It will use every means available to fulfil its responsibility. We have the responsibility to equip you with knowledge, the ability to process and analyse information, and the ability to produce new knowledge. We will fulfil our responsibilities.”
You should have goals and dreams
Emphasizing that having a dream is a requirement of being a university student, Rector Prof. Dr. Fatih Savaşan pointed out that the students should have a goal and be able to pursue their dreams. Rector Savaşan, “Being a good person shall be your fist goal. Be a good engineer, a good physician, a good economist, a good historian. Scan the horizon. Say the unsaid, do the things that aren’t done, invent the things that aren’t invented. Know that if someone is a successful politician, the other is a successful scientist, another is a successful bureaucrat, you can also succeed.” he said.
Suggesting that students should trust themselves, the Rector of Sakarya University Prof Dr. Fatih Savaşan continued his words as follows: Know that being a good student is more than succeeding in lessons. A university student should develop himself/herself in at least one sport or art field, should participate in social activities, should participate in one or several non-governmental organizations.
Prioritize your lessons, but don’t get lost in them. Time management is everything. When it is well managed, you will see how abundant the time is. You will love Sakarya and Sakarya University. We, as your teachers will always be with you. We will spend time together. You will see that this city and the university have a spirit. That’s why when you talk about this city and university in the future, you will feel like it is a friend, a lover. I hope that every moment will be fruitful and you will look forward to come here. We will try to realize this wish here.”
