Every year starting in May and continuing for about a week, our students celebrate their annual festival colloquially called ‘Bachanalia’. The opening day is very significant as students formally receive a key to the city from the president of Zielona Gora. This means that for three days the city is symbolically ‘given to’ University students.
First day of the celebration is also famous for its colourful parade, where students get crazy with their vivid imagination and dress- up as characters form e.g. ancient Rome, jungle, or Disney! In these days the programme of the celebration is fulfilled with various cultural activities, mainly entertainment and sport events, but also commonly known ‘chill-out’ in the form of a barbecue, where thousands of students gather together and enjoy their free- time. In the evening there are concerts of well-known Polish pop-stars set up in an open space! Check the facebook.
