Otrzęsiny – an initiation ceremony for newly recruited students
Otrzęsiny is a ritual known from time immemorial, taking place when one enters a new stage of life. Although it can be associated with unpleasant emotions, today it is just great fun.
Otrzęsiny ceremony organized by the Student Government of the University of Silesia is intended to familiarize freshman students, some of them shy and a bit lost in a new academic reality, with student culture and student events, which prove to be the best remedy for academic anxiety.
Year by year Otrzęsiny is becoming more and more popular among new members of the University of Silesia, for whom participation in the event is completely free.
