Today our university celebrates a very important date – 12 November 1918 our university opened its doors to its first students and started its educational and research activity.
The day when 97 years ago the university started its first lessons, the flowers were laid to the the commemorative plaque dedicated to its founders. The Rector of Voronezh State University Professor Dmitry Endovitsky congratulated students, teachers and staff with the memorable date:
'It is a very important day for the planet named "VSU: today: 12 November is the official birthday of Voronezh State University. Rephrasing our fellow town man, a wonderful writer Andrei Platonov who said "Without me the nation is not complete..." we can say about our university: "without us Voronezh is not complete". It is VSU that covered Voronezh with the gloss of culture, science and education. I am proud to be a part of university.
After the Rector's speech, the participants of the event were welcomed to have a celebratory lunch all together.
