Saturday-Sunday, October 21st-22nd. During the ESN Council of Local Representatives’ meeting, which took place in Cracow last weekend, ESN UAM Poznań section was represented by our Vice-President – Patrycja Płachecka. Although it’s just the beginning of the new academic year, many important decisions for ESN Poland Association and its local sections were made. Members of our own group were involved in the debate on best solutions and they rose to the challenge, allowing our ESN UAM Poznań Delegate transfer the conclusions into votes during the meeting.

Wednesday, October 25th. Our charity speed dating, organised by the SocialErasmus team, has absolutely hit the bull’s eye – we managed to attract a truly large number of Erasmus students. Some of them might have hoped to meet their soulmate, whereas the rest simply wanted to make new friends and have fun at the same time – the latter criterion has definitely been met. Additionally, the students could take part in a lottery. Profits help a local animal shelter. Every lottery ticket was a winning one – ESN gadgets, such as wristbands or pens, as well as bars of chocolate and colourful notebooks, awaited the lucky ones who decided to support our good cause. The highlight of the event came at the choosing of the Erasmus of the Month – and the winner was Zihao Wang from China, who won all the women’s hearts and got the best overall score from his interlocutors. Next week you will have a chance to find out more about him – Zihao is going to give an interview for the ESN Weekly News!

Thursday, October 26th. Nobody had been expecting such Halloween – the one-of-a-kind Tram Party could easily make history as one of the best received ideas of the Event project. Eerie scenery combined with the unusual venue and original costumes could lead to nothing else but complete success. And this was only one part of the event, as the party moved from the tram to Colloqium Club, where it extended well into the evening hours! In order to acknowledge the participants’ efforts, a competition for the best Halloween makeup was announced. One of our Erasmus students, Mathilde, turned out to be unrivalled. Congratulations on winning!

On Thursday night we officially finished our autumn recruitment to the ESN UAM Poznań section. That day, after the intense week full of recruitment interviews, our section grew by 25 Newbies. We had already had an opportunity to meet one another during the informational and workshop meeting. It turned out to be extremely difficult to make the choices as each of our candidates turned out to be an inspiring and colorful person. Thank you all for your interest, time and the chance to get to know you. We keep our fingers crossed for you! And we will see you soon, Newbies!
