On Monday, September 2, Altai State University will become one of the most massive city venues for the celebration of Knowledge Day.

Traditionally, the first day of the new academic year will start with an eventful festive program, which will be held at the University Courtyard.

For the fourth year in a row, the University Courtyard will become the center of attraction for young people who have chosen the flagship university of Altai Krai to study at. Thus, in 2019, almost 4 thousand people have become the first-year students of Altai State University.

The celebration dedicated to Knowledge Day will begin with the parade of the faculties’ delegations at the main building of Altai State University. At 10am, students and lecturers will enter the courtyard through the symbolic Gate of Knowledge holding flags and banners.

The parade of faculties, where each educational unit of Altai State University will be presented, will be greeted by 

Lomonosov mascot at the entrance to the courtyard. Further, the rector and professors of ASU, top officials of the regional and city administrations, and the University Alumni Council will congratulate students and lecturers on the beginning of the academic year. The best student will present the symbolic Key to Knowledge to the best entrant of Altai State University, and a giant student ID will be presented to all first-year students of the university.

The morning celebration will end with the launch of balloons into the sky to the sounds of the well-known anthem of ASU.

In the evening, Knowledge Day will traditionally continue with a large open air concert. At 6pm, all students of Barnaul, who love good dance music, are invited to listen to the best songs performed by Barnaul music bands.
