TAC Hosts an Enthusiastic Celebration of the 99th Anniversary of the Turkish Republic

The ceremony was opened by these words of the student MCs: ‘Sirs, we will proclaim the Republic tomorrow.’ 99 years have passed since these words were uttered. And we are only one year away from celebrating the centennial of the Turkish Republic. We look forward to this celebration, in the same way that they looked forward to the morning after that night when these words were spoken. In the same way that dry land looks forward to rain to fall. We look forward to seeing better days”.

The 99th anniversary of the proclamation of the Turkish Republic was celebrated with colorful performances prepared by our students with the leadership of the science, mathematics and music departments. The story of our Republic was told through with impressive narrations, and with songs emphasizing the meaning and importance of the day.

We firmly believe in the potential of the Turkish youth, just like Atatürk who describe them as Turkey’s future. Happy 99th anniversary of the Turkish Republic!
