Center for Academic Writing “Impulse”
Writing is the best way to talk without being interrupted.
Writing is thinking on paper.
When writing about science, don't simplify the science; simplify the writing.
Writing is a lot easier if you have something to say.
The reason one writes isn't the fact he wants to say something. He writes because he has something to say.
Good writing is clear thinking made visible.
A man who is ignorant of foreign languages is also ignorant of his own language.
Only the educated are free.
One`s work may be finished someday, but one`s education never.
What sculpture is to a block of marble, education is to the soul.
Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.

Elena Arbatskaya shared her opinion:
"I really like this new format of activity, which Impulse offered – ADC! I really appreciated the opportunity to be a moderator of the meeting devoted to feminism. The points of views of the participants were different, so the discussion was really hot. It was an exciting experience!"
Evgeniya Abysheva, Institute of Social Sciences & Humanities
"Thank you for organizing such a brilliant discussion!
I could never imagine that such a topic as feminism could be interesting for people from different spheres, but the discussion convinced me that their interest was natural. Moreover, I never considered myself a feminist, but after this discussion, I realized that I share their ideas."
Svetlana Erpyleva, Researcher and Instructor, School of Advanced Studies:
"The first meeting of the Academic Discussion Club I visited was devoted to feminism. I enjoyed the discussion, and I liked that very different opinions were represented there. I've met some people I would like to continue to be in touch with, and I think it is very important especially considering the fact that most UTMN faculty communicate with colleagues from their departments and do not know a lot of people outside of the departments. At least, it is definitely my case. I liked also that most of the participants seemed to be really interested in the content of the discussion and not just in practicing their English. Finally, as a sociologist, I enjoyed not only being involved in the discussion but also observing different opinions and beliefs about feminism among UTMN professors. The ADC organizers, including the moderator, did a great job!"
