Two times a year – at Christmas and Easter – balls with live music and evening dresses are organized in Ventspils University College and they are the most attended events – not only students attend them but also their friends and graduates.
In 2006 the Christmas ball for the first time was opened by an impressive event “VUC Award of the Year” that has become a tradition – at the end of every year there are awards given in the following nominations: Student of the Year, Lecturer of the Year, Event of the Year, Student – Merrymaker, Mess of the Year and Freshman of the Year. All students, employees and administration of the university college are welcomed to attend the awarding ceremony that takes place just before the ball in order to follow the ceremony and enjoy students’ performances – vocal, dance and theatre sports. After the ceremony everyone is invited to the ball during which there is live music, dances and various activities are being organized. Also at Easter every year there is a ball with refreshments and live music to enjoy the feeling of upcoming holidays.
More often than balls, approximately once a month, the Students Council organizes various thematic parties that usually take place in the KISS Club. During the autumn semester these are the 1st September Party for first year students to get to know each other, Freshmen Party, Halloween Party and other. During the spring semester there are Valentine’s Day Party, Mafia Party, and Fun Sports Games after-party.
