Mentor system by Erasmus Student Network (ESN)
ESN Mentors, as members of a non-governmental, volunteer-based student organisation in Europe, are volunteers who help foreign students settling down in Szeged. In cooperation with the University, they help newly arrived students starting their academic and social life at SZTE and Szeged. ESN and their events bring international students closer to the local community, and last but not least, they make friends with them, all in order to provide opportunities for cultural understanding and self-development under the principle of students helping students and to build a more peaceful and unified Europe of tomorrow.
