She called students to contribute to the positive image of the North Caucasus through respect for the traditions, customs, and the history of the neighboring peoples; this will make the North Caucasus famous again for its hospitality and beautiful alpine resort areas. Besides, Rector of the NCFU told the students not to leave as soon as they graduate but to stay here contributing to the well-being of the region through their professional activities. The NCFU is the largest University here and it should be pro-active in implementing this initiative.
