Artists / Samara State University
Samara State University was founded in 1918 by Constituent Assembly Members’ Committee and Samara Provincial Board.
In 1927 the University was closed but it gave birth to other institutes of higher education in Samara such as: Medical University, Teacher Training University and Agricultural Academy.
Thus, in the middle of 1960s the question of restoring the University in Samara came up again. In 1966, the USSR and RSFSR Council of Ministers decreed to establish Kuibyshev State University. On September the 1st, 1969 Kuibyshev State University welcomed the first students.
