Today at the 11st of May when all midterms are finished, university entrants will take a part in competition called "Megachance". This competition is made only for entrants and 25 winners of it will get annual discount of 25% for studying in IAB. I think it is a great opportunity,isn't it?
This competition will be in 3 tours. First is IQ test. Second is an essay on topics,which wil be given to competitors. And the third is results of National Testing.
First of all, I woul like to say that last year I took part in "Megachance" myself. And i passed and got discount. Many of competitors go on this competition sadly, thinking ,that they won't win. Frankly speaking, last year, I thought the same. But now, looking back, I understand that I wasn't right. This competition really gives a great chance for those people who really want to study in iAB. Moreover, it is not theonly competition which gives discount. Every year IAB organizes many olympiads and winners get 50%,30% and 25% discounts for studying.
Also, this competition lets you become more developed, because topics which you get for essay are totally not like in school, themes there are a lot more serious and it shows that IAB is searching for smart and serious future businessmen.
At the end , I would like to say that if you have a chance you need to use it. No matter who you are: student or you already work somewhere, or you're only going to university. Always use your opportunities and you won't regret about it later.
Yesterday, on the 29th of April in IAB was a great event. In our university was opened IAB's museum. But this museum is unusual, it is interactive museum. This musem is made for showing students and IAB's guests history of IAB development.
In this museum there are two zones: external and internal. In internal zone there is a videohall, where are presented different short videos about IAB , which will tell guests IAB' history and most bright moments.
On the left side of internal zone there is a stand with IAB's awards that it has got during 25 years of it's existence.
In external zone there is an interactive panel on which everyone can just choose one exhibit and watch it in details.
I also would like to add, that there is no more museums in Almaty's universities, so IAB is the first in this theme. Using different technologies IAB becomes better and more developed.
On the 20th of April in Almaty was organized third charitable marathon " Courage to be the first". This marathon is organized for supporting different charitable projects in Kazakhstan, because all money that organizers get from it , they give it to charity. Also, very important that this event shows the whole city how important in our life to be healthy and prefer healthy way of life.
There were 5 distances : 42 km 195 m, 21 km, 10 km, 3 km and ekiden. The winners of of this marathon get some useful prizes and winners of the longest distance ( 42 km 195 m) get a permit to Amsterdam's marathon.
IAB took part in this marathone too. Teachers, students, employees of IAB had run for different distances. In total there were 36 people from IAB, 14 of them were students.
Another IAB's students woke up early and went on some places,which were on the road of running, to support everyone in marathone, especially IAB's people. Everyone could see our students in IAB's t-shirts, screaming and clapping. Our fans were the best and the brightest.
Last weeks of april were full of different and bright events. One of them is educational exhibition. On this exhibition Almaty's unviersities were presented by their students, and IAB also took part in it. First of all,this exhibition was prepared for pupils who are deciding and choosing a university to go to the next year.
Everyone could see,that the territory IAB had on it was the biggest. Moreover, the most number of students on this exhibition again was of IAB's students. These event pasted for three days and during all these days pupils from the whole city could come and see what IAB is. Our students told them about IAB's educational system, frankly speaking, they told pupils everything about IAB.
Besides it, our students didn't forget about fun. So, everyone could dance with our students, take part in some competitions and just spend time with them and feel IAB's atmosphere.
These three days were very impressive and everyone who was there got a great mood.
I've already written about kazakh national holiday called "Nauryz". This holiday lasts for one month and our university celebrated it yesterday, when the weather was the best for such event. Preparation for this holiday started on last week with setting on IAB's territory yurts. A yurt is a portable, bentdwelling structure traditionally used by nomads in thesteppes of Central Asia as their home.
This celebration wasn't only for students and teachers, also students could take with them their families, because Nauryz is a family holiday. Celebration was outside the building, on the fresh air. Students could take part in different competitions and they had a chance to win some prizes. Everyone could eat kazakh national food. A little bit later, on the afternoon, there was a concert, prepared by students and teachers. Also, on the concert, there were presented different nationalities with their national dancings and songs.
Making a conclusion, I can only say that this day was very bright and it will always be in our memory. Thanks to IAB for making fun for us and making us have fun together.
