NCFU students are taking the Olympic Torch Relay

Date of material placement: 16-01-2014, 16:31.

Around 300 NCFU students will join the special Olympic Torch Relay event to welcome the XXII Winter Olympic and XI Paralympic Games to be held in Sochi (Russia) in less than a month. January 24, 2014 the Olympic Torch will go on a tour around Stavropol in the hands of the most outstanding Stavropolities including sportspeople, authorities, journalists, and public activists. And of course the list would be never complete without the most active youth living here, in Stavropol, the City of Students. Students, teachers, and graduates will take the Torch along Dzerzhinskogo Street.

The North-Caucasus Federal University will be represented by 40 volunteers following the Torch around the City. And over 200 NCFU students will have special performances for all those coming to see the Relay making their stay here as bright as possible.

The best of the NCFU groups – the vocal group Constellation, the dance theatre Smile, the dance studio Extreme, the dance group Maximum, the folk dance group Cossack Will, and the studio Vertical – will show their best performances at the main square at the close of the event. Today the rehearsal and training have already started.

The Relay is to start on January 24 from the Railway Station, and the NCFU will pick the Torch at 11.30 taking it from the Institute of Law (Building 5) to the crossroads of Dzerzhinskogo Street and Tolstogo Street. The Official Closing Ceremony will be held at Lenina Square.
