TSU: Surfing The Net

New Media on The Internet
Social networks swallowed modern man with head long ago. And a student isn't an exception. Our university also keeps up with the times. There are several platforms at the social networks Vkontakte, that allow to keep the track of the events of students' life. A person can dip in the thick of events without living his home.
Such publics as «Overhear at TSU», «Priznavashki TSU», «Acquaintances TSU» and «Typical fresher TSU» were created by the students in the social networks. There are many other groups and publics, but those mentioned above attracted more attention. And we would like to speak about them in details.
«Overheard at TSU». This public page is the analogue of more famous platform «Overheard». It permits to look into the life of a student deeper and find out how he or she lives. Students share everyday problems, failures or, on the contrary, tell about success, happy moments of their learning process and other pleasures of life. «Overheard at TSU» initiated other publics.
«Typical TSU Fresher» appeared after freshmen had blown the public page with their questions at the end of the summer. It is understandable, because obscurity frightens. We want to know a little more than it is written on the websites of our dear University. The administrators divided «Fresher» from «Overheard» without losing salf-control. So the problem with the bemused recruits' questions was solved.
