Cycle tours were attended by students, educators and employees of the Faculty of Pharmacy of the University of Szeged. 50 participants cycled 45 kilometers on 6th October.
‘The idea of cycling was born with the intention of team building. Building a relationship between students and educators was the main goal but it is also important that new connections within the student community can be built on such an event’ – Dr. Dezső Csupor said. The Vice Dean of the Faculty of Pharmacy of the University of Szeged said that while the Faculty is one of the smallerst wings and the students know technically every instructor, it is quite different to develop a lecture, practice or exam interaction than to talk unconsciously during a cycle tour. The university hierarchy does not apply at this time, which is good for the establishment and deepening of relationships.
‘There was a further motivation to find an opportunity for community building that is in line with the concept of a health-conscious faculty. This year, several initiatives are being implemented in this spirit, for example, towards the end of the year, we plan to carry out a Faculty Health Day,’ the Vice Dean of the Faculty explained.
‘50 participants attended the even: students, PhD students (including foreigners), staff, trainers mixed. The 45 km distance was met by everyone. The route led to Szeged via the Mélypont (the Deepest Point in Hungary), Tiszasziget through Kübekháza and then through Szőreg. Participants at the Kübecker Manufaktur at BENU dr. With the courtesy of Kaiser Pharmacies, they made up for the lost calories with a lunch.
‘This was the first tour, but based on the number of participants and the positive feedbacks it was certainly not the last. In spring, we will grab our bikes again, hopefully with a similar success’ said Csupor Dezső.
