RUDN Rector Vladimir Filippov: “Today we are actively engaged in attracting talented and capable children: in 40 countries of the world we have opened specialized classes, and in 2 years there will be 70 countries all in all. Preparatory faculties, Russian language centers, Olympiads - it all helps to find gifted schoolchildren and unleash their potential. The University has intensive programs for good students - for example, the International Academic Incubator of the Medical Institute selects the best students after the 3rd year and gives them an enhanced program involving leading experts. We are planning to increase the number of such projects. ”
Academician Andrei Adrianov, Vice-President of the Russian Academy of Sciences congratulated the students on their “professional” holiday and wished to strive for new heights and not be afraid to meet new challenges: “Success is not only career and material benefits. First of all, it is an opportunity to do what you like, which gives inner comfort and at the same time solves some global tasks. You, young and educated, have a great power that can change the world for the better.”
The culmination of the evening was the drawing of the car - Lada Vesta. 19 A-students competed for the prize. The car went to a student of RUDN Law Institute - Elina Urazova.
“A couple of years ago, when I had had only 2 semesters with excellent grades, I was sitting at the same meeting of excellent students and saw the winner getting the car keys, and I thought that one day I could be in his place. Now I'm standing on the stage holding the very keys. Dreams Come True! I am happy! ”- Elina said.
