No i co tam, ludzie? We’ve been extremely busy this past quarter. The last you heard from us was from the potluck. Well, guess what? We had ANOTHER potluck. Even better than the first one. Then, we celebrated the International Food Festival, and that was great fun. Lots of people asked about how we differ from the Germans. What! How dare they. We later had a summer opportunities panel with the European Student Association (ESA), International Student Association (ISA), CEERES, and others. Here is the official announcement: Are you studying pre-law, pre-med, history, politics, academia, or business? Are you interested in Eastern European culture, do you speak Polish, Czech, Slovakian, or even Spanish, French or German? Are you going to be hungry on Thursday night?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, we have an event for you!
Come join us at the IHOUSE for our summer opportunities panel. Representatives looking for student interns both in the summer and now from COMMUNITY HEALTH CLINIC (http://www.communityhealth.org/), POLISH AMERICAN MUSEUM (http://www.polishmuseumofamerica.org/ — who plan to offer an internship ESPECIALLY FOR UCHICAGO STUDENTS!), THE SLAVIC DEPARTMENT will be there. We are eager to help you find a job where you can use your foreign language skills or any EASTERN EUROPEAN skills.
FREE DINNER WILL BE PROVIDED FROM PIZZA CAPRI.

Julita Siegel - Polish Museum
Consul Robert Rusiecki - Polish Consulate in Chicago

We also celebrated Paczki Day, or Tlusty Czwartek. We had 200 paczki, and they were gone within an hour! DELICIOUS!
Next quarter we will have Kielbasa on the Quad, a Potluck, a study break, re-elections, and the CEERES Study Break. Looking forward to seeing you!
