University Square: Starting on “Day 0” this year


Legal “money laundering”, the making of book selfies, and Italian flavours: these are just a few of the things awaiting this year’s visitors to the event venue of the University of Debrecen at Campus Festival. “Egyetem tér” will be open from “Day 0” this year, at the usual place, near the entrance.

There is no other Hungarian festival with such close links to an institute of higher education as Campus. The faculties, institutes and departments of the university will receive an opportunity once again this year to participate at the country’s first “smart” festival, between 19 and 23 July. Almost 30 units of the university have responded to the call with their ideas for events, and the details are now being discussed with the successful applicants.

The physicists will place Rubik’s cube in the focus this year, but there will also be experiments with magnets and measurements taken with a variety of instruments. The Department of Ethnography will stage a programme on tales titled “Mese-mátka”, while the Italian Department will conjure up a little bit of Italy at Campus Festival, where they will await visitors with wonderful food and a playful quiz. The Institute of English and American Studies will once again invite members of the local American football team, and there will be an opportunity to try on their protective gear for a photo or two, as well as to try the sport.

The legal “money laundering” offered by the Department of Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry will be a novelty, while the giant university board game will return to Campus Festival after its huge success last year.

The faculties, institutes and departments will offer their events from “Day 0” at the third largest event venue of the festival, located close to the main entrance.
