Traditional flavors introduced to students
Orientation days of European University of Lefke are still going on with the high level of participation of the students.
In the program organized for the students after the Lefke and the region visits, the students were served a traditional Cypriot taste called herse which is a dish of chicken and coarsely ground wheat. Students who tasted the herse prepared at the organization held at Lefke Turkish Sports Club said they liked the herse very much and were extremely pleased with the event organized for them.
The opinions of the people of the region and the parents about the activity;

We are very pleased with the education and interest of the university. I think Lefke is a complete student city. I recommend everyone. Offering herse was well thought out and organized. I would like to thank our university.

I think that the increase of such activities forms the basis of student-citizen interactions.
