"At the College for Advanced Studies I received a huge amount of support from our lecturers and fellow students. As a member I gained enriching experiences, that only a few people of my age have the opportunity to receive. I met a great deal of interesting people, formed strong friendships with students all of whom left marks on my life and helped to shape my personality and extend my knowledge. I encountered diverse ways of thinking about and dealing with the world."
"The lectures contributed in a decisive way to widen my horizon and helped me to be able to reflect on different subjects. They set me on the path to be more intellectual. In my case, the courses offered by the PMSZ shaped my world view and provided me with an incentive to reach my full potential."
"The friendly environment and the closeness to my university mean a lot to me personally. It's a great feeling that when I return at evenings, I’m not only arriving at a dorm, but also a place I dare to call "home." Belonging to a community that inspires you and gives you empowerment is very important."
"Thanks to the rhetoric lectures I received at the College for Advanced Studies, the knowledge of how to deliver an attention-grabbing presentation is in my pocket. I do not become stressed any longer when I have to make a speech in public. Being part of the PMSZ is an opportunity like no other."
