This year the celebration was special because it is the 80th time the Zaporizhzhya National University opens its doors for the students. Gladly, majority of ZNU freshmen are those who studied for As and Bs in the high schools.
The celebration began from the singing of the Ukrainian Anthem and the Anthem of ZNU.
The Rector Sergiy Tymchenko congratulated students and said that the university entered the list of the top 20 best Ukrainian Universities out of 400 higher educational establishments of ІІІ-ІV levels of accreditation. The rector pointed that this 2010/2011 academic year will be the one with two priorities of development: informatization of the educational process and studying of the foreign languages.
Some Zaporizhzhya officials and other guests visited the celebrations too.
The festive concert followed the official part of the Knowledge Day celebration. More photos are here:
