Student life in KhAI is interesting and rich - there are students' scientific circles, Club of the Funny and Inventive, amateur performances, summer camp for students.

Warm-ups, played by this team, on the same poll, give way only to the warm-up with the audience at international meetings. These Kharkiv locals are famous for their absolutely indeterminate and at the same time extremely bright image, made up of "white jackets", "rock-n-roll" and permanent heroes of "ruler".Read more
