at our university, for our students. All of these activities are hosted and ran by CTUMP students. During the process, our students learn a great deal of social skills and take a break from the stress of our studies.
1. Hội trại 26/3 (Youth Camp, March 26th)
This is a special event to celebrate the foundation date of Viet Nam’s youth organization, Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union. With help from the Youth Union of the University and the Office of Student Affairs, CTUMP-ers enjoy the day with organized competitive traditional sports, large scale flashmob performance and a musical night with repertoire from university clubs and many associated units of Vietnamese Students’ Association from different provinces.
Every two years, the Youth Camp would expand to include overnight camping for all willing students. During this festive event, a bonfire would be lit and burn late into the night, students may take part in musical celebrations around the fire. This part of the Youth Camp is very well-liked by all students of Can Tho University of Medicine and Pharmacy.
2. Annual Grand Musical Performance of the University/Faculties
The Annual Grand Musical Performance is an honor event orchestrated by the University or respective Faculty. Featuring performances from student classes, sometimes joint shows of multiple classes’ cooperative efforts, these Musical Performances are always something to look forward to. Students volunteer to take time off outside of class to train together for their performances, many of which reach near the flawless quality. The best of shows, nominated by a University or Faculty-selected council of professors, win their student classes great honor and rewards.
