Today, the annual award ceremony “Best Student 2015” was held at YSU.

The competition “Best Student 2015” this year is dedicated to the 50th anniversary of birth of the National Hero of Armenia, YSU alumnus Tatul Krpeyan. It is included in the list of the jubilee events of the State Committee.

A special commission, formed many years ago, announces the names of the best students each year. Naturally, it is a difficult and responsible process. This competition pays great attention to the educational achievements of students, social activities, significant achievements in the field of science and educational progress.

This annual competition is organized by YSU Student Affairs Division and the cultural – by YSU Cultural Centre. This year the participants represented 16 faculties, as well as YSU Institute for Armenian Studies and Centre for European Studies. Three faculties did not participate in the competition, as they had not met the required standards.

Though November 17 is the International Students’ Day, this major event took place today. This year students received congratulations two times. At the initiative of YSU Student Council, the traditional program “Student Administration” was held, too, when students act as rector and managers of the departments for one day.

YSU Rector Aram Simonyan, vice-rectors, deans, lecturers, alumni and heroes of the day – students were present at this festive event. YSU and international student anthems sounded and then congratulatory messages were read.

YSU Rector Aram Simonyan noted that as this year’s competition is dedicated to our national hero, we should celebrate this date with a special pride.

“Although a limited number of best students will be selected today, there are many smart ones, as they are our hope, who are going to shape our bright future. YSU is proud of them, their success and achievements,” - said YSU Rector.
