Karazin University Student’s Life at a Glance: Creative Contest “Alma Mater”


Student years are the happiest and the most joyful period of a person's life. They are not only about hard intellectual work, but also about the joy of joint creativity, victories in contests and sports competitions. One of the most eagerly awaited events for those starting their student path is the annual first-year students' creative contest Alma Mater.

As is the tradition, this contest takes place on the initiative of the Student Academic Council, the Primary Trade Union Organization of undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral students, and the Cultural Center of V. N. Karazin Kharkiv National University. Each of these organizations helps organize and conduct the contest enabling the first-year students to create bright performances and get an taste of the extracurricular student’s life.

The Alma Mater takes place in the Assembly Hall of the University Main Building and lasts for a whole week. Each day is for a few Schools to presenting their programs consisting of various performances united by a common theme. The participants present their vocal and dance performances in different styles and genres, namely fragments from famous musicals, cover-versions of Ukrainian and foreign singers’ popular songs, ballet parties, tango, rock-and-roll, break-dance, etc. First-year students adore participating in these performances because they have an opportunity to show their talents, get to know their fellow students better and ensure their senior fellow  students' support, the latter gladly helping the first-year students prepare for the event.

The jury selects the best performances that will be afterwards presented at the gala concert of the contest. The gala concert takes place under the aegis of the Primary Trade Union Organization of undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral students within the framework of the International Students’ Day celebration. All the contest participants receive memorable diplomas in a variety of nominations, namely: Best Costumes, Best Vocal Performance, Best Ball Performance, Artistry and Artistic Skills, Ingenuity and Originality, etc. The gala concert ends with the winners announced and awarded valuable prizes.

First-year students prove themselves very responsible throughout the whole preparation to and participation in the Alma Mater contest. They will convene every day for a month before the concert to hold rehearsals and discuss their performances. And with the holiday behind them, they feel satisfaction and are looking forward to future concerts and contests Karazin University has in store  for them. The Alma Mater contest give the first-year students an incentive to take active part in the public life of both their own School and the entire University.
