Mykolas Romeris University community members were amazed by Erasmus students’ talents already for the fifth time. On Friday evening, 11th of November was held one of the most popular events among students – Erasmus Got Talent, which have already become traditional.

The event has expanded this semester – many talented people gathered to share their creativity and originality not only fromMykolas Romeris University, but also from Vilnius Universityand European Humanitarian University.

University also had an honour to be visited by schoolchildren from Vilnius region Pagiriai gymnasium and Utena Dauniškis gymnasium, who equally competed with university students to win the prize. The audience was astonished by the energy and courage they showed.

Strict but fair jury consisted of mentors dressed as Britney Spears (Justina Kozlovska), Bruno Mars(Robertas Šumskis) and Lady Gaga (Viktorija Kašlėjūtė) had to do the most difficult work – make a decision who are worthiest to win.

Although it wasn’t easy to choose from so many good dancers, singers and musicians, the jury came to a conclusion that in category of originality The Erasmus Boys made the most memorable performance. 4 guys showed the audience what Erasmus studies are really about while using exclusive dance moves.

Pagiriai gymnasium schoolchildren didn’t bother just to be average as well – they won prize for the best dance.

Svetlana Jaraud was awarded for Lithuanian Patriotism. Audience was stunned by the French girl who came up on the stage carrying huge Lithuanian flag and sang Trys milijonai by heart.

Andrea Amadeo and Ineta Kairytė set the dance floor on fire with their performance, considered by jury as the most romantic. Everyone enjoyed their dance divided into three parts: unprofessional tango, pop dance and Lithuanian national dance. According to lovely couple, this mixture of Italian and Lithuanian is a symbol of world’s integration.

Thibaut Noel gave everyone a warm overwhelming feeling with an outstanding guitar loop jam he composed few months ago and played it in front of people for the first time. He won not only in category of public choice but also earned the jury’s sympathy which gave him the first prize. As Thibaut said, Erasmus Got Talent definitely completes its goal: enjoying and having fun between Erasmus students, mentors and officials from MRU together. He claims that this night will definitely be a good memory from Lithuania.

Mykolas Romeris University International Exchange Unit together with ESN MRU Vilnius, that organized the event, are very proud they had an opportunity to gather so many talented people together and believe that such a nice tradition will continue.

The 22nd October is now written into history of ESN Lithuania as the day of PRIME conference, which was first of this scale event in ESN Lithuania, as the first PRIME conference, which was held some time ago, did not have so many attendants, including Representative from European Commision, Ministry of Education and Science and many Higher education institutions. It needs to be mentioned that we were proud to welcome ESN AISBL Treasurer Damien Lamy-Preto and the main ESN PRIME coordinator Justyna Pisera.

The conference was hosted by ESN MRU Vilnius and covered the results of PRIME project. Both international and national results were presented. As we know, academic exchange is a multilevel process and the principle of integrity must be kept discussing future strategies of students mobility. Organizers were glad to see that after presenting the material of the conference, quite a huge discussion evolved. Participants were expressing their opinions on the results of PRIME project, discussing success and failure stories and suggesting some improvements. So, hopefully, each of the participants got something valuable from this event.

The good news are that the general results of PRIME are much better than the previous year. The worst situation is considered to be in Germany, Bulgaria, Hungary, while Lithuania is in the 8th place. So, our situation is comparably not bad, but there are still things to improve.

To mention shortly, here is the index of recognition in Lithuania:

Full recognition: 79,78 %

Not full recognition: 20,22 %

More results are coming soon as a separate edition.

During the NP of ESN Lithuania on 26th February, 2011 new event was held - GO PUBLIC! The idea of this was to encourage sections to share their ideas with each other and let others know more about what they are doing. And now we are proud to announce the winners of the event!

Congratulations go to:

Best event: ESN VU - Wild Dates. The ideas of blind dating and wild dating were connected. Both Erasmus and Lithuanians could participate and show their best. It was fun, it was new, interesting, it was WILD!

Best social event: ESN MRU Vilnius - Erasmus Fundraising. It was initiated by Erasmus students themselves. During the whole term, they collected empty bottles, white cents and in the end of the term used all the received money for buying presents, games, candies and so on for children sick with tuberculosis. When visiting children, Erasmus also presented their countries, so children could learn more about different cultures.
 
Best new idea: ESN VGTU - ESN MAN. The idea of ESN MAN is to make a plastic man to promote ESN. The artificial man would be situated in several places, which are quite visible to the public, e.g. entrance of university.
