In accordance with the tradition, together with the students they have marched through the Lytkina, Nakhimova, Sovetskaya, Uchebnaya and Vershinia Street.
The procession has covered a total of over four kilometers, cheered and organized by animators with loudspeakers. The students chanted mottos of their faculties and celebrated their alma mater in its biggest professional holiday.
The march closed with the traditional Out With The Old! event where over 100 old non-functioning devices were destroyed to make way for new technology spearheaded by the people of TUSUR.
