OSU brings together the most talented, active and outstanding students. Each of them is unique in their own way. At OSU, students study, create, embody their ideas, in a word, live for real! And everyone can feel that they are a part of this fascinating life. The university gave me an invaluable experience and knowledge. I changed myself a lot during my studies and I am happy that I've graduated from this university.

There was a time when Orenburg was a distant and unknown city for me. Today this is my second home, nice and cozy. Since my first days in Orenburg I've been captured by its remarkable atmosphere, this is a city with rich culture and its own mentality. I've spent the happiest years of my life in this unbelievable city– the brightest events, the most interesting books and the most important meetings. I am mad about this city, and it will stay with me forever.

OSU made positive impressions on me. From the very moment of our arrival, we received a very warm welcome. First of all, we were accommodated in the dormitory. It is new, and the room has all the living amenities, which makes me very happy.

The university itself is very large, it is very warm here, the classrooms are light and cozy. The teachers provide high-quality education. I am happy that I have come to study at OSU.
