Student Recruitment Office and Alumni Relations Office Host Record Number of Pre-departure Orientation Sessions

This summer, CEU’s Student Recruitment Office, in cooperation with the Alumni Relations Office, scheduled a record number of 47 pre-departure orientation sessions around the world.

These informal social gatherings were hosted by the local Alumni and CEU’s Local Area Representatives, and offered an opportunity to the newly accepted students to learn about CEU from other participants. Held usually at cafés and pubs, the events represented a hub for former and current CEU students to welcome new people into the community. Information on getting ready for departure to Budapest, life in the city and CEU, as well as personal stories and experience, were shared with the new students.

In total, 39 sessions were held, on 5 different continents, and hosting hundreds of members of the CEU community.
