Happy Easter!

One of the best aspects of studying internationally at a foreign university is the opportunity to experience the diversity of cultures around the world. A fun way to enjoy such unique parts of a culture is to celebrate a country’s holidays with locals which is what I did last Easter. I traveled to a Hungarian friend’s family home in Szarvas, a small Hungarian town of around 17,000 inhabitants.

Valentine's day

Many stories give it various origins, Valentine's Day is celebrated all over the world on the 14th of February. All of those stories which are somehow connected to Valentine's Day have one thing in common: love and honesty towards your loved ones.

Straight outta Arfica…

On the last day of January 2014, I, a 17th year old fresh high school graduate embarked on a journey to Hungary to study for the first time. As a jolly young boy, I was excited about the adventure of leaving my home country to pursue my studies abroad. 
I had a smooth overnight flight from Abuja Nigeria to Frankfurt Germany. I couldn’t sleep due to anxiety; I had a thousand thoughts going through my head top of which were missing my family back home and excitement towards the next chapter of my life. We safely landed at Frankfurt and I had to find my connecting flight.

Volunteer experiences - AIESEC

Just over a year ago, I volunteered in Patras Greece with AIESEC, an international non-profit organization. Since its initial founding in 1948, this program has stretched across more than 114 countries and connected with more than 7,000 partner organizations. For these reasons, AIESEC offers an abundance of global opportunities for young adults to volunteer, intern, or teach while addressing at least one of UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Capitalizing on your talents in the University

In university, it is easy to be bombarded by school work and not have enough time to do the things you love. It is easy to forget what we once enjoyed in this sea of knowledge that seems endless. At the University of Pécs, it is not different either. During the semester students are very much busy and engrossed in their studies. Some of the students have however not let their school work deter them from practicing their hobbies and even monetize their gifts.
