Alumni: Help Prepare CEU’s Next Generation

July 25, 2019

Hundreds of students around the world are about to leave home to study at CEU. Who better to prepare them for what lays ahead than CEU alumni?

Academic year 2019-20 will be like none other and it’s literally weeks away. Students this year will get the opportunity to study on two campuses, in Vienna and Budapest. In preparation CEU alumni chapters on six continents are hosting Pre-Departure Orientations to help newly-accepted students prepare for CEU life. (See upcoming PDOs below.)

PDOs are a fun way for alumni to reunite with classmates and to meet new students, answer their questions and provide advice about study at CEU and life in Budapest. Through alumni experiences and advice, students can better get ready for the year ahead – and learn from those who have 'been there.'

Most PDOs include a social hour at local cafes or pubs. They are organized by alumni chapters and Local Area Coordinators in tandem with CEU's Alumni Relations and Student Recruitment teams. Want to get involved? Write Nurangiz.

Several PDOs have already taken place this summer in South America, Africa, Australia, Asia and Europe. HUGE THANKS to all alumni who made it happen! See below for those still to come.
