Cheers to Brno students

While it is comforting to know that universities around the world are busy with the serious business of educating the next generation,  it is also fun to consider some of the novel ideas in education. For example, in the Social Studies Library at Masaryk Univeristy, Brno, the problem of mobile phones in the library has been reduced by offering a special ‘Mobil Box’.

I discovered another quirky idea on the last day of my Erasmus Libraries week when the centre of the city seemed to be taken over by students in groups dressed in all manner of outfits — brides’ dresses, soldiers, flowerpots. They were blowing horns, carrying baskets and politely asking for money donations.  This colourful student in the photo explained that they were students sitting exams and they were asking for ‘party money’.  I  couldn’t think of a happier way to get rid of my loose change on my last day. Cheers to the students of Brno.
