For the first time Orenburg State University held a SchoolLeaverWeekend.
According to Zhanna Ermakova, OSU rector, the event is to introduce entrants to the university and its programs, to show the wide spectrum of social activities and to demonstrate the prospects for the school leavers who enroll into the leading university of the region.
Many of school leavers together with their parents made the final decision after visiting open-air presentation sites of OSU 11 faculties and 2 institutes where they could talk to the students and educators.
There was a special guide and consultant around these sites — a fairy-tale character the Cat Postupaika. All comers got a baloon with a gift inside — wishes and instructions how to enter the university.
On the sport gound the guests could play streetball, volleyball and other games.
