Visit by Students from Notre Dame University
Alexandra Smirnova, the organizer of the event and Deputy Head of the Department for International Relations of Saint Tikhon’s Orthodoxy University of the Humanities, said: “During my time in America, I got to know Melissa Miller, a professor at the University of Notre Dame and supervisor of a group of students. We thought the Americans would find it interesting to visit a unique university like Saint Tikhon’s.”
The students began their visit to Saint Tikhon’s with a tour in English, which was conducted by Denis Skurikhin, a student from the Faculty of Theology. The visitors saw the Conciliar Chamber, where they learned about the history of the foundation and building up of the University; they also saw an exhibition on the New Martyrs and Confessors of Russia.


After the tour, Iulia Klushina, a teacher from the Department of Foreign Languages of the Faculty of Theology, spoke to the foreign students about the University and its structure, international collaboration, and about the study programmes organized by the University.
At the close of the event, the students were given a chance to socialize in an informal environment at a buffet. There they met other students, discussed questions that particularly concerned them, and exchange contacts.
“Foreigners often know very little or nothing at all about Russian Orthodoxy, so this visit for them was an opportunity to become familiar with Orthodox youth and with the Orthodoxy Church. Apart from this, encounters like this are essential for strengthening cultural and academic ties amongst students”, Alexandra Smirnova concluded.
