"No one is forgotten, nothing is forgotten"

NWIM RANEPA keeps carefully a memory about people’s feat during the Second World War. Almost all faculties of the Institute take care of monuments located in Saint-Petersburg and the Leningrad Region.

Annually students of NWIM participate in action "The Immortal Regiment", hold "subbotnik" (Saturday voluntary work day) at the memorial on the place of the burnt village in Bolshoye Zarechie and near the monument to the children of the Leningrad Blocade.

An international online marathon of reading of wartime letters "I'm writing to you my own...I'm waiting for you my darling!" is held every year.

"Student to student" program

The "Student to student" program is realized in the Institute: students of last years of study help their younger colleagues to adapt to new conditions. Curatorial hours and other fascinating events are held for students.

All students’ achievements are included into their individual rating which is made twice a year based on the results of the academic progress of the students, their achievements in cultural and creative activity, sport, scientific and public work. All successful students get awards and gratitude from the director.
