There was no free room in the hall of this faculty. The freshmen, inspired with Alma Mater spirit were waiting for the faculty representatives. The welcoming speech was made by the Dean Gourgen Melikyan, who called them to keep high the name of Alma Mater, and the most important to study well.
I am glad that the RA authorities realize the importance and strategic meaning of this branch of science in the area of our country development. So, You must also realize the level of responsibility and must meet the expectations. Good luck to You, dear students, - said Mr. Melikyan.
The extraordinary and plenipotentiary ambassador of Armenia to Italy, graduate of YSU Faculty of Oriental Studies Ruben Karapetyan had also come to welcome the freshmen.
First, Mr. Ambassador ensured the students that YSU is the HEI where it has always been of great honor to study and this faculty has always been one of the leaders. This faculty is some kind of a family for me where I have learnt a lot. I do contact with Alma Mater now, too and will do so always. I have got here everything I can never get from any other place.
Mr. Karapetyan advised our students first to do something for the motherland and then only to demand. If each of us feels responsible for the welfare of our country, city, HEI or just faculty, there is no doubt, the positive results are expected. Our country needs good specialists and citizens for our development. In Alma Mater You are provide with all the opportunities to become both good specialist and man. You have just no to miss the chance.
The traditional surprise was distributed among our students, too. The initiative belonged to YSU Public Relations and Information Administration. It is The Freshmen Guide, which contains the necessary information about YSU structures. A special CD was issued on credit system and Bologna Process, as well as a special questionnaire.
