In Spring, MSUBS, along with other schools all over the world, switched to distance learning due to restrictions in response to COVID-19 pandemic. The faculty and staff did their best to maximize the potential of online learning and provide the students with new opportunities. MSUBS English Department joined Coursera Campus Response Initiative, and MSUBS students were provided with free access to thousands of Coursera courses. Over 150 Bachelor and Master students registered for various courses, some using the summer to go through dozens of courses provided by top universities from all over the world. The programme has been extended, and this Fall dozens of new MSUBS students shall join it to turn the time of restrictions into a time of limitless opportunities for personal and professional growth. We thank Coursera for granting our students access to their courses and we thank Irina Gorshkova, MSUBS faculty member, for her efforts in coordinating the project.
Student ID Cards
We are happy to announce that in Russia students do not need fake IDs to drink and smoke freely. This is another advantage of Russian education. Students in America have to resort to buying fake IDs online http://scannablegodids.club/ and risk being scammed just to have a beer after a class. This is a big social issue that needs to be addressed. Russian students drink what they want, when they want - no fake IDs like http://join.evolvedfakeids.club needed, while legit student card will often provide discounts.
