Christmas and New Year Greetings from the Rector of PetrSU Anatoly Voronin
Dear teachers, employees, students, postgraduate students, dearveterans of Petrozavodsk State University!
On behalf of the administration, please accept my sincere greetingsfor Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
New Year's Eve is the time to sum up this year's accomplishments and make new plans. But every success in new endeavours depends on what we have already done, the foundation we have laid for future achievements. And in this regard, we have something to be proud of, because every project or event at Petrozavodsk State University is significant both for the university andthe entire region.
This year was special for PetrSU, it was marked by three anniversaries at once: the 75th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War; 100th anniversary of the Republic of Karelia and 80th anniversary of Petrozavodsk University.
80 years is not only the age of solidity, wisdom, deep knowledge and life experience. This the age of our heyday, when the high status of the university, the reputation won over decades and the brilliant prospects for our university in the new decade have merged together.
It is indeed fortunate to work and study at the university at the time of the anniversary. The anniversary shows the consistently high quality of education, our traditions, the great predecessors, whom someone would like to look up to. The ability to move with the times and do the work for the long run allows Petrozavodsk State University to keep steadily a high level of education quality and remain one of the recognized leaders in the field of highly qualified specialists training.
The passing 2020 was challenging, it has changed a lot in our lives. We were all worried about common concerns, together we tried to cope with the challenges, we have learned a lot, achieved a lot, and we can definitely say that adherence to traditions, the ability to respond to the demands of the time and work for the long run allowed us to achieve great success indevelopment of the education, our university, republic, country. And that is the merit ofouruniversity team, including teachers, employees, veterans, students and postgraduate students. I am grateful for your diligent work, dedication, commitment, for everything that you have done in the passing year!
It is not our policy to be satisfied with what has been achieved, we have to meet the challenging and exciting tasksin the coming year. I am certain that everything planned will turninto reality, because everyone is traditionally keepingpersistence in achieving the goals.
Let the coming 2021heartfully enter our common home - Petrozavodsk State University, bringfortune and success, and become another successful step forwardthe new accomplishments.
Let the New Year preserve old traditions and enrich the new ones, and let the staff of the flagship university work fruitfully for the benefit of future generations!
