"I am afraid the world has diverged from the trail of truth and love. Lies and hatred are on the rise. Given these challenges, introspection and reflection are needed," said Kahanec in his opening speech. 

"I am sure you have a mission. You are motivated, you care about social justice, you want to make the world a better place. But I have to warn you – that all is a wonderful start, but not enough. What I expect from you is to be ever most inspired, hard-working, and active citizen of CEU and the Department to empower yourself to help put the world back on the trail of truth and love," he added.

We wish all our students, faculty, and staff an inspiring, successful, and healthy academic year!
