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.
