Farewell Message Related Events  Announcements


Dear EUC e-Weekly friends, 

With this final issue of Spring'13, EUC e-Weekly says good-bye until it resumes in August. We send you our best wishes for a wonderful summer and thank you for your continued support.

If you're traveling to Europe this summer, don't forget to take lots of pictures to enter the 2014 EUC Photo Contest! We also encourage you to submit a post for publication to our "Across the Pond" Blog and be in the running to win our "Dispatches from Europe" Study Abroad blog contest (EUC Blog insructions can be found here). Winners of both contest will receive monetary prizes!

Also, don't forget about the EUC Scholars in Residence Program and please share this opportunity with colleagues at other institutions.

Lastly, please take a look at Fall 2013 courses related to EU studies and send in suggestions for inclusion of additional courses.

We hope you enjoyed reading our e-newsletter over the past semester. In Fall 2013, EUC e-Weekly will continue bringing you information about EU related events, resources, funding, and career opportunities.

Congratulations and best of luck to all EUC-affiliated graduating students!
