Happy Russian Students’ Day from Pre-University Training Faculty Students

Dear students!

The staff of the Pre-University Training Faculty congratulates you on Russian Students’ Day! And Happy Name Day to all Tatyanas!

On January 22, 2021, an open lesson dedicated to Russian Students’ Day (Tatyana's Day) was held at the Pre-University Training Faculty.

During the lesson, the FinU foreign students learned about the history and traditions of celebrating Students’ Day in Russia. 

Russian Language teachers told the foreign students about the origin of this holiday. The Russian Orthodox Church celebrates the name day of all Tatyanas, named after Saint Tatiana, a Christian martyr in 3rd century Rome, on January 25. 

Moreover, Empress Elizabeth of Russia endorsed Mikhail Lomonosov’s initiative to establish a university in Moscow and signed a corresponding decree on January 25, 1755. Since then the Russian Orthodox Church declared Saint Tatiana the patron saint of students and Tatyana's Day is celebrated as Russian Students’ Day.

The students of the Pre-University Training Faculty congratulate their Russian peers, and hope to celebrate the next holiday in Moscow!
