CEU Community Come Together for Philanthropy Week

December 12, 2017

On November 27, on its fifth anniversary, Philanthropy Day became Philanthropy Week, full of exciting events everyone could get involved in. I had the chance to be part of Bake it >> Make it >>Forward, a very special event that encouraged the members of the CEU community to show off their baking skills by preparing sweet or savory treats or national specialties; and to share their skills which could be useful to their community, such as fixing laptops and more. (This was a twist from last year Bake it forward!)

Philanthropy week, an expanded version of Philanthropy day which has been held annually at CEU, emphasized the importance of philanthropy and expressing gratitude to the people who support CEU.

The Open Mic, which is an annual event jointly hosted by the CEU Student Union, Alumni Relations Office, the Student Leadership and Service Office, this year was organized by the Alumni Scholarship Recipients (ASRs) – me and Fatih. It gathered more than one hundred people – staff, alumni and students – who love art in its various forms.

Where to Find Halal Food in Budapest

October 30, 2017

I was asking my friends studying at CEU about CEU and its social life before I came here. They kept pointing out the ‘diversity’ and the co-existence of ‘different’ cultures in the University. I tried to understand why they kept talking about diversity. Since I started studying at CEU, I’ve seen how amazing diversity at this university really is, and how big a part it has to play in the university culture. Moreover, I’ve realized that I am also from a ‘different’ culture because I have to explain to my friends what ‘halal food’ is when I say, “I only eat halal food.”
