During the academic year students will have an opportunity to attend many events organized by Vilnius University and each faculty separately. Students can join different lectures leaded by local and invited professors, concerts, cinema evenings and so on. However there are two events that shouldn’t be missed by any student.
Student Procession on the 1st of September
No matter if you belong to the biggest or the smallest faculty of Vilnius University, the 1st of September is time to show off! Experience the enthusiasm and the vibe of the enormous crowd of Vilnius University students and join them in this crazy procession from the Parliament Palace to the Central Building of Vilnius University: dozens of slogans, hundreds of flags, posters and thousands of students’ smiles! Your country flag, photo camera and good mood is a must in this event!
Days of faculties
Every faculty tries to show the best of it by organizing a few days or even a week of various events once a year. Have you heard of Dinas, a dinosaur, who is 18 meters long and weighs about 10 tones? He is a mascot of the Faculty of Physics and every year he is in the first line of a procession from Faculty of Physics to the Faculty of Philology! Days of faculties enable students to participate in contests, guest lectures, conferences, orientation games and many more activities. Take a chance to see a rock opera that is created and performed by students.
