We are only a week away from the first academic day. As a tradition, the University of Ljubljana celebrates the Freshmen Welcome event at Kongresni trg in front of the University Rectorate. On Monday, 3 October 2016, at 4 p.m. you can attend an interesting and, most of all, fun sociable experience at one of the grandest squares in Ljubljana.

There will be a rich stage programme intertwining music, dancing and singing. It will feature Tilen Artač, Mažorete Laško, Jernej Kozan, the France Marolt Academic Folklore Group, dance couple Daniil Volkov and Ekaterina Novikova, Maestro Anton Volkov and Anja Furlan, the Trombone Connection from the Academy of Music of the University of Ljubljana and the Marina Mårtensson Trio.

Between 4 and 8 p.m. members of the University of Ljubljana will give insightful presentations of their study programmes and extracurricular activities at their stands. As many as 14 cultural organisations will distribute free tickets to University students to attend their shows and exhibitions. The number of these tickets is limited. 

A new feature of this year’s event is a photo stand where you can take photos with your friends and take them home as a memory of your first day at university. Furthermore, the event is this year joining also AIESEC, a youth organisation in which young people obtain leadership skills through practical experiences and exchanges, thus changing the world. The latter will prepare a special prize game in which six lucky winners will be given the opportunity to attend AIESEC internship abroad.

Upon the formal opening of the 2016/2017 academic year, starting at 5 p.m., all those present, and particularly freshmen, will be addressed by the Rector of the University of Ljubljana Prof. Dr. Ivan Svetlik, the Mayor of Ljubljana City Municipality Zoran Janković and the Chairman of the Student Council at the University of Ljubljana Jan Kukovec. Furthermore, the Deans of all 23 faculties and 3 academies of the University of Ljubljana will be present at the event.

The Freshmen Welcome event is expected to conclude at 8 p.m. with a concert by the CoverLover band. The most persistant students can then attend the welcome party at the Student Campus.


Everybody is kindly invited!
