Welcome to MESPOM - Balaton retreat

October 3, 2018

Like we do every fall, we have welcomed our new students to Hungary by hosting the annual retreat near Lake Balaton for the CEU department of Environmental Sciences, Policy and Management!

This year the retreat took place at the former Pioneer Camp in Zanka. As usual, the first day was dedicated to getting to know one another and a dip in the lake. The second day was a tour to the Balaton Upland National Park.

The retreat was attended by students from MESP (1-year), MESPOM, 1st year PhD students, and faculty and staff.
