„We are witnessing a unique event, which will be recorded irrevocably in the Chronicles of the Faculty of Science of the Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice. The graduates took centre stage as they, after 50 years, have returned in front of the promotional college of their Alma Mater, to again confirm that their professional and personal lives are forever connected with the study of natural sciences, mathematics and informatics, and that they are quite proud of this fact. This moment represents a significant milestone for the faculty as well, which shows that it has stood the test of time and has survived a period which can be evaluated not just through plans and impressions, but through objective quantitative and qualitative factors“. With these words the Dean of the faculty, Assoc. prof. Gabriel Semanišin, addressed the first graduates of the Master’s program of the Faculty of Science, on the 26th of April 2017, who spoke the „Spondeo ac polliceor” vow 50 years ago.
