İstanbul Yeni Yüzyil University Celebrated Its 10th Anniversary With Enthusiasm

İstanbul Yeni Yüzyıl University celebrated its 10th anniversary with enthusiasm. At the ceremony where Azerbaijan artist Cemile Zalova livened up with her song, there were moments filled with emotion.

The Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Dr. Azmi Ofluoğlu, Vice President Alev Ofluoğlu, and Rector Prof. Yaşar Hacısalihoğlu, members of the Board of Trustees, academicians, guests and students attended to the event held in the conference hall of Alev Ofluoğlu.

”We will always be the followers of the new as İstanbul Yeni Yüzyıl University”

Rector Dr. Yaşar Hacısalihoğlu, who made a speech at the ceremony, said ‘‘It is a special day for all of us, a significant time frame. 10 years is not an important period for universities. If a university is on its way, it starts out with the claim of being a century-old giant plane. Universities don't get old; universities grow with their accumulation, remains young and new. We, with the adjective 'Yeni Yüzyıl' in our name, will continue to be a follower of the new, too.’’

Professor Dr. Hacısalihoğlu continued his speech as follows: ‘‘On February 28, 2009, we started this journey as a foundation university with the approval of YÖK and the decision of the Council of Ministers. The foundation of our university was laid with Dr. Azmi Ofluoğlu's elegance, meticulousness , hard work, with all the experience and knowledge at hand and with very honorable Lady Mrs. Alev Ofluoğlu’ support, flow of heart and love. Today, we offer our appreciation to our distinguished academicians and dear students, who are among us or not, who leave good memories here on this great journey.’

In the ceremony, which was livened up with Azerbaijani artist Cemile Zalova’s concert, at the same time, our students Enes Kar and Remzi Miraç Kaya played the kemence and performed a music recital belonging to the Black Sea region with the contributions of İstanbul Yeni Yüzyıl University Trabzon Sports Club.
