This is the second edition of the “Alumni Carnival”.
This year, we managed to organize this event in as many as 9 provincial cities, i.e. in Gdańsk, Katowice, Kielce, Kraków, Łódź, Opole, Poznań, Szczecin, Warsaw and Brussels. “Alumni Carnival” is a series of regional meetings of Alumni over coffee & tea & beer & wine (drink to choose from).
Members of the Alumni Association met, but also other participants of US State Department programs who had not yet joined the “Alumni family”: FLEX-ers, i.e. the youngest of the American scholarship holders; Fulbrighters, who are the largest group of beneficiaries of US Department scholarships, and their American counterparts who came to Poland this year.
The “Alumni Carnival” took place in January and February. There were joint games (going bowling), joint trips (rowing down the Black Trout Adit), joint meals and drinks. We talked about curiosities from the scholarship trip to the USA, differences in academic work here and there, established contacts, benefits of staying in the States. Because each of us has gained a lot thanks to the scholarship of the US State Department.
See you next year at … “Alumni Carnival 2024”.
