The work of the student government at the university has its origins and rich traditions. Throughout its 55-year history thestudents of the University have always been noticeable for their active position.. And now we can bring a lot of examples that today's students carry on the tradition of the university establish by their predecessors.
Today we have the students’ government, which is indeed involved not only in the social life of the university and the city, but also sets a role model for students of other universities. Notable success was achieved by the student government at a dormitory where the students themselves and the student council play a major role in following the rules of living in a dormitory, provide service conditions, appropriate way of life and order. Over the recent years we have managed to build such system, in which the dormitory’s student council is responsible for making decisions itself. We believe that the rector of the University has chosen the right method of educating students, emphasizing their responsibility for maintaining order, where they live. In recent years numerous city and state review-competitions between the dormitories have been held. According to the results we have achieved good stats.
In 2007, the youth wing of the party “ZhasOtan” held a competition named “Best dormitory of Astana, 2007”. Among twenty dormitories of secondary and higher educational institutions of the city, the title “Best dormitory of Astana” was awarded to Dormitory 7 of our university. It is also encouraging that it was marked as a dormitory with the best student service.
In the terms of the state contest “Meninarmanymdaghyaskhana” (The best canteen) our canteens were declared as the winners. In 2009, Dormitory #5 was entitled as the best students’ dormitory of the country. This competition involved 96 dormitories in Kazakhstan, and Dormitory# 4 was listed in the top ten among other universities.
