5th Annual International Cultural Evening (ICE)

Where people are happy, healthy, and become about 2 kgs heavier

International_Cultural_EveningOn Saturday, April 16th the international student body of Szeged held their 5th annual International Cultural Evening (ICE). Every year, the International Student Union of Szeged (ISUS), organizes this event with the help of the foreign students´ secretariat, the deans´ office of the medical faculty, and student representatives from countries around the world. Every year the event is full of fun, food, and dancing. However, the main feature of the night is always culture.

The night began for around 1500 guests with a short introduction by the president of ISUS, Deliah Bockemühl. After the pleasantries, the night kicked off in an explosive fashion. The crowd went wild for the 12 performances, which featured a variety of countries from across the globe. With incredible choreography from the Indians, a historic musical romp from the Germans, and subtly controlled chaos from the Japanese. Each participating country came out in full force and truly put on a memorable show.


Once the students felt that the audience was sufficiently starving, the food was served. 21 student led groups decorated booths to serve traditional dishes from their home countries. With food from Spain to Uganda, even the pickiest of eaters found something to their liking. In fact, they found many somethings. All in all, people left ICE happy, healthy, and about 2 kgs heavier.

The most incredible thing about the whole evening was that it was put on by students. Almost all of the food was made by students, and all of the performances were created and performed by students. Although they received help from the university, the secretariat, and various consulates, the event was imagined, organized and put on by students. This event stands as a testament to the quality and spirit of the student body here in Szeged.

SZTE Experience


Gizem Gültekin – Faculty of Law and Political Sciences

I am studying at University of Szeged as a former Erasmus student, currently as a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder. Both the institution and the town are wonderful. Many entertainment and sports facilities are provided, and it is also easy to make new friends. It is a great experience to attend the University, and I would like to stay in Szeged and continue my academic studies.

I chose the University of Szeged, because it has a very good international reputation. When I previously checked the website of the University I liked the fact that Szeged is not too big and too small. I received a lot of help from the ESN mentors. I like Hungary and Szeged a lot and I’m enjoying my classes. When I have free time I go jogging, or play foosball with my friends. In Szeged I really love Süti, nem süti, the river and TIK, because it is just perfect place to study: specious place with full of students and books.
