Students’ thoughts about our International Club DUE (IC DUE):

„It was wonderful to watch such like those presentations from different countries and take a look at many different cultures. It was very beautiful to invite younger students from the high school to watch what others did in English not in Hungarian. That’s very goodJ” (Loujain Alkelnay)

„It is so great that the cultures can interfere each other and it is the best way to meet countries. Here we get to know about countries, culture, custums. So, IC DUE is a good way for us and provide us lots of new things, new information and we have to care about that.” (Sharaf Abdulwahab Mohammed Abduljalil)

„ It is a great idea to know things we didn’t know about our countries. In the last presentation I feel glad for all that information so I desire to visit them.” (Lama Mkanna)

„From the World to the University…It’s a good idea for students to get to know other cultures.” (Attallah Elias)

„International Club is a good place for communication with others and see different cultures. „ ( Iqbal Muhammad Naveed)





The International Evening - organized by the University of Dunaújváros - now a traditional event when the international students can introduce their country and culture. On the 17th of October the Chinese and the Syrian students had the opportunity to show the many wonders their home can offer.



From their well prepared presentations the audience could learn that these countries hold the heritage of ancient civilizations and in their traditional calendar the current date is way over 5000 years! Holidays, touristic areas, famous people, infrastructure and languages were also mentioned.  It was a pleasure to see how well the students worked in groups and how happy and proud they were to speak about their home and customs.



The Chinese students were also asked to prepare and share some traditional food: to everyone's suprise they cooked fresh, delicious dumplings on the spot.



After the presentation the students could join to the pre-halloween party organised by the Students Union.
