Let us inform you of the continuing preparations for the UP Alumni Reunion on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the Restoration of Palacký University Olomouc. We appreciate all the positive feedback that you have given us regarding this project.
The tentative programme is listed below. Negotiations are underway every day in order to ensure further activities as well as benefits for you, our alumni who will take part in the event.
The UP Alumni Reunion is conceived as an informal meeting with people and places that you have known during your studies. On Friday, September 9, 2016, every UP faculty will open its gates and rooms for you, your relatives, and friends. In the evening, restaurants, bars, and clubs will be reserved for UP alumni.
We aim to address as many UP alumni as possible and to create ideal conditions for such a reunion, accompanied with interesting cultural events. We would like to lay the foundation for the development of a sound, mutually beneficial community enriched by regular meetings.
We sincerely appreciate the attention you have given to Palacký University.
