Greetings from SUSU Rector Aleksandr Shestakov on the Knowledge Day

Dear lecturers, staff, postgraduates and students!

My sincerest greetings to you on the Knowledge Day, our common holiday!

September 1st is an important and symbolic holiday for us all, as not a single enterprise would be possible without knowledge. The lack of education, competences and skills makes it difficult to get decently settled in life, or fully express your individuality, achieve success and recognition.

The beginning of an academic year always feels optimistic, encourages for new victories and achievements, and opens new horizons. September 1st is a step upwards. South Ural State University keeps accumulating its scientific potential, develops innovative technologies, and confidently moves forward along the path of digital transformations.

I would like to particularly greet our freshmen. Today you are becoming members of the student fellowship, and a new chapter of your life begins which will have a big influence on your future. Having become students of one of the major national research universities of our country, you made the right choice. SUSU features the richest infrastructure, which includes not only a research-and-development complex, but also an expanse of options for creativity and recreation.

Our university will help you receive deep professional knowledge, become a harmoniously developed individual, result-oriented and capable of self-perfection. For that purpose, we are constantly improving the educational process and the material-and-technical base, implementing innovations, inviting the world’s leading scientists for collaboration, and creating the conditions for revealing students’ intellectual and creative potential. Dear first-year students, be active and take part in research work and in the diverse creative student life! May the achievements of the SUSU students and graduates give you inspiration on the difficult but fascinating path of learning!

September 1st is a festive starting point. But for all of us, every next day of the academic year is also a Knowledge Day. I sincerely wish you all to be successful in your professional activities and studying! May this year be event packed and fruitful! Be brave to put your ideas into life! Be confident to move forward, do your best to overcome difficulties and win! After all, it is our joint work that allows to enhance the prestige of South Ural State University and improve its status in the leading Russian and international rankings.

Greetings to you on this holiday, my friends! Good luck in the academic year!

SUSU Rector Aleksandr Shestakov
