The Student's Day
On 25 January, on the Student's Day, it is customary at RUDN University to butter up the Learned Cat, which lives in the library of the main building. This is a bronze sculpture that has become a symbol of a successful exam period. Students treat the cat with sour cream and sweets, scratch behind its ear and rub its nose. Thus they thank the cat for the good marks at the exams. Contests, creative performances, quests are organized on this day. In the evening the Interclub usually organizes dances with hearty gatherings.
