Name: JOHANNA STURM Field of study: MSc Strategic Marketing Nationality: German

Student assistant at CES since: I have been involved with CES for years but I am now working even more regularly since this Summer (2011). The best thing about being a student assistant at CES is that … it’s a Dream Job! You are doing fun things with even more fun people and getting paid for it whilst getting to know Europe. The best experience I have had as a student assistant at CES so far is that I enjoy being part of our students’ life abroad - they call me at night for the best pub to go to after hours, ask for advice for their adventures abroad… It’s nice to see how everyone enjoys Maastricht and its surroundings. My favourite thing about Maastricht is the atmosphere: cobble stone streets, exquisite restaurants, cozy cafés, cute boutiques…

Name: GLENN BORRET Field of study: MSc Healthcare innovation, policy and management Nationality: British

Student assistant at CES since: 2009 The best thing about being a student assistant at CES is chaperoning the study tours that are part of each programme. During my time with CES I have visited all major EU Institutions and some really amazing beacons of Europe which I would not have got around to seeing on my own. The best experience I have had as a student assistant at CES so far is probably going to the Von Rundstedt Offensive site in the Ardennes (Belgium) where I took a group of students to the area where the 'Battle of the Bulge' was fought. The bleak landscape took us right back to one of the famous World War II battle (it’s since been on Band of Brothers, the one in the snow). My favourite thing about Maastricht is the local landscape where I ride my bike, and ‘bitterballen’, a delicious Dutch culinary specialty. 26
