students are the future of Russia! Join us!
students! The last school waltz has just sounded, the last bell has just rung.
The childhood that we wanted to come to an end has gone away. What feelings do
you have now? The same ones that we also had one day… And you are feeling some
perplexity – an already inexplicable nostalgia for school, friends, and
teachers. And some anxiety – how will relations with new friends and teachers
be formed? And, of course, you are excited about the choice of a profession. It
is good when there are family traditions, when capabilities come to light early.
It is good when you know exactly where to go to study and want you want to
become. But what if you haven't made a choice yet?
Are you thinking about the prestige value of a profession? Or are you
going to the institute as it were for company? You know better than I that such
cases are numerous. Have a look at our Academy. We teach here many interesting
professions, and at a very high level. And if you stop to look at one or another
of our departments, I am sure you won't regret your choice.
I want to talk with
you heart-to-heart about something
And I want you to understand me. They say there is a generation gap. But it
appears to me that this is
an artificial problem,
something made-up. Tell me, what father
give his child bad or
advice?! Quite simply,
we've lived more and
seen more. And we have fewer illusions…
call you "back – to the future!" Your
and school years occurred
years of transition
when values and
many good and beautiful things were
brushed away. In our rush
to overtake or outrun the West,
forgotten the simple truth:
"No man is a prophet
in his own country!" And
already ten years have passed…
Now it's time
to look back
and think – was everything bad in our country?
Weren't we strong? Didn't
we have progressive science, scientists with worldwide
famous achievements; didn't we have excellent classical education; didn't we
have teachers who gave their all
children?! And isn't collectivism, which some generations lived
a good word? Our country survived a
terrible war in many respects thanks to collectivism,
when the mighty didn't destroy the weak, when everybody shared the last piece of bread, when the words "charity and
mercy" were understandable to everyone. Ask
your parent, grandfather or grandmother. They will surely answer you: "Yes,
that's just how we
lived." A wise man
said: "The past is a lamp that illuminates the way to the future for us."
So let's turn to the past, take from
beautiful and rush
to the future with it.
And the future of
Russia is beautiful! And you are the future of Russia!
eleven years to our Academy. My memories
are sufficient for a whole book. We have
government accreditation, opened many of
most interesting and popular specializations in the labor
market, introduced new
courses of training, opened affiliates of the Academy throughout
and, above all, arranged for a quality
I think that our Academy is one of few institutions of higher learning
attention is paid to the
of knowledge. We value our diploma and
our reputation. Especially because the Ministry of Education of Russia has
the third place among non-state accredited institutions of higher education.
This is our triumph!
Now we must work to
become even better.
eleven years of coming
Academy, I cannot
what kind of people our graduates will be. As
specialists they will be excellent, but what
kind of people will they be? What
will they think about their country, will they love their Motherland as
we, the older
generation, love it? Will
they give their knowledge for the
will they increase its wealth, will they remember the
great wisdom of their ancestors?
Do you know what the great
Russian scientist Dmitry Ivanovitch Mendeleev dreamt of?
Read his "Sacred Thoughts" and you will find there some
lines. The great thinker and scientist dreamt of
"enrichment of the nation, the
prosperity and moral power
I want the
graduates of our Academy to
become excellent specialists, to
their Motherland and
its economic and moral power.
