Everybody was surprised after the first rumours, that it will be a hungarian university in this little town. A lot of people have doubted: in this town?  In 2000 the news has been verified: the Board of Trustees of the Sapientia Foundation founded by the eight leaders of the Hungarian Historic Churches in Transylvania decided to establish the Hungarian University of Transylvania. It is open to qualified students of any nationality who meet admissions requirements.

Nowadays the  Sapientia -“Sapi”- has its traditions, like the graduation, what’s mood is unique in the univerities’s circles.

It doesn’t need words just relax and look on the following photos:

  • First step is the ecumenical worship for the all last-year-students, in the church at Csíksomlyó. It’s a beautiful procession in ethnical clothes. Look!
    First steps from the University

All students wear  theire locations’ ethnical clothesCsík-Chair‘s skirt and vest is  vertically striped with red and black colours. The apron is simply or embroideried with flower  or jaggy, like the shirt’s collar and coff. For it come the regular hard-stemmed szekler boots. The boys are wearing minimal-decorated  szekler tights (a kind of throuser) with szekler shirt and -black vest.

This ecumenical mission is unique, other universities haven’t any.

The graduation’s last step, like at other universities, is the diploma delivery, with guests like the town’s mayor Kálmán Ráduly-Róbert, Hargita county’s mayor, Csaba Borboly and the institute’s leaders. Everybody in togas and hat-it was a non-recurring experience.
