Daniel Eid, undergraduate student at Bocconi:

“I had the pleasure to represent my University in the CIVICA Alliance. It has been an absolute honour to promote and be active in cross-country initiatives at the European level and happily the trend is increasing. If you are passionate about representation, Europe, and want to be active in several projects this is the place for you!”

Ženja Eremić, master's student at CEU:

“We got a wonderful opportunity to exchange knowledge, to meet many Bachelor, Master and PhD level students from all around the world and to widen our perspectives. I am happy I was a part of such an international team where we used our voices to raise awareness and come up with solutions to social problems.”

Léonard Colomba-Petteng, PhD researcher at Sciences Po:

"The position of CIVICA ambassador was an interesting experience which required dedication and a full ability to interact with the multiple actors who design higher education policies at the European level. I was really surprised by the amount of initiatives launched by CIVICA and the great vitality of this European University Alliance."

Jonathan Ziener, master's student at LSE:

“CIVICA is a great possibility to meet inspiring people and make friends outside of your own home university.”
