The reception of the 2013-2014 academic year graduates took place on Saturday, 7 March 2015, at "Chalian" Hall of "M. & H. Arslanian" Djemaran.
Alumni Association Board member Aram Somounjian introduced the activities of the Association to the new generation, after which each graduate introduced himself, his chosen profession or the sphere of his career to the audience.
Then, the new generation’s godfather, Central Executive Board Chairman Mgrdich Mgrdichian was invited to make a speech. He greeted the graduates saying, "Today is a special day for the graduates of Djemaran. With this formal and modest ceremony, the graduates of the last academic year will join the Djemaran Alumni Association. I am invited to talk on this occasion, and I would like to welcome you in the Djemaran Alumni Association."
Then he continued, "In a movie, which humorously describes the life of the Greek community in the diaspora, the hero - a Greek traditionalist father, believes that the world consists of two groups of people. The first are the Greeks, and the second are the rest of the humanity who would like to be Greek born. Similarly, in our Armenian surrounding, there exists an opinion that the world consists of the seminarians and the rest, which dream about being seminarians. However, if there exists also a third group, then it is probably its own fault.
Is it true? Of course not, but the story does not end there, because at the same time, those in the second group have their special opinion about the seminarians. They seriously think that the Djemaran students are spoiled, selfish, boastful and arrogant and they consider themselves and their institution the hub of the universe. Is this opinion correct? Of course not, but in such opinion or a joke there is a grain of objective truth. What is the grain of that truth, which is actually based upon a good number of positive features, the negative interpretation of which makes such an impression on the outer world?"
