Congratulatory message of the Rector of Shirak State University Yervand Serobyan to the graduates of Shirak Alma Mater

Dear graduates, the current situation prevented shaking your hands individually to accompany you to a new, more important stage, but please accept my warm congratulations. The indisputable power of all times is the power of thought, the most wonderful beauty is the beauty of creative thought. The process of higher education is an opportunity to harden the power of thought and to express oneself with the beauty of creative thought. Aristotle said: “The roots of education are bitter, but the fruits are sweet.” Now is the time to enjoy those fruits. Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world and make it a better place. Many of you will apply your knowledge and skills to your work, forming an important part of the cream of society, and some will follow the advice of Jean Jacques Rousseau, who believed that a student should not study science, but should invent it himrself.

Dear students, whatever path you choose, whatever heights you reach in your profession and science, may your constant companions be your personal happiness and well-being.

Good Luck
