Dancing the Erasmus away

             If you ever wondered what's new in Timisoara and how international students cope with their Erasmus life, you have come upon the right page. We have your answer: on June 3rd, in West University of Timisoara's main hallway, our Erasmus students together with our volunteers managed to promote the mobility and the idea of interculturalism with some dance moves. The Biggest Erasmus Flashmob happened that day, and we had a blast!

It all has started with the sound of violine played by former ESN Timisoara's President and present ESN Romania's Vice President -- George Apostolescu, while our choreographer and friend Mohamed Irkousi (a.k.a Hamade)started to show off his contemporary dance moves on Avicii's Hey Brother song that you could hear in the background. Other students began to join Hamade and thus our flashmob has begun. It might sound easy, but we actually had some work to do to make this happen.

         The first one to come with the idea was our Vice President - Claudia Petruse, who fought hard to make this the best flashmob ever. Her idea was supported by White Steps Dance School and Hamade, who taught us the moves and was by our side at every single rehearsal out of 5 we had in total. At the very event there were aproximately 30 persons who took part in the flashmob -- Erasmus students, a couple of dancers from White Steps, and our ESN Timisoara volunteers. The aim of this flashmob was to promote and encourage the Erasmus+ mobility, as well as interculturalism. The evnt was also supported by West University of Timisoara's Department of International Relations.

We are thankful to every single person that supported and helped! Cheers!

New volunteers in ESN Timisoara

Luna Septembrie a fost una fructuoasă pentru campania noastră de recrutare. După două săptămâni în care am urmărit să îi încurajăm pe cei interesați să aplice pentru a intra în familia ESN Timișoara prin testimoniale scrise de voluntarii mai vechi, prin prezentarea beneficiilor pentru dezvoltarea personală și profesională de care un voluntar se bucură o dată trecut de perioada de probă, mulți doritori s-au arătat. Am fost foarte bucuroși să îi primim cu brațele deschise. Entuziaștii voluntari ne-au prezentat ideile lor prin care pot contribui la creșterea familiei ESN Timișoara și s-au implicat în activități precum Welcome Week și prezentarea informațiilor necesare pentru studenții interesați să aplice pentru o mobilitate Erasmus+ la standul din holul Universității de Vest din Timișoara. Tema recrutării din Septembrie a fost „ESN te duce în teambuilding”. Ne dorim foarte mult ca noii voluntari să înțeleagă mai bine cum funcționează ESN și, mai ales, să ne cunoască pe noi mai bine, să n…

Volunteers- the core of ESN Timisoara

In order to grow stronger and to bring a vivid impact on our activities, ESN Timișoara needs an amazing fuel for its engine. This part is represented by our lovely volunteers who took part in a three days training event at Belinț, near Timișoara. This event was financed by the Erasmus+ Student and Alumni Association (ESAA) and it was held between the 20th and 22nd of October and brought together the volunteers of ESN Timișoara, new and experienced members, aimed to create a highly performing skilled team, with team members motivated and keen to develop themselves and others, using presentations, sessions and workshops.
 Our volunteers had the possibility to acquire new skills, to learn about ESN values, to boost their creativity and to share with the rest of the team their experiences. Bringing them together does not only offer them the possibility to build a solid base for their knowledge as ESNers but also to become a team. They worked together in fulfilling certain tasks, they parti…

Throwback to Eduk8 Timișoara in 2016

Eduk8 Starter Timișoara in 2016 – City Guide for a Day
  There are events during your lifetime that you will always remember. These are echoes of some long-ago experiences that you will keep in your mind forever. There are feelings, people, places that had a tremendous effect on your personal development. This is what Miruna, one of the participants in the event Eduk8 Starter in Timișoara, says about her experience in our city.   "For me and, I can guarantee that for any other Eduk8er, one of these life-changing moments is the decision to attend a Starter. My journey into the Eduk8 lifecycle started with Eduk8 Starter in Timișoara, between the 20th -28th of February 2016. For this edition, 95 applications were received and only 50 ESNers were selected. The amount of knowledge gained was amazing, but the real value of attending this training event was the crushing experience of a true, honest self-discovery. The bold truth you find out about yourself is the result of a week full of …
