I had a handful of choices, like going to Germany, but I chose Russia
Having a number of college options, among them some in Russia and Germany, I chose to apply to Saint Petersburg Polytechnic University. This city has stolen my heart. The university where I am studying system analyses and control is known to be one of the best technical universities in Russia. My choice of the field of studies was influenced by my parents. I like the university’s facilities and tuition structure. Students enjoy the opportunity to do an exchange year abroad which is an incredible experience. Even though I study technology I was also involved in artistic activities when we listened to live music and tried to analyze it. By the way, there is an interesting fact about the university: when you enter the main building you can hear classical music played. As a guitar player I often take part in student music events which are conceived and staged by ourselves.
