“A melancholy time! So charming to the eye!”… Autumn has swiftly taken over in Yerevan and has united the students of the MSU Branch within the Autumn Ball. This beautiful annual event organized by the efforts of the Student Council used to take place merely for entertainment purposes. For studentship is not only about lectures and workshops but also about rich extracurricular activities. A life full of socialization, emotions and unforgettable impressions.

Autumn Ball brought together all the students of the university in wonderful ambience of breathtaking sound of waltz! The Autumn Ball of 2016 kept many features of ball etiquette. All students followed the strict rule of dress code and dressed appropriately: ladies were wearing ball or evening gowns while gentlemen were in suit and tie or bowtie. It is no coincidence that the first words that are associated with the word ball are dignity, honor and beauty.

Solo performances of female students of the Branch introduced the Autumn Ball. Accompanied by the university jazz band, which once again performed perfectly, they performed a number of famous musical compositions.

The major criteria for selection of dance music for the Autumn Ball were the joy and positivity of human emotions. Ladies and their men – freshmen students posseted ecstatically in waltz and demonstrated high dancing class. Festive ambience was prevailing throughout.

A reception followed the ball and both students and guests of the Autumn Ball were invited to it. The presence of guests was one of the advantages of this unforgettable evening.

Special vigor and awe were caused by the discotheque at the end of the event which totally put the guys at ease.
One of the beautiful and memorable evenings of the beginning of the 2016-17 academic year was no slouch thanks to the enthusiasm of the organizers and participants.

This good tradition will spark its golden flames for many more times to come under the roof of our Branch.
