November, 17 is traditionally celebrated all over the world as the International Students' Day. Here is Anatoly Voronin’s, our rector, address to all Petrozavodsk State University students.
Petrozavodsk State University takes forward position by “Internationalization” criterion in the National Russian Universities Ranking for many years. The students of PetrSU, not only from Karelia and Russia, but also from the CIS and the non-CIS like Kyrgyzstan, Finland, Sweden, Czech Republic, Serbia, China and many others, live as one big family with the name of Petrozavodsk State University. Together they make a big contribution in the university development by achieving great results in studies, scientific researches, winning in sport, intellectual contests, taking part in events promoting healthy lifestyle.
The student spirit is a real creative power, power of youth and ambitions, creative initiatives and fabulous projects!
PetrSU students are ambitious and creative young people, who take part in social, economic and cultural life of the university, the city and the republic. Our students successfully take part in conferences, Academic Olympics, seminars, contests, forums, festivals and championships. The students of PetrSU are also volunteering in social projects and various youth movements of Karelia and Russia.
We, the professors and the staff of Petrozavodsk State University, are proud of our students and wish them a lot of new ideas and discoveries.
Dare to make your student years not only an unforgettable but also an effective experience of your life. I wish you a new creative performance, professional success, excellent studies, strong health and family well-being! Be brave and ambitious, be active, take new challenges!
