Office of Self-motivated Groups – ÖCSI
Öntevékeny Csoportok Irodája (ÖCSI) is one of the largest student organizations at the university, consisting of almost 150 members. Since 1972 we assist the integration of the newly accepted students to the university by organizing events. Our main happenings are the Freshman Camp and Freshmen’s Ball, however, we provide other fun activities and camps in order to make everyone’s first year memorable. The members of our organization, called instructors, also find the time to arrange as well as participate in team building activities or in workshops where they can strengthen their skills in different fields and spend some quality time together. We offer numerous ‘working sections’ linked to event organizing so everyone can find what is suitable for them.

We offer various programs during the whole year:
We start off with Freshman Camp every August, followed by the Registration Week’s team building activities. During autumn the AfterGlow Days and the Freshmen’s Boat Party take place but our biggest hit is the Freshmen’s Ball which is East-Central Europe’s largest party event organized in a historical building.
Spring is mainly about accepting new members to our organization, although we never forget about the Carnival in February! After everyone’s successful exam period we begin to get ready for the Freshman Camp with lots of preparation throughout the summer so the newly accepted students have an unforgettable week in August and a chance to make friendships for a lifetime.
