After a two-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Campus Day will take place again this year and its programme is truly packed. On Thursday 19 May, you will have the opportunity to visit the normally inaccessible parts of the University Campus in Bohunice, take part in sports tournaments and meet students and staff from the faculties present at the campus.
“After two years, we will try to bring the campus faculties together again and cement the ties between them. The Campus Day will be a worthy addition to the academic programme of Dies academicus, supplementing it with social and sporting activities,” said Martin Komenda, representative of the organising team.
A floorball match between the campus faculties’ staff and the employees of the Rector’s Office will be a novelty in this year’s programme. The match will take place in the ball sports hall from 14:30 and fans can also look forward to an engaging accompanying programme, including a raffle. The main prize to be won is a jersey signed by Radek Kučeřík, an HC Kometa Brno ice hockey player.
As usual, various sports competitions and volleyball and badminton tournaments will be taking place from the morning onward, and visitors will also be able to play pétanque and table tennis, as well as participate in self-defence courses and various physical exercises. You need to register in advance if you want to participate in the sports programme. Should there be any free spaces left, it will also be possible to register on-site on the day of the event.
Due to limited capacity, only staff members and students of the campus faculties (Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Science, Faculty of Pharmacy, Faculty of Sports Studies and CEITEC MU) will be able to participate in the sports programme. Registration will also be open to members of the Faculty of Economics and Administration, which is a guest of this year’s event.
The Campus Day event will include an interactive sightseeing tour of the campus, which can be joined at any time between 10:00-14:00. On your way, you will stop at several places where you will gradually learn interesting information about the individual facilities and try out activities related to their work – for example, in the Faculty of Medicine Simulation Centre you will learn how alcohol affects the human body’s stability or whether you would be able to save someone’s life. After completing the task, you will be given instructions on where to go next on your journey through the campus.
In the afternoon, visitors will have the opportunity to join a social gathering in the outdoor areas of the campus between buildings C05, C10 and C12. The winners of each sports tournament will be announced and there will also be musical performances and refreshments. Please visit the Campus Day website for more details and the full programme.
