Some CEU donors got to meet the students their generosity supports at a very special on-campus reception, November 28. See photos.
The CEU community is hungry to give back.
That's the takeaway from this year's 5th annual Bake It > Make It Forward fundraiser, held at CEU on Nov. 27. In kicking off the university's first-ever Philanthropy Week, community members raised a record 170,000 HUF ($638) by day's end in support of two great causes.
Give thanks. Pay it forward. Repeat. That’s what the CEU community in Budapest and beyond did recently during the university’s first-ever Philanthropy Week.
CEU alumni, students and faculty were among the speakers and organizers of the conference entitled “Towns as Living Places: Static and Dynamic Aspects of Medieval and Early Modern Urban Communities” held in Vienna October 4-6.

Even though the study of the Middle Ages seems to have little in common with environmental policies, the interdisciplinary nature of the Medieval Studies Department enables alumni to get involved in the study of long-term ecological processes and thus contribute to understanding of present climatic fluctuations.
