European University students lead exciting and active lives, with social, cultural and educational activities filling their agendas.
Each year, the EU student body elects representatives to the Student Board. The Student Board publishes newsletters, and organizes a busy calendar of social, sporting, charity and cultural events.
The Student Board meets regularly and is an integral part of life at EU campuses.
GUEST LECTURERS' SEMINARS
In these seminars, experts interact with EU students on important issues of today's business world. In addition to regular career seminars, European University also invites business leaders to discuss diverse sectors of business including banking, negotiation, international arbitration and market research. These sessions promote students' curiosity, deliver detailed information and offer practical, informed opinions.
Students are taken on a regular basis to visit selected national or international companies. In this way, students can obverse how theoretical concepts learned in class can be applied to real business situations. Assignments relevant to the visit are given in class and students are required to present oral and written reports.
Study tours are designed to give students experience in the global corporate business environment. During a 1–2 week trip, students visit selected corporations, commercial centers, governmental and trade organizations around the world, where they observe a variety of industries and meet with management. Students are required to prepare project reports based on their study tour experiences.
Each EU campus organizes many different social activities for their students. For example, each year we organize:
This takes place at the very beginning of each semester and gives new and current students the opportunity to get to know each other.
Before the winter study break students meet for this popular traditional get-together.
EU organizes specially themed events such as Mexican, Spanish, Irish and Brazilian nights.
Ski / Snowboard Weekend
Once a year EU organizes a ski/snowboard weekend at resorts such as Gstaad, Verbier, Crans Montana, Zermatt or Andorra. Non-skiers and snowboarders are also welcome as these locations offer a wide variety of other activities.
Cultural tours and City Breaks
Taking full advantage of EU's international campus network, students go on day trips and city breaks to experience cultural events and gain further understanding of national identities.
EU students actively support international charities with gala evenings and other fundraising activities. Event management and donations are organized by dedicated members of the Student Board Association on each campus.
