here to hear Gaudeamus Igitur
Doc.Dr Marie Cerna promoted all new pedagogical masters.
She gave all the new masters a blue velvet tube that probably
contained the Master’s Certification. On her chest
were golden chain with medal that only university and faculty
leaders are honoured to keep. Organs played famous music
called Gaudeamus Igitur. In the promotion there were also
mean and king like looking men who probably were sometimes
guards and nowadays more or less ceremonial leaders. They
had nice looking sceptres that were touched by all the new
masters. Even though this ceremony was in Czech that we
can understand very little, we enjoyed being there. It is
really nice tradition.
