A big success in sports for Eva Mori, a student at the School of Humanities

Sept. 18, 2017

On Sunday, 17 September, 2017, the Women’s U23 World Championship in volleyball took place in the Stožice hall in Ljubljana. The Slovene team, led by a student at the University of Nova Gorica’s School of Humanities, Eva Mori, achieved an immense success – U23 World Championship silver medal.

Eva Mori is also captain of the Slovenia women’s national volleyball
team and was named the best setter during this world championship.

By becoming vice-champions, the Slovene team certainly created by far the greatest historic moment for female volleyball in Slovenia.

Since we are well aware of the importance of an active lifestyle, especially in one’s youth, we enabled all the sportsmen and sportswomen who study at the University of Nova Gorica to experience study programs that are in in line with current scholarship yet designed in such way that they support the students’ sports goals. We are the first university in Slovenia to offer the status of athlete to all athletes who are registered as competitors and who actively take part in competitions. Acquiring the status of an athlete as defined by the National Olympic Committee is not a prerequisite for obtaining the status of athlete at UNG.

Please find more information on the study for sportsmen and sportswomen at UNG here: “www.ung.si/en/study/student-guide/athletes/”

Congratulations to the girls and we wish them a lot of success in the future as well!
