Traditional barbecue at university campus marks new academic year

Students from the faculties located on the Bohunice campus (Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Science, Faculty of Pharmacy and Faculty of Sports Studies) gathered on Tuesday 10 October for an informal Deans’ Barbecue. There was grilled food, sports activities and lots of student socialising.

Four faculties of Masaryk University are located on the Bohunice campus.

“I think we will all enjoy the evening and it will be a pleasant opportunity to talk about informal matters,” said Martin Repko, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, at the beginning of the event, which is always held on campus at the beginning of the academic year. He greeted the attendees together with the Rector of Masaryk University Martin Bareš and other deans – David Vetchý (PHARM), Tomáš Kašparovský (SCI) and Jan Cack (SPORT).

The Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, Martin Repko, also welcomed the attendees in an informal atmosphere.

In addition to the bountiful refreshments, a game was prepared for the students as they walked around the campus answering questions. If they answered correctly, they could solve a mystery and win a prize. Students from the Faculty of Sports Studies provided music and small sports activities. Participants could play table tennis or petanque. Student societies were also involved and prepared an interactive programme.

Students and employees were able to take part in a number of small sporting activities.

“I am very grateful to meet my friends from the Faculty of Medicine, Science and Pharmacy, as well as students from other faculties of Masaryk University. I feel very honoured that our faculty can work in such an inspiring environment,” said Jan Cacek. At the end of the event, he and the other deans answered questions submitted anonymously by students. These ranged from informal questions about their favourite beer or the ride on the new tram line to Bohunice, to questions about how the faculties work and how they use space on the university campus.

Members of the Pharmacy Students' Union also took part in the programme.
