The UAB launches a new way of celebrating being part of the UAB community
The UAB launches a new way of celebrating the UAB community with a festive, cultural activity on 5 October to bring the whole community together and celebrate our university.
“La Comunitària UAB” is the name chosen for a new way of celebrating the UAB community. Starting this academic year, the first event will be held on 5 October with the objective of bringing together the entire university community and celebrating the UAB. These cultural and festive activities will include discovering all of the assocations within the UAB's eldirectori which offer daily activities on campus. The objective is to foster the interaction between members of the UAB and offer information on the different groups created for students to participate in, in addition to their other university activities.
