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.
