Perfect organizer: mother, brother, best friend and psycologist

1606982_759957307349957_1483851322_n

There is a moment when you organize your first, second, third summer university and feel that you became so close with your participants as they are your own kids. You sacrifice your time, your nerves, even your personal life sometimes to make everything perfect and satisfy them. And at the same time you are ready to kill them all when they are asking you obvious questions.

We are all perfectionists and most of us are ready to die but organize the best Summer University ever so coffee and energizers become your best friends few days before and during the project. But you have to remember that physically you cannot control everything and stay awake 24 hours  7 days a week. Your health is more important than anything else.

When compulsory means interesting

werere

“Crazy experience”, “friends”, “best summer of my life”, “sun and beaches” and many other words will be said by a new member who just joined AEGEE to go to Summer University if you ask him how was it.

So, how can we help new members to become active? Or at least how can we help them to understand the mechanism of our actions while achieving our goals? I...

AGORA Patra – we were there!

v

Spring AGORA Patra 2014 marked a very important milestone on the Eastern Partnership Project’s timeline. By signing contract with AEGEE-Europe the project was officially launched. Remarkably, it’s the second time that EaP embarks on a mission of bridging Europe in AEGEE, as it is continuation of the accomplished first phase of the initative.

In order to introduce the project to the Network EaP team took an opportunity to hold a progress meeting.
