Dear Sir or Madam,
Thank you for the participation in the MUB Academic Community Online Vote on the name of the building at ul. Mickiewicza 2B (former Branicki Orangery).
In the Online Vote we received 658 correct unique votes, of which 78.4% belonged to our University's Students and PhD Students, 18.1% to Employees and 3.5% to Guests.
Collegium Floridum - 64,3%
Collegium Inventorum - 10,3%
Collegium Iuvenum - 25,4%.
The goal of the Vote was to select a new name of the building at ul. Mickiewicza 2B which would refer to the history of the place and the tradition of naming our academic buildings as "Collegium".
We selected 3 propositions, among which the one with the most votes will be presented to the MUB Senate:
Collegium Floridum (Latin) - the Flowered College (English).
The name refers to both: the history of this place and the present day of the Medical University of Bialystok. In the 18th century, the building served as the Orangery that was part of the Branicki residences. It was a representative place, filled with exotic flowers. The name "Collegium Floridum" will also reflect the current state of the University, which is constantly flourishing.
Collegium Inventorum (Latin) - College of Inventors (English).
The term refers to the slogan of the Medical University of Bialystok "The discoveries are born here!" Our University is a place where innovative ideas are created, new solutions are implemented, and scientists actively patent and commercialize their discoveries.
Collegium Iuvenum (Latin) - Youth College (English).
The name refers to the Center for the Prevention of Health and Social Effects of Aging, which will be located in the building in question. The name is also a nod towards the students, who are the future, according to the jubilee slogan "The future belongs to us!" It will also be the youngest Collegium on the MUB Campus.
