The summer semester started at Palacký University traditionally with Academic Week. Its imaginary highlight was the UP Representative Ball, which returned to the programme of university events after two years.
The university opened classrooms, laboratories, lecture halls, gymnasiums, canteens, dormitories, library, in short, all the workplaces and places that a student needs for his/her student life during his/her studies. And because there is nothing like a shared experience, students, teachers and staff were available as information providers to the high school students and their parents, who often formed a very inquisitive entourage. They were well disposed, smiling and patient. They introduced the fields of study, life at "their" faculty and beyond, and answered every question, even the least likely. For example, after whom the dormitories are named.
