Dear Exchange Students,
 

First of all, let us introduce ourselves: ESN (Erasmus Student Network) is a non-profit international student organization and we are the section of Corvinus University of Budapest, ESN Corvinus. Our main aim is to support the integration of the incoming exchange students under the principle of Students Helping Students. That’s why we will organize you lots of cultural and social events such as trips to various places within and outside of Hungary, sport tournaments, sightseeing tours, international dinners… and last, but not least, parties. We’ll also try and help you with settling in to your new home by organizing orientation events, creating communication channels and help create a community where you’ll enjoy spending the upcoming months.

If you have any further question(s) regarding the program, feel free to write Virp, our Tandem Coordinator on this address: tandem@esncorvinus.com

 

Communication

 

We have created a number of ways for you to keep in touch with us and each other:
 

The first and most important is the

Facebook group for the Corvinus University Exchange Students 2017 Spring: https://www.facebook.com/groups/180990569032249/

 

This is your official exchange group, you won’t get any spam messages here. Be careful about joining other groups, because it is likely that you will receive lots of spam advertising in those. 
You can use this group to organize housing, find classmates, organize programs among yourselves,etc. 

Please note that in order to maintain a group that is absolutely spam-free we’re checking everyone’s profile and we’ll only let in those who are proven to be Corvinus University students. If our admin isn’t approving your request to join the group it might be because you’re Facebook name is not the same as your birth name and is not matching with any name on our list or for some reason you’re not on the list provided by the International Office. In either cases please contact us so we can sort out the matter.

The group's admin is Benő, our mascot, feel free to add him on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100012964695364&fref=ts
