The Student Week is a cultural event organized annually inside the university campus. It actually lasts for three or four weeks and is organized by more than 60 student groups, whose interests include dance, music, theater, cinema, sports, poetry, comics, etc. This event is open not only to all the members of the academic community of A.U.Th., but also to all the citizens of Thessaloniki.
Its main objective is to promote students' talents in art and culture and to encourage the free artistic expression of the students as individuals or as a group. It also aims at strengthening the human relations between the students and the personnel of the university. The interest of the students in the Student Week has been rapidly increasing since its establishment in 1999.
Famous quotes containing the words week and/or student:
“A baby nurse is one that changes diapers and loves em dearly. Get up at all hours of the night to give em the bottle and change their pants. If the baby coughs or cries, you have to find out the need. I had my own room usually, but I slept in the same room with the baby. I would take full charge. It was twenty-four hours. I used to have one day a week off and Id go home and see my own two little ones.”
—Ruth Lindstrom (c. 1892?)
“To be born in a new country one has to die in the motherland.”
—Irina Mogilevskaya, Russian student. Immigrating to the U.S., student paper in an English as a Second Language class, Hunter College, 1995.
