The Belarusian chapter of CEU Alumni & Friends celebrated its tenth anniversary during a December 27th reunion in Minsk.
Held at a local café, the meeting was opened by chapter leader Siarhei Salei, who spoke of the chapter’s history and activities. Special guest was Kananovich Uladzimir (MEDS ’96), who shared his experience of being one of CEU’s Belarusian first students. The group also welcomed its newest member, Katerina Shelkovich.
Approximately 30 persons attended last month’s reunion of the Slovak chapter of CEU Alumni & Friends.
The group, a combination of older and younger alums as well as current students, met on December 19 at a Bratislava brewery. Event organizers described the turnout as "record breaking." It was a great opportunity for friends and former classmates to reconnect.
“We stayed and talked a lot,” said chapter leader Elena Bianchi. “Maybe because we haven’t seen each other for a couple of months.”
More than 50 CEU alumni and friends joined us for last Friday’s reunion in London. It was a great opportunity to catch up with friends and colleagues and to share in the connection afforded us by being part of the CEU community.
