RUDN – it is one and only! Photos of the so awaited meeting ...
By a good tradition, the RUDN University’s birthday brought together everyone involved in its history. Once ordinary students, and today distinguished guests, congratulated their university on its anniversary.
Congratulations from statesmen - Valentina Matvienko, Chairman of the Council of the Federation of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, Chairman of the Supervisory Council of the Peoples' Friendship University of Russia, Valery Falkov, Minister of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation, Stefania Giannini, UNESCO Assistant Director General for Education were also voiced at the solemn part of the Gala Night.
“Today we are celebrating the anniversary of a unique University in the world. Already at the time of its creation, we laid such a progressive model of a classical-type university, that other universities both in Russia and other countries including Europe have been trying to achieve by uniting universities during the last 10-15 years. If in other countries they have been talking about internationalization and globalization only in the last 30 years, RUDN University was born like that!,” said RUDN University Rector Vladimir Filippov.
A gift for the audience was a festive concert from students and graduates of the university - on the main stage of the Kremlin Palace representatives of 102 countries sang Russian songs and performed fiery Indian and African motifs, sophisticated oriental melodies of China and Vietnam, and much more. Live broadcast of the concert was available on the RUDN University website.
