ESN Budapest United (BPU) Parties
ESN Budapest United is the cooperation of the 10 ESN sections of Budapest. The main goal of the cooperation is to host parties monthly for all of the exchange students in Budapest in a familiar environment, providing the good mood. Every party has a different theme according to the seasons, the holidays, etc. Related to the current theme, we organise various games and programs at the party place, e.g. facepainting, hairdying to make more fun.
International Dinner and Culture Night
A special type of event is the EuroDinner, where the students themselves have to make a dish, which represents their country. So they can introduce their homeland via food. These kind of events are really successful - for "unknown reason", but eating might have a role in this. There is usually an afterparty after the dinner. Since 2016 Autumn semester, we have added some folk song and dance presentations as well as Hungarian folk dance teaching. We also renamed the event for this reason to International Dinner and Culture Night.
Speed Dating is the best event to get to know other Erasmus students at the beginning of your mobility, since you can talk with others about different topics for a given period of time while visiting one of the pubs of downtown Budapest
Do you want to have a little adventure around the city? Then Scavenger Hunt is for you! In this event we go around the city in smaller groups while completing challenging and funny tasks.
We all know that Erasmus is all about having fun, don’t we? After a full week of administrative tasks and cultural programs we organise the Welcome Party at the beginning of every semester. Fun people, a nice place, your first party in Budapest. Can you say no to that?
A full weekend event outside of Budapest to discover other towns in Hungary? Say yes! Every semester we spend 2 days in Eger. The program includes discovering the beautiful city of Eger, unlimited wine tasting at a great winery, castle tour and much more!
The Pub Quiz is one of our most popular regular events. Ten teams of international students meet up every other Monday at a local pub to compete in this exciting game which has proven to be best ways to make new friends. The first part of the quiz is usually composed of questions divided into thematic categories such as history, literature, and science, while the second part includes two picture rounds and one music round. The winners receive a prize at the end.
In case you wish to participate, please note that the event requires prior registration through a form published some days before the quiz on Facebook.
