Together with the relevant people and officials of Ankara Metropolitan Municipality and Çankaya Municipality, they carry out very good activities to ensure that university students who come to Ankara are not abandoned and feel a sense of belonging to Ankara, because they once experienced the same feelings and went through the same processes. Ankara is the second city where university students prefer to live the most. Our goal is to make Ankara the first city in this regard. "For this reason, it is of great importance that all civil components of the city, public and private partnerships and young people, gathered under the slogan 'University is Studied in Ankara', act together," he said.
