A program office focusing on American culture and values is about to open on 21st March in the building of Szent-Györgyi Albert Agora. American Corner of Szeged is going to offer cultural programs, seminars, science-promoting lectures, scholarship opportunities and an American library.

The 5th American Corner is to be opened within the framework of a cooperation of the Embassy of the United States, the University of Szeged, Szeged Municipality and Szent-Györgyi Albert Agora. The office – being part of the American Spaces network represented in 150 countries – is opening its door on 21st March.

’Visitors of the Corner will be able to get to know the United States via workshops, clubs, lectures promoting technology and science; a conference room equipped with modern IT-tools, such as a 3D-printer, as well as publications on the history and culture of the United States and a library are at disposal. American celebrations and holidays are going to be introduced on lectures and cultural programs’ says Judit Gera, the head of the office.

 

The institution provides information regarding American scholarships and education opportunities for high school and university students. Occasions developing English language skills will be also scheduled on a regular basis; trainings and workshops aiming the development of entrepreneurial competences will be offered as well. The Corner intends to establish close relations with the University of Szeged, local primary and secondary schools, civil society organizations and business ventures.

SZTE Experience


Yuanyuan_ChenYuanyuan Chen - International Economy and Business - Stipendium student

My first impression about Szeged was, that it is „a standard lovely Western city. You can see colourful buildings everywhere; enjoy the sunshine, walk in the nature, study in the bright, high-tech library”. I think this is a perfect place for students where they can experience sparkling culture diversity, enjoy the peacefulness of everyday life, meet a lot of kind and motivating people, enjoy the inspiring academic atmosphere, taste the food not only from Hungary but also from the world. I can call Szeged my second home.

I am studying at University of Szeged as a former Erasmus student, currently as a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder. Both the institution and the town are wonderful. Many entertainment and sports facilities are provided, and it is also easy to make new friends. It is a great experience to attend the University, and I would like to stay in Szeged and continue my academic studies.
