On May 30, 2020, the Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology of Al-Farabi KazNU celebrated its professional holiday – the Chemist’s Day for the 59th time. Traditionally, this day brings together graduates of the Faculty, as a rule, the «graduates of the anniversary years», i.e. those who have completed their studies 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50 and 70 years ago. This holiday has always been filled with warmth, since graduates remember their serene student years, their friends, and favorite teachers. It is no accident that this tradition has attracted other Faculties of our University, and since 2011, on the initiative of Rector Galym Mutanov, the entire University has started to celebrate the Alumni Day on the last Saturday of May.
This year the Alumni Day of the Faculty of International Relations of Al-Farabi KazNU has been celebrated on a large scale, and in a meaningful and interesting way. Due to the coronavirus pandemic and quarantine, the holiday was held in online format. New technologies and great desire helped graduates of different generations to meet, remember the best student years, share their achievements and congratulate their alma mater.
