Going abroad as part of the Erasmus+ program is a valuable and unforgettable experience. Besides an opportunity to study in a new environment, an incoming student is also given a chance of integration with people from different countries in Europe and all over the world. All good things must come to an end, about which international students of our University eventually became convinced leaving Poznań after the first semester. And it was especially for them that the ESN UAM Poznań section organized a classic Farewell Party, which was a great occasion to meet Erasmus friends for the last time. That night, the MK Bowling Club in the MM Gallery turned into a place full of farewell chats, toasts and dances. The party was also attended by the willing members of our section.

During the party, additional attractions were waiting for our international friends. In order to provide entertainment and fun activities, everyone could go bowling for free. The idea was received with a lot of enthusiasm, and the spirit of good sportsmanship entered every team taking part in the game.

Erasmus students’ various kinds of active participation in different events during their stay in Poland were also recognized. First, by Internet-based voting, the winners of particular categories were picked and then awarded symbolic statuettes at the party. In this way we met Miss and Mister Erasmus, the Best Traveler, the Best SocialErasmus, the Best Party Animal, and the Best Erasmus speaking Polish.

Although the majority of students have finished their Erasmus adventure in Poznań, they will certainly come back to their countries full of positive memories that they are going to reminisce about for a long time. Those who participated in the Farewell Party will return to their countries with this additional and unique memory.
