It was another great day in Novi Sad today with a visit to the University of Novi Sad. We observed two classes and spoke with students, faculty members, and administrators. We learned a lot and developed some great relationships. A special thanks to Vice-Rector Pavle Sekerus, Professors Natassa Kampmark and Terence McEneny, and especially our ambassador for the day, Ivana Đokvučić and her colleagues on the International Relations Office team. We returned to Belgrade tonight, but look forward to the next trip to Novi Sad!!
We had a great visit with the Youth Office in Temerin. We had a wonderful, wide-ranging conversation about culture and cultural differences, education, political systems, history, and stereotypes in our two countries! Thanks to Vojislav Prkosovacki, Regional Youth Office Coordinator for the Serbian Ministry of Youth and Sport, who accompanied us from Novi Sad and share his expertise with us; Ivana Jerkov, Coordinator of the Temerin Youth Office; and all the wonderful young people who welcomed us so warmly, including Nemanja Buba Obradovic, Monika Zsunyi, Denes Varga, Boris Miletic, Deni Krevesic, and Sanja Milicev. Hvala!!
