The Flagship University celebrated the beginning of a new academic year. Part 1. The official ceremony.


On the 1st of September Russia celebrates the Knowledge Day and the beginning of a new academic year. Various educational institutions open their doors to students throughout the country.

Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev traditionally holds the celebration on the square in front of the Fundamental Library. Since morning, crowds of students have flocked to the place of the event. They, beautiful and elegant, gathered with smiles and joy in the square to meet the new academic year. Among them, one could notice gymnasium students for whom Gymnasium No. 1 of OSU named after I.S. Turgenev will open its doors for the first time.

The celebratory assembly dedicated to the Knowledge Day was opened by the Rector of the Flagship University Olga Pilipenko:

Today yet another story begins in the life of the University. We have replenished with a large guard of young, healthy, beautiful, purposeful people. More than 3,000 freshmen and 40 gymnasium students was accepted to the University. Over 600 foreign students from 67 countries of the world were enrolled in the first course of the Preparatory Department. It is a great honor and great trust for us. I think that those years that you will spend together with us, will be one of the best years in your life. I congratulate everyone on September 1, the beginning of the new academic year and the Knowledge Day. Let this year be filled with new achievements and discoveries. Let this year bring you joy and hope. I wish you good health, peaceful sky over your head! Happy holiday!”

Andrey Klychkov, provisional governor of the Orel region, also joined in congratulations. He noted the key role of the State University in the socio-economic development of the region and intellectual capacity-building:

We justly call your home university the flagship of higher education and research activities in the region, the driver of innovative development of Orlovschina. Educating students in 300 areas of training, the University prepares the most advanced staff, which is in high demand both in our region and in many regions of Russia.”

Andrei Evgenievich urged students to make the most efficient use of time at the University and find a worthy application for their talents.

People gathered in the square were also congratulated on the Knowledge Day by Leonid Muzalevsky, Chairman of the Orel Regional Council of People's Deputies, Ekaterina Danilevskaya, Head of the Social Support Department, Vasily Ikonnikov, Member of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation from Orel Region, Nadezhda Perelygina, Chairman of the Orel Regional Organization of the Trade Union workers of public education and science of the Russian Federation.

Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Costa Rica, Arturo Fournier Facio was a special guest who attended the official ceremony. In his speech the Ambassador noted that Russia and Costa Rica have similar goals and objectives in the field of education.

We also celebrate the Knowledge Day in our country. I congratulate you on this holiday and wish you success!”- Arturo Fournier Facio addressed the students.

Following the tradition, students laid flowers to the memorials and monuments of the war heroes, among which there are graduates of the OSU.

And then the celebration continued in the classrooms, where the academic staff of the faculties / institutes were introduced to the freshmen and student IDs were handed out.

Ahead the “recruits” have the period of adaptation to the university life, student initiation ceremony and the opportunity to implement their ideas and plans.

Correspondent of the Information Policy Department of OSU named after I.S. Turgenev talked to some of the freshmen and learned what they wished themselves for their first academic year at the University.

Anna Akinshina, 1st year student of Physics and Mathematics Faculty:

"I wish to myself to study well, find good classmates and friends and just have a good time!"

Daniil, 1st year student of Natural Sciences and Biotechnology Institute:

I wish not to fail the midterm and not to get flunked out. I wish to put my best foot forward and get the enhanced stipend [laughs]. But specific goals will be formed in the coming months, I think.”

Alexandra Blizkova, 1st student of Pedagogy and Psychology Institute:

I wish myself courage, more determination and nothing to fear. Everything will be fine in due course!”

We expect that all hopes and dreams of the freshmen will be fulfilled as soon as possible.




Inforum” was held on the basis of the Flagship University


The Flagship University has become a venue for the "Inforum", dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Russian Union of Journalists formation.

"Inforum" is a one-day event for journalists of regional and local media, bloggers, media managers, spokespersons. Participants attend discussions about new media, trends, and social networks, participate in master classes of federal experts. Orel was the tenth city in which this educational platform was opened.

At today's events, local journalists, as well as guests from other regions of our country, have the opportunity to find answers to current questions concerning their profession, offer acute issues for discussion and discuss current trends in the development of the media,” says Vladimir Prokokhin, director of the project office in Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev.

And there were a lot of people willing to participate in the forum - for the most part, in the regions of Russia, such educational platforms are a real rarity. The organizers of the Inforum noticed this need for educational interactivity and decided to change the situation radically. “Inforum is a series of educational workshops that we decided to hold in 27 regions of Russia. This is done to make it convenient for journalists to study at home, without leaving, for example, for Moscow. We brought experts who will talk about the integration of media into the Internet, about current trends and about how modern media live,” says Julia Zagitova, secretary of the Russian Union of Journalists.

This topic was not chosen at random - the modern, digital age dictates its laws. Journalism is now experiencing functional changes that directly affect the quality of the material produced. And it's not just about the fast-changing Internet - even traditional newspapers, television and radio are undergoing transformation. Moreover, instant messengers and social networks enter the struggle for the audience.

That is why the organizers of the forum focused on a simple idea - modern media should be flexible, feel the change in the “information climate” and adapt to their audience. So, the speakers told not only how to create unique content for the Internet, but also how to translate traditional media into digital.

