Nigerian Ternopil State Medical University students were enthusiastically involved in organization of the event. As Donald Odion, the president of the Association of Nigerian Students of TSMU, said, his biggest dream was to have a joint celebration. “Previously, every nationality held a separate event, but we are all – one country. We need to continue the tradition of common parties to get to know each other better and feel united “, – said our student.
