His Majesty the King attended this Monday morning at the opening of the academic year of the Catholic University of Louvain (UCLouvain). He arrived by bicycle, escorted by university officials. It’s a special start to the student year. This new school year celebrates the 50th anniversary of the laying of the foundation stone of the university on the territory of Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve. The King arrived with 50 students on bicycles, dressed in a jersey representing each year since the university was built.
The sovereign was greeted by a guard of honor formed by the students representing the various circles present on the university campus.
