NEU Heading to Mersin
The rise of triplication : The Near East is in Mersin
If we, as Near East University, call the ‘famous triplication’ of Near East University as an image of ‘a fluent novel’ in the perspective of education life, it is not exagerated.
In the progress of life within the sensation of days that lived with most enchanment, even it was felt only just a bit that those days were different, though, the hastiness of hearts and gratification of minds get into each other and oneself regards himself as a movie actor.
Dr. Suat İrfan GÜNSEL, the Rector of NEU, (then the Founding Rector) always takes the plunge, completes preparations for travelling and mobilizes Near Easterners by maximizing their dynamism within 24 hours. This is a captaincy story of realization of triplication.
Apart from aforesaid, hundreds of correspondences, too many protests, countless legal remedy insistences and numerous inconclusive meetings. They are all restrained... The files are waiting to be opened and discussed.
Savings obtained up to now might be adequate to keep ’yesterday’ in files...
The most ‘exciting’ days were indited by setting them free.
30 January 2002: “NEU complained YÖK to Atatürk”
19 February 2002: “Honor Day of Near East”
The subject of the line is: 22 September 1997. In other words; the ‘first’ of triplication.
The date is 21 September-22 September. Preparation for going to Mersin, representatively to Anatolia…Sailing to protest the HEC President and Administration in Mersin University.
The ship of of NEU , which is emcumbered with memories as outfit, has an immortal name which is called Near East . ‘Green Headed Duck’ ; a training ship which is 47 meters in length and 546 grass tones...
Passengers of the ship are all academic member of Near East University. Thoroughly sea in Mediterranean… Instructors are ready early in the morning, so resistant, so chic; they are uniquely suited to their duties.
All unfair and illegal enterprise applications of HEC created a great resistant potential. This potential was ready to turn into kinetic energy for a long time. Similar applications were imposed to Mersin University by HEC. Upon this, Dr. immediately made up his decision on behalf of the Near East University family and readily mobilized to sail to Mersin with academic staff. This arrival to Mersin was considered as ‘an expedition to Anatolia’ from South.
What happened in Mersin all day long, even it was a full-scale meeting, should not be considered as a protest. Indeed, the day in Mersin was a resistance day against unlawfulness of HEC presidency and administration. The speeches were decked with sensible and juridical expressions.
Successive speeches of the Rector, the Vice Rector and Academic staff of Near East University and the Rectorate administrators and academic staff of Mersin University last for many hours, which were like a social survey feast. It was parade of scientific themes on historical integrity of Turkey and Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. Surely, spontaneous satires against HEC pressures made the day unforgettable.
The taken photos are the souvenir of Mersin days and notably the day of 22 September 1997. When we look at those photos, we can see the mood of the day in every way.

An example, published in a newspaper:
«Dr. , the Rector of Near East University from TRNC and accompanying academic staff lay a wreath at monument of Ataturk yesterday... Dr. Günsel stated at the wreath-laying ceremony that the discussions between HEC and Mersin University affect adversely the university community. The Rector of Mersin University dwelled on tortuosity of antidemocratic university systems…. »
(30 January) « Near East seeks justice in Ankara» and (19 February 2002) « The Honor Day Of Near East»... Before being on the top, roughly five years ago, the first stage of the process of becoming a public concern which was resistance against supression... Fundamentally, the incident focuses on the date of 22 September.
Lets terminate this issue-enough for now- with a last panoramic photo.
The most unforgettable moment of the day in Anatolia-Mersin was inquring look of coachmen at seventy academic members who were getting off the ship in black frocks with particoloured collars.
