In the Republic of Artsakh, 7 days in a row nearly 160 students lived according to the military daily routine in the scopes of the Pan-Armenian military camp.
It is the 4th time that Student Military Camp takes place in Artsakh. Unlike previous camps, this one included students from different Universities in Armenia, Artsakh and Javakhk. The 9 squads, which stand for the 9 defense regions of Artsakh, tried their abilities in the intellectual, cultural and sport activities, participated in military trainings and lecturers. In Artsakh the day of the students started with doing physical exercises and ended with nominal.
According to the head of the center of Student Affairs Vahagn Varagyan, the projects have two important meaning: “Students, being in the military units, have passed combat trainig and living according to the rules of military routine understood how much efforts our soldiers put in order to protect our lands”.
During the military camp, a lot of lecturers have been read about different topics. The advisor of Artsakh’s president, security expert Tigran Abrahamyan spoke about military-political problems in the region.

It is exciting that future soldiers imagine what kind of problems are in front of him”.
Students the participants of military camp were in a number of historic places. The last day of the military camp a traditional fire was made and the students were singing and dancing till the morning. At the end of the project the participants got their certificates.

The talented students of YSU's Culture Commission represented a beautiful dance and song. During the national dance of YSU SC's Culture Commission the whole hall was accompanying them holding hand by hand. And as the earth rumbles as the armenian soldier steps, the same way the YSU big hall rumbled because of that national dance. As the chairman of YSU Raffi Qaramyan mentioned, that such events were the result of students' liveliness and numerous students of different faculties could take part in it: this fact inspired students to participate in the events even more. As an answer to our question if YSU being the biggest student organization was going to organize such events in a large scale, Raffi Qaramyan answered "Naturally I would like this kind of events to be organized not only as inter-university activites but also in a wide scale, because that way YSU SC would be even more popular and even more students will be indulged in our activities. Irrespective of everything we don't see difference between our and other universities: our aim is to be united. As for these events we yet don't have any particular plans but there are some plans which are aimed at indulging students from other universities in them. And if our events succeed we will already think about acting in inter-institutional events".
