Yesterday, the Kodeljevo sports park was filled with students participating in the first Festival of Extracurricular Activities of the University of Ljubljana. The highlight of the day was a football match between the University of Ljubljana and the University of Maribor, which was held for the fourth time, and the team from Maribor took home the perpetual trophy for a second time.

The day was mostly dedicated to sports, with university championships taking place throughout the day and with many extracurricular activities available to students after 2 pm. The students were able to participate in workshops in ultimate Frisbee, slackline, baseball, rugby, the "strelastika" board game and acroyoga. Language tandem was organized for lovers of foreign languages through workshops with Erasmus students from the University of Ljubljana. The educational extracurricular programme from career centers included a workshop entitled "The CV Clinic" where the participants received a range of feedback on their CVs. The participants could also observe a guided debate on the theme of alcohol consumption at sporting events, which was organized by the Debate club from the University of Ljubljana and the Debate club of the University of Maribor. Representatives of the Student Council of the University of Ljubljana were able to participate in the discussion as well.
