Alumni Carnival 2024

It’s for the third time that January and February were an active period in our community. Because it was the time of the “Alumni Carnival”, i.e. a series of regional Alumni meetings with lots of fun, interesting events and talking over coffee & tea, beer & wine (of choice).

Members of the Alumni Association met, but also participants of all U.S. Department of State programs who have not yet joined the “Alumni Family”, such as FLEXers, the youngest of the American scholarship holders, or Fulbrighters, who constitute the largest group of recipients of U.S. Department scholarships.

During this year’s carnival, we managed to organize events in six voivodeships: Lesser Poland, Masovia, Podkarpackie, Silesia, Świętokrzyskie and Greater Poland and also, traditionally, in Brussels, Belgium, as a large diaspora of Polish Alumni lives and works there.

There were many attractions during the “Alumni Carnival”: bowling competition in Krakow’s Kazimierz, fun in the “Unlock the door” Escape Room in Kielce, visiting the Norblin Factory Museum in Warsaw, or the historic Ignacy coal mine in Silesia, with long conversations over tasty food and good drinks in other voivodeships.
