Did You See CEU's Talent at the Open Mic?

Did the end of the semester leave our energy drained? Did the pile of papers and assignments kill the creativity or passion of the CEU community? The answer is a resounding No!

Central European University has a lot to offer, both in terms of academia and a great sense of community. However, there are some amazing things at CEU that go way beyond these two. We are all aware that CEU just inaugurated two state of the art facilities right in the heart of Budapest.
