The University of Rijeka, Faculty of Economics and Business, is looking for EFRI buddies for the academic year 2018/2019! As the name indicates, EFRI buddy is a project through which we would like to provide support of older students to new generations of freshmen and prepare them for student living. The first challenge that freshmen encounter is enrollment at the Faculty. They need help and that is why EFRI buddies would be a great support during the whole enrollment process. Later on, every EFRI buddy will be responsible for a group of freshmen, with the obligation to organize meetings for their group (at least once a month) throughout the whole winter semester (more or fewer meetings according to necessity). At these gatherings, they would inform them about current things important for studying and student living. The first meeting would be in the first week of classes in the academic year 2018/2019. All candidates that apply and satisfy the conditions listed below, will be prepared for any possible questions that freshmen might ask them in an educational workshop "EFRI for freshmen”. It will be about the basic procedures of enrollment in the first year of undergraduate studies (the documents, Studomat,…), important terms that they will encounter for the first time, EFRI possibilities, getting around the Faculty (expert services, the old building of the Faculty,…) etc. Also, EFRI buddies would choose, amongst themselves, a representative who will be responsible for reporting any issues to the Administrative Board, SZ EFRI, the student attorney or the Career Centre.
