ESN Society is happy to announce our second International Dinner! This will be an opportunity to socialise and enjoy some great food from all over the world.
Here’s how it works:

• Cook a dish or dessert from your home country, or a country of your choice (cooking in pairs is also encouraged). Make sure you make enough to share around.
• Fill in the form here:
• Write your name(s), the name of your dish, all ingredients you used (for allergy/religious reasons) and the country of origin of your dish on a piece of paper to take with you
• Take it with you to the Wild Lime on Saturday 24th February at 7pm
• Put it on the buffet
• Sign a disclaimer saying you won't sue the Wild Lime if you get sick
• Enjoy the food from all over!
If you do not bring along a dish, you are still more than welcome to come but will have to pay £4 for unlimited food!

Last time was a great success and we had some delicious food from all over, including Poland, Lebanon, Malaysia, China and France. We look forward to seeing what you can come up with!

Check the Facebook event for updates or if you have a question to post!

Last Thursday, your ESN committee held a tea and coffee event, where we gathered some feedback about Semester 1 of your Erasmus Experience in Southampton! Here is what you had to say:

"My first three months here were amazing. I've met a lot of new people and learnt a lot of new things. This experience is amazing! I can't wait to see what's waiting for me next semester!"

"I have enjoyed my stay here in Southampton. Although everything is expensive [in England - not necessarily Southampton!], I've enjoyed spending my money! I look forward to see what appealing discounts ESN Southampton are organising for ESN Card holders."

"Erasmus gave me a precious insight into the English culture and I have had a delightful time so far. I can only recommend coming here!"

"Erasmus is a wonderful opportunity to experience life abroad, to learn a new language or improve existent language knowledge. ESN helped me to get to know the surrounding areas of Southampton and to make local and international friends."

Thank you to those who provided feedback to us! If you would like to pass on a comment or suggestion to us, don't hesitate to contact us!

Great place to grab some breakfast or lunch in Portswood. Check out the menu here.
