What alumni say about us

Alumni stories: Marlena Wróbel Alumni stories: Marlena Wróbel
I remember my studies with great fondness. (...) First of all, I enjoyed the studies themselves and the constantly growing sense that I could see and understand more. Sociology provides a lot of interesting knowledge. Secondly, I met my husband during my studies (he graduated from in the same subject), and as you know, love turns your world upside down. :) Thirdly, we were both members of the Student Body, which involved working on a number of interesting projects, trips, events and meeting new people all the time.
