Festive celebration of the university 40 years

When the university invited staff, students, and the public to celebrate their 40th anniversary, the mood was indeed festive.

40 years back, the present, and 40 years in the future – the university’s jubilee day began with a discussion about the past, the present, and the future. Then it continued with guided tours, cake, and an exhibition of the textile educations’ 151 years in Borås. The festivities ended with a well-attended outdoor concert with Movits! at the Textile Fashion Center’s courtyard. 

The jubilee day was a joint arrangement between the University of Borås, the Student Union in Borås, Borås Stad, and Borås TME. During the same week, the new students had their introduction and around the city, the street festival No Limit was arranged.
