We continue to tell about the most active students of the university within the project “My Lviv Sate University of Internal Affairs”. Today a law student Mykola APETYK become our hero.

Student notes that there were a lot of bright moments during his studies.

Young man recalled his first trip to Dnipro city to attend International Student Summit, where he and his colleagues won second place.

Over the past four years, he has implemented more than 40 projects – from Ukrainian events to local trainings. Particularly, young man became the founder of the First Lviv Project Workshop, which is designed to implement useful initiatives for young people.

In addition, Mykola Apetyk was the Student Vice-Mayor of Lviv, and now he is the First Deputy Head of Self-government at LvSUIA Faculty of Law.

“At Lviv State University of Internal Affairs I can combine training and interesting projects. It is important that teachers constantly help in this and promote comprehensive development. So I’m grateful to all the research & teaching staff who shared their experience and invested their time in me. This is very valuable”, says Mykola APETYK.

The guy said that, despite training and active participation in various projects, he always tries to leave some time for leisure. Mykola is fond of football and also loves to read.

Presidential scholarships, various prizes, international competitions and tournaments, dozens of conferences and written scientific papers… And this is not the whole list of achievements of cadets, students and associate professors who joined the Scientific Society of Lviv State University of Internal Affairs. After all, participation in research opens new opportunities, helps to realize their intellectual potential and just find like-minded people.

“Members of the Society are the best of the best. In addition to the fact that our students are excellent in education, they are also active in scientific field: they constantly write abstracts for conferences, works on scientific research,says the Head of the Society Yulia SHEVTSIV. She takes care of young scientists, coordinates activities of clubs and organizes scientific and practical events for young people.

Although the coronavirus pandemic has forced the Society to move online, its members are not losing enthusiasm. Young scholars continue to communicate remotely and regularly submit abstracts for conferences. Of course, I want to return to the usual regime, because its easier to work when there is an opportunity to meet directly at a meeting of the society or to attend a scientific event, adds Yulia SHEVTSIV.

Young researchers have an opportunity to draw public attention to important social issues through the writing of scientific articles, papers, presentations at seminars through participation in the Scientific Society. Im concerned about the fight against corruption, and Im writing many articles about it. I would like people to pay more attention to this topic, to talk about it Scientific Society in this regard is very helpful to express yourself. In addition, you are constantly evolving and always achieve something,” shares Yulia NIKITINA, a fourth-year law student and Co-chair of the Society.

Writing a scientific work, report or abstract helps young people to discover new qualities someone learns to speak and perform to the audience, someone finds new hobbies in science, someone manages to realize their potential. For example, Sofiya KYRYLCHUK, a second-year cadet of Faculty №3 and, also part-time, also a Co-chair of the Society, recently hesitated about her research: “At first I was a bit affraid, but teacher supported me, I overcame my fear. And after some time have prepared a scientific work, successfully defended it and won third place. Later I took an active part in writing various reports and later I had a chance to be a Co-chair of the Society. I agreed, because I want to inspire others to active scientific work.”

Environment has a great influence on the formation of personality. Therefore, Mykola KOZAK, a third-year cadet of Faculty №1 and the Head of the Criminal Procedure and Criminology Circle, is convinced that participation in the Scientific Society helps to improve and grow scientifically. “When you see how others develop their abilities, you also try not to lag behind. I’ve been interested in jurisprudence for a long time, I’m interested in various branches of law. But when I joined the Society, I realized that I like the most to research topics from the criminal process”.

Therefore, participation in the Scientific Society helps young people to find themselves, opens new horizons, promotes the development of their own abilities and implementation of interesting ideas.

Last year has become a real teacher for us and helped us to learn some important lessons, said Natalia KALKA, Senior Lecturer at LvSUIA Department of Psychology.

“2020 is awarded by a lot of most unexpected epithets – from “non-standard”, “interesting”, “unpredictable” to “apocalyptic”, “terrible” and even “crazy”, - says the psychologist. Last year “took care” of zeroing in many areas and forced to find a phoenix in ourselves. And also helped to gain a lot of awareness, knowledge and skills. So, it is worth summing up the results of the past year, remembering what wishes you had, what you dreamed of and comparing them with current expectations. Psychologist advises to try to answer several questions honestly:

• What was the main event of the last year?

• What was the most difficult?

• Did I start something in 2020 and finish it?

• Who did I help?

• What did I learn about myself?

• Who am I grateful for and for what?

• Why was this year wonderful?

According to the psychologist, last year helped us learn some important lessons.

Lesson 1. Life is too unpredictable. All goals, expectations and plans must be flexible, but at the same time specific. Previous year has shown that our dreams can be ruined like a “house of cards”.

Lesson 2. Fear can be a strong enemy, a weapon, as well as our protective reaction. During the pandemic, it became clearly visible due to the threat to life and health. Therefore, learning to master fear is the same as putting a predator in a cage and starting to feel pleasure, lightness and harmony in life.

Lesson 3. Control your thoughts and emotions so that they do not control you. Formula of emotional intelligence “understand and manage” provides filtering of negative emotions, their acceptance and effective utilization of them during the pandemic.

Lesson 4. To escape – is to run on the spot. Problems or difficulties need to be solved, not ignored. Therefore, everyone must learn the rule “you need to move to something, not from something.” Positive attitudes and conscious activities will help to replace negative experiences and solve problems.

Lesson 5. Love-appreciate-respect. Self-worth and presence of loved ones gives a sense of security and confidence. Therefore, take care of your close environment, give them time to receive such important and valuable support, understanding and love.

How to memorize info correctly. Tips for entrants

Psychologists advise that you should “make friends” with your mnemonic abilities (from Greek mnemo - memory) and use this personal potential wisely in order to better pass exams and make the most constructive use of the time left for preparation. It needs not only willpower or even knowledge of mnemonic rules to memorize all the information you need, but it’s also important to understand the mechanisms by which memory works.

Memory was studied by the psychologist G. Ebbinghaus at the end of XIX century. He built a forgetting curve that shows how long information is stored in our memory. And also derived some principles and rules to optimize this process.

1. Information must be perceived consciously, then it is more slowly forgotten. Attitude toward it should be emotionally positive.

2. To preserve information for a longer period (for example study of historical dates, names, events, foreign words, mathematical formulas, etc.) you need to use 4R principle (four repetitions): 1. at the time of reading; 2. in an hour; 3. the next morning; 4. in a week.

3. The more carefully you work on the details, the better you will remember. If the amount of information is large, it should be repeated with varying degrees of detail. First time - in full, second time - key points, third time - entire amount of information in a group or otherwise.

4. End effect. The first and last information are best remembered. Therefore, change the sequence of information when memorizing.

5. Interference. Such memories are mixed in the memory, they affect each other, as if displacing the details of individual events. Therefore, when preparing for the exam, try to memorize the material in such way that the most dissimilar questions are successively changed.

6. To better remember connect the association. For example, draw in your imagination some historical event that you are currently working on, imagine main characters, what they are wearing, what tone of voice they have, temperament. And the numbers on the date of this historic event “tie” to the number of arms, legs, buttons on clothes or horses in a team. (Image memory is a person's basic memory, verbal-logical develops much later, and therefore is weaker).

Good luck to you, dear entrants, in studying the material and at exams!
