An outdoor reception was held in the evening of 18th September.
This year, over 13,500 young people joined the ranks of KFU students, among them 3,000 foreign nationals. Many of them, of course, found their new home at the Universiade Village, one of the largest dorm campuses in Russia.
Rector Ilshat Gafurov greeted them, “I want to say hello to you and congratulate our freshmen on becoming students of Kazan Federal University. You’ve made a long way to prepare for the exams, and then you succeeded at them. I wish you luck! Be proud to be a student of Kazan Federal University.”
Former Mayor of the Universiade Village and current Minister of the Economy of Tatarstan Farid Abdulganiev said, “Years will pass, and you’ll proudly remember the time spent at Kazan University. Cherish this time and abide by the rules of the Universiade Village.”
Among the announcements made during the evening, there was one about the upcoming 215th KFU anniversary celebrations.
The meeting, of course, ended with arts performances and a disco.
