On 21 January, VSU cyberathletes were presented awards in room 227 (DataArt corporate centre) of the main building of Voronezh State University. Representatives of DataArt, VSU’s partner company, and the university administration participated in the award ceremony.

Sergey Ivliev, a student from the Faculty of Romance and Germanic Philology and the coordinator of the cybersport club “VSU Esports”, talked about cybersports in Russia and, particularly, in VSU.
Evgenia Vasilyeva, a DataArt representative responsible for PR and public relations, told the VSU cyberathletes, including students from the Faculty of Applied Mathematics, Informatics, and Mechanics, the Faculty of Computer Sciences, and the Faculty of Law, about the employment possibilities at DataArt.
Alexander Shashkin, Dean of the Faculty of Applied Mathematics, Informatics, and Mechanics, noted that many students are doing internships at DataArt, which, in its turn, helps the faculty to improve its facilities and equipment: for example, room 227 was created with the assistance and support of DataArt. Alexander Shashkin demonstrated that the teacher’s desk in this room can be transformed into a lecturing desk.
