The concert of the culture festival «Ogarev coloring» tops off the Republican Youth Forum dedicated to the International Students’ Day.

On 19th November, the Republican Youth Forum dedicated to the International Students’ Day was held in the Republican Palace of Culture. The social occasion was rounded off with the concert prepared for the culture festival «Ogarev coloring», an event organised by students of Mordovia State University for the sixth consecutive year.

Head of the Republic of Mordovia Vladimir D. Volkov greeted the forum participants. In his welcoming speech he noted that representatives of many international countries, currently in attendance in the hall, study at universities of our region, and Mordovia has become a "second home" for them: - Mordovian universities are getting more and more attractive for foreign students - over 5 last years the student body has increased almost 4 times. Today more than two thousand students from 54 countries across the world study in Mordovia. Many of them take an active part in republican sportive, cultural and scientific events.

V. D. Volkov also mentioned that the future of any country is shaped by the youth, which is its main force and reserve. It is not enough to be a successful student today – one has to be a competitive professional, able to apply one’s knowledge to practice. The Republic needs creative, audacious young people who are not afraid of work and seek to change their lives and society for the better. 

After the official part, the Republican Youth Forum was followed by the concert of the culture festival «Ogarev coloring». Traditional dances and songs were performed by international students from Africa and Latin America, India, China, Italy, Iraq, Sudan, Armenia, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, etc. Apart from that by attending an exhibition anyone could get acquainted with the culture and customs of the peoples, whose representatives study in the Republic of Mordovia.
