"In a series of interviews conducted by Students4Students, founders of beginner student organisations explain what motivated them and provide an insight into how they realised their ideas. Mikulas Karger of Students4Students (S4S) hopes to get a better understanding of how that works by interviewing several students who did just that.
I’m fascinated with the great ecosystem of student organisations here at EUR. We really have a lot of organisations that actively organise activities. This large number of ‘successful’ organisations clearly creates added value for the university, since they can teach students the kinds of things that the university doesn’t pay enough attention to", tells Mikulas Karger from S4S to Erasmus Magazine.
Most diverse student organisations
Whether you are interested in becoming an entrepreneur, the environment or technology, there’s a good chance this university has a society or organisation that is active in that field. But what do you do if there is no society catering for your particular interests? Sometimes students will take matters into their own hands and found an organisation of their own. Mikulas Karger of Students4Students (S4S) hopes to get a better understanding of how that works by interviewing several students who did just that. So far he has discussed with four founders how they – partially thanks to S4S – managed to get a foothold in that crowded ecosystem of student societies, and he is planning to conduct more interviews.
