Picnic for secondary school graduates took place on the Igrowa Meadow
Picnic for secondary school graduates took place on the Igrowa Meadow where candidates could get to know the University and their future colleagues.
A city game, competitions, a climbing wall, a barbecue and cinema - these attractions were waiting for secondary school graduates who came to the Igrowa Meadow on Monday on the 5th of July.
“We wanted to show future students what the University looks like and what we do. We also wanted the secondary school graduates to get to know their future colleagues and find out what studying is like, what the specific character of a given faculty is like, and whether the faculty they have chosen is what they want to do," says Dawid Mordarski, President of the Student Government of the Silesian University of Technology.
During the event, secondary school graduates could get to know the campus of the Silesian University of Technology by participating in a city game and, at the stand of the Study Services Centre, they could learn about recruitment procedures and the majors offered by the university.
“I came here because I am thinking about studying at the Silesian University of Technology. I wanted to see what it is like here. The University has a very good opinion. I heard a lot of good things from last year's secondary school graduates who got here, and also from the teachers," says Zosia, a graduate of one of the secondary schools in Gliwice
Karolina from Zabrze is also considering studying at the University. “The Silesian University of Technology offers courses that I am interested in, such as mechatronics or automatics. Besides, I live nearby” says Karolina.
The picnic was also attended by a group of secondary school graduates from around city of Cieszyn. “We came to this picnic to spend time together, get to know the city and the campus of the Silesian University of Technology” says Krzysztof. “I would like to study at this University, because I heard a lot of good things about it, besides many of my friends study here” he adds.
“I have chosen the Silesian University of Technology because I also heard good opinions about it, besides, my brother recommended me to study here" says another graduate, Filip.
Since the outbreak of the pandemic, this is the first outdoor event on the University campus, with a sanitary regime of course.
“Last year we could not meet, even the Igry event was held online. That is why we wanted to do something for future students, but also for our first-year students who have not yet had the opportunity to study full-time at our University. We also wanted to familiarise them with the tradition of films on the Igrowa Meadow” says Katarzyna Ptaszyńska from the Student Government of the Silesian University of Technology.
The Picnic ended with a joint barbecue and films screening.
