I’m the coordinator of the work of all SUCT. It means setting objectives for the year, deadlines and checking that everything is done according to them, properly and on time. If there are problems inside or outside the team I should cooperate with the team and fix them.

It’s a constant work: I should be always reachable and ready give suggestions and answers...

Why evaluation is important?


Although it’s the first day of autumn, there are some Summer Universities that still continue! The last one, organized by AEGEE-Leon, «On the Way of St. James vol.4: Looking to the south», AEGEE-Istanbul and AEGEE-Izmir «TURCOPERATION: SUltans on the Way» and the very last one by AEGEE-Tekirdag, «Survivor in Thrace» that will end on 8th of September. But there is something that better not to put off till tomorrow, or the last day of the deadline – evaluation of Summer University by participants.


This is how organizers ask participants to evaluate Summer University. 

Summer University Coordination Team would like to explain why it is so important for us, for organizers and for participants as well!

So, talking about us, SUCT, it’s quite easy – our main task is to check and help...

Data Privacy within AEGEE Explained

During Agora Rhein-Neckar the Agora requested the Comité Directeur to investigate the data privacy of our members within AEGEE through a motion. Because the Mediation Commission is the Data Privacy Ombudsman as is defined in the Corpus Iuridicum, the Comtié Directeur cooperated with the Mediation Commission to investigate the situation, look at the current pitfalls, and propose changes to further improve the Data Privacy within AEGEE. Here will try to explain what Data Privacy is, why it is important for you and all other members, after which the basic idea behind the policy is explained, then the legal structure and finally an overview and some examples of who can view your personal data.

This document is not the actual proposal but just servers as background information.

Perfect participant: how to become one?

So, you are participant this time. First time or not, but these advice are useful for everyone!

Remember that all organizers are volunteers

Despite the fact that participants are paying the fee in order to attend Summer University, there is no such thing as salary for organizers. All money is paid to cover the costs of lodging, transport, food, entrances to museums and clubs and other things.  The only thing they will receive in return is experience which is priceless and your personal evaluation.

When it is your first Summer University you might be surprised by the fact that participants spend almost all the time with the group...

Perfect organizer: mother, brother, best friend and psycologist


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. It’s possible to have a rest during SU...

When compulsory means interesting


“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. For sure, any Summer University is an amazing opportunity to explore new countries, culture, traditions, meet new friends and have fun. Summer University project is the most popular and the oldest one in AEGEE and there are no doubts that once you go to SU your life might be changed. However, when summer is over and participants recover from post-SU syndrome, sometimes not many fresh members can say what’s AEGEE and what does it strive for.

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...
