During the afternoon hours on Wednesday, April, 22. 2015 at the Boathouse Club out on the “Romai” Bayside a gathering of students arrived called by the Harvard Club Hungary.

This special meeting was arranged previously to the Danube Regatta, so that the rower team of the Harvard University can participate  at this event before the competition to be held on Saturday, April, 25. 2015.  At this meeting were present members of the Harvard Club of Hungary. Chief patron Dr. Miklós Tóth – Vice-President of the MOB welcomed the gathered interested students. Kornélia Litke – Academic advisor – Hungarian-American Fulbright Educational Exchange Program Committee,  gave advice on available scholarships to the students present.

As special invited guest  Dr DóraGyőrffy  – (HARVARD ALUMNI MEMBER) – Associate Professor and national record holder in the high jump, who said: Q: “I believe that every man is born, that has a purpose of Life. Their goals continuously have to be discovered, and conscious efforts should be made to accomplish. During the lifetime the goals are subject to change. ”

The teens arriving by interest could hear about the scholarship, get first hand insight into … the secrets or not really … from the experiences by the already granulated students of the  world-famous Harvard University whom arrived to Budapest to participate on Saturday, April, 25. at the Danube Regatta international competition.

The team is a real mixture by nationality … two were from New Zealand, one from United Kingdom, one from Canada and four from United States of America. A part of them graduated students in 2013 and 2014. They one-by-one talked about how they reached the steps to the door to the Harvard University. Said as one, they are luckily and proud they could all come to participate and will compete worthily in the name of their former Harvard University.

The Harvard University’s rowing team does not really have to be introduced and as they all unanimously said they were grateful how their personal coach was by their side from the first minute and along they way. The whole complex … studying, sporty activities are at the fingertips for all the students. As James O’Connor – rower captain Harvard University said: Q.: “The Harvard does not need to set ourselves at a crossroads … do I really want to go to college concentrate on my studies or rowing? Here, both is possible. At the highest possible level.”

On the bottom line …

EDUCATION AND SPORT … IT IS UP TO THE STUDENT OF WHAT HE OR SHE BRING OUT OF IT!
