Guys, I know many of you are celebrating Easter. That’s why I decided to celebrate with you by updating the Erasmus weekly flag and offering an edition of funny Erasmus student quotes. My Easter will be a bit later on (orthodox), but an extra reason for sharing moments is always welcome.


So, first of all, how many of you remember Erasmus’s weekly flag? If you don’t, check this article later. Those who’ve been Erasmus know that we looove to buy a flag and ask all Erasmus friends to write on it. (Find out at the bottom of the page how you can sign the Erasmus weekly flag.) If you haven’t been Erasmus yet, your most important investment will be that flag that you’ll buy. Trust me, even though you will leave it somewhere and forget about it in time, when you find it, that character from Lord of the Rings will get into you, and you’ll say that famous “MY PRECIOUS”. :))

Ok, now let’s get to some serious things. I hope you all know Desiderius Erasmus (Dutch Philosopher), who is the one and only “to blame” for inspiring this unique experience called Erasmus. Apart from that, along with his life, he has written many fascinating quotes. Let’s turn these fascinating quotes into funny Erasmus student quotes.

I’m sure that Desiderius Erasmus wouldn’t be proud of us…but I’m also sure he’d be glad to know how grateful we are for offering a lifetime experience to students around the world. A unique experience like Erasmus can sure inspire you to write some funny Erasmus student quotes. If you have any ideas, I’d be glad to create a graphic and share them, together with your nametag, of course. Let’s have a small competition between experienced Erasmus students, shall we? If you have ideas, write to me on Instagram or Facebook. We’ll put all of them to vote and see whose quote is the funniest. Everything will be JUST FOR FUN.


P.S. If you want to sign the Erasmus weekly flag, write your Erasmus story, send it to erasmusweekly@gmail.com together with a photo (I will create a graphic for you). End of story!
