ESN has been the most binding element for me since I came to Bogazici two years ago. I met with people from all around the world and now I have friends from 27 different countries. I met with down-to-earth people who said “Text me if you come to Gent” or “Call me when you come to Munich during Erasmus”. Thus, ESN helped me to build a global network based on friendships. In addition, ESN provided me opportunities to travel around in and out of Istanbul together with like-minded people who were eager to travel and escape from the stresses of life.
