Congratulations of RUDN Rector and RUDN President on New Year 2022

Congratulations of RUDN Rector and RUDN President on New Year 2022

What is the New Year mostly associated with? I wouldn’t say it’s tangerines, or the legendary Russian Christmas movie watched every year. Neither it is the chimes or even a Christmas tree. New Year for all of us, no matter how old we are, is the expectation of a miracle. We grow and become wiser and often tell ourselves and each other that miracles do not happen, but every last week of the year at least once, admiring the dance of snowflakes in the light of lanterns, shining garlands, echoing crowded streets, we can feel something familiar since childhood — some kind of joyful anxiety: what if?


The last two years have turned out to be very challenging, and we had to look for new formats for organizing studies, work, and life itself.


We cannot return to zero and forget all the difficulties and losses. But we must learn to use the experience gained.


Dear colleagues, students, graduates,


I wish you miracles to happen in the New Year. And may there be more hand-made miracles rather than fairy tales, the more valuable these miracles will be. I wish you happiness, health, inspiration, warm hearts, strong wings and strength to be magicians for yourselves and your loved ones.

Oleg Yastrebov
Rector of RUDN University

Happy New Year 2022, dear RUDN students and colleagues!


I am grateful to everyone for the fact that the university lives. Every day we continue to discover the world despite the limitations. We have many friends and partners, we are strengthening our positions in international rankings, and we remain the greenest and friendliest university.


I wish you bright events, new heights, and ideas to be realized in the new year. May your hearts be filled with boundless kindness, your thoughts — with positive intentions, and your days — with happy meetings!


Stay healthy, believe in the best, give love and care to your loved ones. Reach unattainable goals, travel, don’t let circumstances stop you and seize opportunities!


Love life and our University!

Vladimir Filippov
President of RUDN University, Academician of the Russian Academy of Education, Chairman of the Higher Attestation Commission

Victoria Orlova, a student at RUDN Medical Institute: During four courses of study I have been thinking “Why is the profession of a nurse so underestimated?”

It is widely believed that a nurse is supposed to give and bring. But this is absolutely not true. My name is Victoria Orlova, I am a 4th year student of the Medical Institute of the Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia, majoring in “Nursing”.
