To accept the challenges of the 21st century, to remain open to the most outlandish ideas, to share their last bitcoin with their friends and to try not to hack Pentagon without a good reason – these are the promises made by the thousands of first-year students of the “first non-classical” as they began the new academic year at ITMO University. The massive open-air event unfolded on a square in front of the “Baltiyskiy Dom” theatre in Alexandrovskiy Park. There, ITMO University’s new students learned about the new opportunities provided to them by the university, raced against each other, played tug-of-war with an enormous USB cable and took part in raffles. As per tradition, they sealed a “Memory Stick” with their messages which will be read out in six years on their graduation day.
More than a thousand of ITMO University’s graduates received their diplomas at the very heart of St. Petersburg, right by the walls of the Peter-and-Paul Fortress. The massive ITMO.Live event was traditionally held on the first Saturday of July and was available to locals, guests of the city and friends of the university. The top graduates received their diplomas from Rector Vladimir Vasilyev, Oksana Oracheva, the general director of the Vladimir Potanin Foundation and Daniil Utkin – one of the country’s most promising young students who achieved a total of 300 points on his Unified State Exam results. On that day, the attendants could entertain themselves in the interactivity zone: bond with their partner at the ITMO.LOVE zone, take home a portrait or a photo, try innovative ice-cream or become part of the university’s history through a video-message. The event culminated in a performance by the iconic St. Petersburg performers – Billy’s Band.
