April 7, 2020

Like many alumni, Kossi Binesi Atchrimi (IR ’19, USA) counts his time at CEU as among the best in his life. 

Therefore, when the NYC-based alumnus heard that students from his program were arriving in the Big Apple last year to continue their studies, he didn’t hesitate. 

“We were good friends back in Budapest,” he said. “And when I heard they were coming here I said ‘what time should I pick you up’?” 

Starting last summer and through this academic year, Kossi would gas up his car and drive out the airport to pick up IR students arriving to study at Bard College.
