Meet Barbara Oberc, Campus Ambassador at University of Newcastle!
Just a typical Slovenian based in Ljubljana. Born in Toronto and lived in Heidelberg for a little while before moving to Newcastle to begin my studies. Obviously I love to travel but I also love good music (who doesn’t), taking skiing trips in the winter and hiking trips in the summer with friends and family, a good read, a good film, my fat cat, and coffee.
Keep up with Barbara every Monday as she tells us what it’s really like to work as a management consultant while being a student!

I present myself as a proud participant of the International Student Festival in Trondheim, Norway 2011. In the words of Oscar Levant,
“Happiness is not something you remember, but something you experience”
The surreal delight and the exciting experiences this journey brought me, can never be forgotten.
My odyssey began with a simple ISFIT invitation letter on the college notice board and an application process. Fate, however, had much greater plans for me. The affirmation of the application saw me as one of the 450 students selected for the event from the entire planet. A privilege and honor I bestow to my college.
Friends, ISFIT 2011 was a life changing experience, certainly one of the best times in my life. I have always aspired of making a positive difference in society and I could not have asked for a better motivational experience than my time in ISFIT 2011. I was a complete stranger when I stepped foot in Trondheim with students of diverse cultures, languages and lifestyles all around me. But the intellectual aura encompassing the event actually bonded all of us for one ultimate aim: WORLD PEACE.

The Benefits of Attending International Conference for Students
By Rizalul D. Pasundani, StudentEvents' Campus Ambassador at the University of Indonesia
Communication is one of the most important things for human beings, no matter how it is conducted. Today’s students are the masters of communication both formally and informally. One of the most important venues for formal communication is at a conference, especially international conferences for undergraduate students. There are many benefits, both globally and individually, of attending a conference. Not only do you further your education, but you also learn how to talk to people from diverse backgrounds.
Many clashes of civilizations have happened because of different ways of thinking, and because the time allocated for communication was not sufficient. International student conferences can provide a way of decreasing these kinds of international tensions, making the world a better place. That’s the benefit for our global society, but what about the individual benefits of attending a student conference? Why should students regardless of what they are studying be interested in interacting with others in their field?
