Juwenalia Śląskie 2023 - The Grand Colorful Student Parade and Key Handover to the City Gates

On May 23, 2023, Juwenalia Śląskie 2023 officially kicked off with the Grand Colorful Parade, starting from our University and passing through the streets of Katowice to the Powstańców Śląskich Park. In accordance with tradition, the Mayor of Katowice, Marcin Krupa, officially handed over the keys to the city gates to the students. Representatives from the city authorities and higher education institutions in Katowice, including our University's Rector, Prof. Celina M. Olszak, Ph.D., D.Sc., conveyed their best wishes to the students.

The Grand Colorful Parade traditionally made its way through the city streets, reaching the Powstańców Śląskich Park, where representatives of the city and higher education institutions awaited the students.

"It's wonderful to see all of you smiling, full of energy, and balancing education and learning with having fun. On this beautiful day in May, we are delighted to be here with you, and these few days belong to you entirely! Enjoy yourselves safely and stay healthy, and return to your universities. I am thrilled to see such a significant presence from the University of Economics in Katowice during these Juwenalia festivities. Moreover, I am incredibly proud that our students choose to study in Katowice, precisely in the European City of Science 2024!" emphasized our Rector

Afterwards, by saying the phrase "From this moment on, you become the hosts of the city," Mayor Marcin Krupa officially handed over the keys to the city gates to the students.
