Lithuanian Food Market and Protmūšis

For most of us it was the day of full-on cooking. For one evening Teviot Dining hall became a wee Lithuanian food market. “Lašiniai”, rye bread, “Skruzdėlynas”, potato pancakes/scones, apple pie with ice-cream, doughnuts, “Lazy bones” and others were brought as tickets to the night. 

An hour of food tasting was followed by Protmūšis. 4 teams were challenged with 25 hardcore questions - we heard a lot of creative answers!

During the breaks students have voted for the best dish of the night. The first place went to the authors of two Skruzdėlynas”. :) 

The night was absolutely smashing, I am guessing it was a wee while since the last time you had some of those marvellous foods! Huge thanks to everyone who turned up and made this huge effort. You indeed made the night great!

EULS team.

Remember, remember the 5th of November!

Remember, remember the 5th of November!

A team of EULS enthusiasts went up on the Calton hill to watch the fireworks for the commemoration of Guys Fawkes night on the 5th of November.

This tradition comes from 1605 as a celebration of a failed conspiracy against a Protestant King James I by English Catholics that aimed to assassinate and replace him with a Catholic head. On the 5th of November Guy Fawkes was caught placing the explosives around the House of Lords and was arrested. That night people of London have lit the bonfires to celebrate their King survival. This tradition has also spread the world.

Movie Night

It’s getting colder, and evenings are getting unpleasantly darker - there’s not much to do outside anymore. Studying is not an option either, right? That’s why EULS have organized a movie night! After a long and close voting process you have decided to watch Artimos Šviesos (2009).

Careers Talk '13

The first semester has started leaving a lot of us thinking how to start on career path, what that first step is. Some of the current Edinburgh University students spent their summer not only lying in the sun at Grandma’s, but also worked hard in industry, banks, laboratories, were volunteering or discovering stars!
Our annual Careers Talk this year was held on the 27th of September at Dining Room, Teviot Row House. Current students shared their experiences and thoughts about future careers ranging from summer internships, volunteering to PhD studies, exchange year and Resident Assistant positions. Speakers were giving out tips on how to start building up skills and experience for future, how to start on applications, proceed through selection processes, and finally how to secure the position for yourself. This year we had seen a wide range of speakers from different disciplines.

1st half, speakers:
Greta Maciulevičiūtė (MEng Chemical Engineering) - Petroleum Development Summer Internship, Oman
Lukas Lastas (MA Hons Economics) - UBS Investment Bank Summer Internship, London

Short break followed by 2nd half.

Ignotas Šulženko and Lukas Diržys (BSc Computer Science) - Skyscanner Data Acquisition Interns, Edinburgh

After the speeches, we all moved to Teviot and Malone’s for further networking (and some free food too, wooo!). We are extremely delighted to have seen such a great turn out and we hope speakers have answered at least some of your questions J

All the best,
EULS team
