To celebrate the occasion the Students’ Union and the staff of WIUT organized Hashar, a spring clean-up, in Bolajon Park neighboring the University. Students and staff members joined hands and worked voluntarily for the community’s well-being.
The program of the day was followed by a colorful, culturally rich open-air folk music and dance festival. Customary karnay and sunray opened the event and a number of traditional dance and vocal performances were made by students. The winner of the Eco-projects Contest recently held at the University was also announced at the event. The author of the project was awarded a bicycle.
The winner of the Eco project is Kozim Isroiljonov for the project called "Motion sensors".
Following the entertainment part of the program, everyone was invited to enjoy the delicious traditional sumalak and festive pilav.
