ESN IULM MILANO is the local section of Milan, connected with the IULM University, which follows the aims of ESN in the city of Milan and particularly for young people in Milan, working with the sections of ESN Statale, ESN Politecnico, ESN Bocconi, ESN Unicatt and ESN Milano-Bicocca.
Our association is formed by volunteer students, most of all former Erasmus, and students of IULM University interested in LLP activities and programs.
ESN IULM Milano was founded in 2001, but after a short period of activity, it was liquidated because of the lack of new members interested in continuing its mission. In 2006, three IULM students, David, Alberto and Silvia, who had just came back from their Erasmus period at Utrecht University, decided to start a new adventure refunding the ESN association in their University. Their aim was to contribute to this network after the positive experience they had had abroad, being in contact with foreign students and organizing for them activities and services which could make the Erasmus experience in Milan a unique and unforgettable experience.
In May 2006, during the National Platform in Camerino, ESN IULM Milan officially became part of the ESN Italy Network.
Using the qualities and the good will of local students, ESN IULM helps and supports foreign and Italian students, integrating them in the institutional reality and in the urban juvenile life. In particular, ESN IULM gives them all the information useful for improving as much as possible their stay. The section organizes periodical cultural and entertaining activities, and trips to places of interest in Italy, inserting foreign and Italian students in a well consolidated group.
FOR WHOM ARE WE HERE?
Italian students, who are coming back from their mobility period, are supported in the process of reintegration, keeping themselves in contact with a multicultural environment.
Despite that, in main, the European Student Networks’ aims are directed at the current exchange students, who often find that they have to address problems on their own and can feel abandoned in a foreign country. Because of this, ESN offers help at an academic, social and integration level. All this means activities, at a local level, that include social and cultural events such as trips in different places of the host country, film viewings, tutoring programs and linguistic exchanges, international dinners and, obviously parties.
