September 20, 2018

The 28th Opening Ceremony of CEU on the 14th of September saw speeches, notably by Liviu Matei (Provost/Pro-Rector and Professor of SPP), Zsolt Enyedi (Pro-Rector for Hungarian Affairs), and Michael Ignatieff (CEU President and Rector) who ended his speech with the statement,

"I look at you, and I look at our future, and it’s a wonderful future."

This was followed by Professor of Public Policy and Mundus MAPP Director, Agnes Batory who spoke about student and professor relations exclaiming that

"professors are not here to teach you, but to help you think for yourself”

as well as advising students to study hard but also to "venture out of the CEU bubble”.
