Why do you work at EUC?
After four years in the same job, I found it about time for a new challenge, which I was hoping to find at EUC when I applied for a position within the newly formed Marketing, Recruitment, Admissions & Integration team. I have definitely found this new challenge! I very much like trying to get as many good students to EUC as possible, I love working in such an inspiring environment, and I enjoy being part of such a varied group of people that works towards the same goal: turn EUC into the best option for students that are interested in Liberal Arts & Sciences.
