One of the most popular integration way is travelling, so on the 24th of October the students went on a trip to Vilnius. This trip has already become a tradition, as it is organized every winter semester for new incoming students. The group had a chance to experience local culture and learn about the historical connotations between Poland and Lithuania. Despite bad weather students visited the most significant places like Gates of Dawn, Hill of Three Crosses, St. Peter and St. Paul’s Church, Vilnius University and Uzupio –students’ and artists’ district, the most colorful one in the city.
Even though the trip was very short and intensive it was a great chance to integrate for the whole group.
