The Faculty organizes the first Diamond graduation
November at the Faculty of Science will be marked mainly by meeting with our alumni. The Silver graduation will take place on Saturday, November 4, the Golden graduation and the first Diamond graduation will be held on Friday, November 24. The first alumni of the Faculty who graduated in 1957 and who took part in the first Golden graduation will meet at this occasion.
"Golden graduates themselves have initiated the Diamond graduation expressing their interest in meeting each other again. Therefore, we decided to arrange their reunion 60 years after their graduation. We wish to show our oldest graduates that we appreciate them and that we are glad they still keep thinking of our Faculty, " said Josef Molnár, Vice-Dean for External Cooperation.
The previous Dean of the Faculty Juraj Ševčík decided to organize the first Golden graduation inspired by golden wedding celebration after 50 years of marriage. He wanted to create an opportunity for our alumni to meet again as well as to get into contact with them and initiate possible cooperation throughout the year. But that was only the beginning.
"Drawing inspiration from prestigious universities, which organize reunions of former students 25 years after their graduation, in 2009 I decided to hold Silver graduation as well. Silver graduates have been working in their respective fields for about 25 years, often holding management positions. It is easier to get in touch with them and discuss possible cooperation, " added Molnár.
According to him, these graduation ceremonies are very successful, which is illustrated by the fact that our Faculty set an example to other faculties of UP as well as other universities. "It is a great way to allow people to meet their former colleagues, and the Faculty on the other hand may develop further cooperation and partnership. Our database of graduates is constantly extending, our former students contact us to give their current details. However, there is still more work to be done," concluded Molnár.
The database of graduates of the Faculty of Science contains over 15 thousand people. We have managed to update more than half of the contacts.
