The year of 2015 is about to end. Tomsk State University has achieved many positive results this year. In a very competitive environment, we had to prove that TSU is one of the best universities of Russia and of the 5-100 Program. We can prove that with multiple awards in scientific, education, and creative competitions, better ranking results, publication activity in the most acknowledged international journals, and popularity among Russian and international enrollees.
Today TSU is truly open to the world and to the society.
We have gained so much that one might think we did not have to make any effort in order to do that. But we know exactly how much it took to bring success to the University. We did and do our best at a very complicated time. We are responsible for keeping our traditions, culture, and knowledge – everything we inherited from the previous generations of those who dedicated themselves to the University.
Today I want to convey my deep appreciation to the employees and the students for their hard work, patience, and love of their alma mater.
I believe that next year is also going to be a year of success, productive work, new discoveries, and wonderful events.
I wish my fellow colleagues and all our students to have a lot of energy, creative ideas, and inspiration. A lot of health and happiness to your beloved! Happy New Year!
