Mendel University celebrates its 100th anniversary

18. 2. 2019 -

Mendel University in Brno is celebrating its 100th anniversary. To mark this milestone, the university has prepared a year-long series of events and activities.

Among the main events is Staff Week, which will take place at the university in October and include classes, workshops, and a Go-Abroad Fair. Representatives of our partner universities from other countries were also invited to Staff Week so that we could all celebrate the anniversary together. The Faculty of Forestry and Wood Technology will host a similar event called Silver Network. Last but not least, there will be the Student Reunion of the Century, which will take place on 15 June. Participants can look forward to an extensive programme including a tour of the campus and a musical performance. New anniversary publications are in the pipeline and the university is also using this opportunity to redesign its logo. Since January, an anniversary tram with the new university logo has been transporting passengers through the streets of Brno, the seat of the university. To top it all off, the university has launched a line of anniversary beers to pay tribute to the long tradition of the Czech brewing industry, particularly as brewing is one of the courses taught at Mendel University.
