Celebrating New Academic Year
On September 2, Russian-Armenian University celebrated the beginning of the new academic year and greeted its newest students. This year more than 600 new students have joined RAU.
The university's executives opened the ceremony with a congratulatory speech. RAU Rector Prof. Armen Darbinyan greeted everyone with words of welcome, "We are responsible for making this university as it is today - not only the professors and administration, but also students. From day one, the students are true participants in the process. So, take an active part in the university life, stay hungry for knowledge, be responsible and cooperative!".
As the tradition goes, the first-graders of 'Usmunk', the secondary school at Russian-Armenian University, also took the stage with a presentation. Following the official ceremony, the first-year students attended their first lecture read by Prof. Armen Darbinyan at the Grand Hall.
