His Excellency Nazarbayev on Our Campus

President Nazarbayev visited our campus the same day the Olympic Torch was running through Almaty.  A high point for the select few was to usher His Excellency into the new building that was just finished.  Just yesterday I went to a faculty meeting in one of the three halls and the acoustics were very good.  Wonderful to have this new building on our campus which will help facilitate scheduling of classes for fall semester.  All seems bright and cheery on the outside though you wouldn’t know that if you were listening in on the statements and comments made at the faculty meeting.  Many valid points were made.
