Description of section:

Our section is the oldest and biggest one of 2 sections present in Nitra. The average number of our incoming Erasmus students is around 120 per year, and this number has been increasing during the last years. The main aim of our section is to provide the Buddy system service and other social activities. During our existence we have organized a lot of trips and social events, which were successful and awarded by our Erasmus students. All members of ESN SUA Nitra are always ready to help. The most important for us is to feel ESN SPIRIT..:)

Our section was established in 2008 by Matej Hudec like ESN Uniag Nitra. In 2012 the section changed the name and now it's ESN SUA Nitra. After  Matej Hudec had our section 5 more presidents: Mariana Geffertová, Jana Reváková , Zuzana Bajusová,  Kristína Sládečková and current president  Kristína Candráková. At the beginning of our existence, we were around 10 active members, but every year the team is changing. We started with a few events for Erasmus students but today our activities are more interesting. Last year and also this year our section has participated in Social Erasmus, because we want to develop this idea. After one year of our existence, we built a nice relation with the International relations Office in our University and since this moment they have been supporting us financially or helping us when we need it. We are really happy and its pleasure for us to be part of this Network.