Acute issues have not escaped the attention, concerning the legislative framework in the first place. To be more precise, concerning its imperfections - modern media are under the close supervision of Roskomnadzor, which is not always beneficial. The fact is that subject matter experts who create a unique product are forced to spend precious time agreeing and clarifying the subtleties of laws. They could prioritise time with the creativity and improve the quality of their work. Within the framework of the Inforum, the representatives of the latter and Orel journalists tried to find the fine line that would open “the space for creativity” on the one hand, and on the other, did not contradict the legislation. As it turned out, it is quite difficult.

Andrey Klychkov, the provisional governor of Orel region, became a special guest of the Inforum - participants had a certain interactive experience with him. An analogue of the press conference turned out - the journalists asked questions of interest to them, shared their impressions of the results of the activities of the provisional governor, and asked to pay attention to the problematic issues that are currently relevant for the region.

Andrei Klychkov became a guest not by an accident - perhaps, this is the first head of the region, who communicates actively with the inhabitants of the region through social network. It is frequently when the provisional governor received complaints and requests bypassing the relevant departments and administrations. This approach certainly catched fancy of natives of Orel region - all appeals not only garner likes, but also are duly solved.

The most part of the Inforum program was master classes:

Theme: “Global Challenges and Trends of the Modern Media Sphere”, Speaker: Oleg Kuzin - Head of Multimedia Editorial and TV Channel “Izvestia”;

Theme: “Intelligent and automated sales of advertising for a modern publisher”, speaker: Maxim Sychev - Director for Strategic Development of the Advertising Alliance of Publishers;

Theme: “How to make content in the social network, if you have print media?”, Speaker: Ilya Lochkanov - Director of Social Networks Department of “Komsomolskaya Pravda”;

Theme: “Media trends of social networks”, speaker: Yulia Zagitova - Secretary of the Russian Union of Journalists, media researcher, author of the Telegram-channel “Breaking trends”;

A workshop was organized for students and young journalists at the Inforum: an interactive master class and a business game. It was conducted by Sergey Kosenchuk, Deputy Executive Director of the International Student Television Association. Participants learned about student journalism, opportunities for young journalists and about professional growth. The topic of fake news and clickable headlines was touched on within the business game - using fact-checking, participants were asked to determine which headline was true and which was not.

During 2018 “Inforum” is going to visit 27 cities of Russia. The next will be Grozny - there journalists and media workers will meet on August 30.

The “School of Adaptators” was opened in Orel State University

28. 08.2018

The project appeared within the walls of Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev three years ago. The “School of Adaptators” began at the Institute of Instrument Engineering, Automation and Information Technologies (IPAIT), and later it entered the University level. The educational event includes a series of master classes for students of the Flagship University on legal, social literacy, rules of communication with structural divisions of the University. The training takes three days. As a result, students write a test paper and receive the certificate of completion the “School”.

The head of the “School of Adaptators”, Igor Volkov, told about the objectives of the project, its differences from the training in the trade union to the correspondent of the Information Policy Department.

The “School of trade-union organizers” is aimed at in-depth study of regulations and scholarship procedure, and the “School of Adaptators” is a project that prepares curators for young students in the first days of their life at the University, it explains the difference between the faculty and the department, where and how to find out the scholarships amount - these and other questions should be answered by curators.

This year, 150 students of OSU named after I.S. Turgenev became participants of the “School of Adaptators”. For each of them, visiting the master classes of the project is a real opportunity to supplement their own bundle of knowledge and learn how to transfer it correctly to the younger generation of students.

The starting lecture of the School was called “Teambuilding”. During it the expert of trade union Victoria Stakhnjuk told the listeners about how it is correctly to introduce first-year students into student's life. Elections of the trade union organizer, unification of the group, the transfer of information - these are the things the adaptator will be engaged in the first days after the beginning of the school year. Victoria told the correspondent of the Information Policy Department on the relevance and importance of the “School of Adaptators”:

Our task is to help first-year students adapt painlessly to the new environment for them. The easiest way to do this is with the help of student-curators, and to make it easy for them to interact with a group of freshmen, we gathered up-to-date information on various aspects of student life. Therefore, after school, the guys will be maximally prepared to meet new students and will be able to help them in any situation.

Also on the first lecture day the students of the “School” learned general information about the University: the difference between the institute, the faculty, the dean's office, the department, what is the primary trade union organization, who enters there, what the commission of the trade union committee is doing. The end of the lecture day was the presentation on the legal framework related to student life. It includes general concepts of the rights and obligations of the student, information on the resolution of disputes related to scholarships.


There are two more days of training ahead for the students of the “School of Adaptators”. They will include lectures on record keeping, information work in the group, as well as master classes on the ideology of the leader and public speeches.

We give the floor to our participants:

Angelina Kozhukhova, the student of OSU

I like these activities very much, especially if they give useful knowledge and develop certain skills. This “School of Adaptators” will interest everyone, because master classes are the easiest format for gaining knowledge. The lecturers showed how important it is to be the curator of the group, proved that this is a very demanded and necessary work, requiring attention and responsibility.

Today there were three master classes, where we talked about the rights of the student, the structure of the University and the value of communication in the life of the University. I believe that the guys who passed the school of adaptators will become excellent curators and help their groups to join the friendly staff of the faculty or institute, because our University is one big family where everyone helps each other. I really enjoyed today's event. I look forward to continuing the School!
