This time, the "100 Years of the Catholic University of Lublin" exhibition, dedicated to the history of the John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin, was held in St. Joseph's Basilica in Milwaukee (Wisconsin), which is a unique place for the Polish American community.

An international youth group visit our University

On the 22nd of October, KUL hosted an international group of young people from primary and secondary schools. Students from Turkey, Italy, Greece, Romania and Poland, who participate in the Erasmus program, had been with us for a week. The Open University of KUL invited the guests to take part in workshops on intercultural integration alongside with Polish students and teachers from the Primary School no. 16 in Lublin. Such visits became our tradition. It was already the third such meeting at our University, and certainly it was not the last. The next group of young learners will come to us in April.

The first Friday of October was a day of a special event, namely the 4th International Day at KUL. It was the final part of the Adaptation Week Classes for foreign students, which at the same time provided a warm welcome to all foreigners who study  at KUL. Students also had the chance to learn more about some of the entities that are the parts of our University and which offer students help and advice on different fields. Among them are: The Admission Office, International Relations Office, The Department of Foreign Languages, Polish-Chinese Centre, The School of Polish Language and Culture, Student Council at KUL, Lublin Coalition for Integration, Academic Ministry  of the Catholic University of Lublin and the Open University. After the meeting with members of the University leadership team, foreign students who started their adventure with KUL a few years ago told about their experience. Later our new students from different parts of the world had the opportunity to test their knowledge of Polish culture in a quiz and learn traditional Polish dances. Finally, our guests could taste Polish food. I hope you had been with us. If not, do not worry. The International Day at KUL became our tradition, so I hope you will be there next year.
