In commemoration of the one-year anniversary of our esteemed Welcome Office, a notable event unfolded on October 31. This momentous celebration took place within the halls of the International Cooperation Division, winding through the corridors of the Welcome Office, and culminating in a dedicated conference room.
The atmosphere resonated with the lively presence of student groups, who not only reflected on the achievements of the past year but, more notably, engaged in meaningful discussions, sharing personal experiences, and fostering connections. This evolving sense of fellowship led to the exchange of contacts, giving rise to newfound friendships destined to endure beyond the confines of academia.
The thoughtfully devised programme orchestrated by our dedicated Welcome Office team addressed the diverse audience of students, academic staff, and esteemed colleagues within our institution and beyond. Central to the proceedings was the introduction of an enriching video presentation, "Olomouc - Cradle of Education," unveiling the university to our international student body. In collaboration with Palacký University Press and the Faculty of Arts, Department of History, an exhibition was inaugurated, initially showcased in New York City during the 450th-anniversary celebration of Palacký University Olomouc. The exhibition, currently displayed at Vodární 6 near our Welcome Office, meticulously portrays the inception of our esteemed institution from its founding in 1573 to the present year, 2023.
If you have not had the opportunity to experience it firsthand, we extend a cordial invitation for you to do so.
Our anniversary celebration also served as a nexus for esteemed colleagues and directors from diverse university departments, fostering an environment conducive to the exchange of experiences and the cultivation of connections between students and their mentors. The bonds forged within the premises of our Welcome Office between students and other members of the university community are held in high esteem.
