This year - more precisely April 8th - Mercator College turned 10 years old. That is of course a reason to celebrate and we had a series of great events in honor of this special occasion!
It all started off with the Mercator CID, turning the original Mercatorian concept of the CID (country information day) into an impressive journey through the "lands of Mercator", where Mercatorians presented their special talents in musical performances, dances, a fashion show and much more (see CID pictures).
The story went on with the spectacular Blue Party at H3 on Saturday night. With the whole location kept in blue and white, a huge blue cake and some special effects the party was a widely appreciated success and did definitely justice to the 10th anniversary of our beloved college! (Party pictures)
The following Sunday brought the rather relaxing but very inspiring vernissage of the 11th Mercator Art Contest, where the amazing art pieces of about 20 artists were exhibited and the winners selected and honored by a jury.
Finally, the actual anniversary was celebrated as Mercator Day on Monday, April 8 with plenty of activities during the whole day, including chocolate fountains, mosaic making, Wii games and more. Of course the day culminated in the formal dinner at night, following the award ceremony for our Mercator Awardees 2013, Gabriela and Robin. (Mercator Day pictures)
Thanks to everybody who participated in this extraordinary events series and made these days so memorable!
