S. Lorenzetti - Participation in university life
SUPSI Image Focus
Simone Lorenzetti is a third-year Bachelor of Business Administration student, majoring in marketing and sales. In his spare time, he enjoys travelling and discovering new things. A member of the Student Association, he is also active in university life.
At SUPSI, it's not just study but also active participation in university life. In what form?
Since I started at SUPSI, I have participated in several activities offered by the Career, Experience and Advisory Services (CEO), such as the Art tour at LAC and the Career workshop that was organised together with the Student Association of which I am a member.
What do you do in the Student Association? What does it bring you personally and how do you think you can contribute to the student community?
I have been a member of the association since 2021. Initially there were only a few of us, the activity was practically finished with the pandemic. Then we started to make it known throughout the various departments and get more help. After being secretary, I am currently Strategic Co-President: I deal with activities more related to the future of the association, student participation and relations with the Swiss University Union (SUU). Thanks to this experience I am learning a lot about how an association works, I am getting to know the structure of SUPSI better and I am expanding my circle of acquaintances among students and associations active at national level. Our aim is to create togetherness among SUPSI students and make it grow outside of class hours.
Extra-curricular activities can allow you to explore your passions: can you tell us about your experience?
In my previous education, I took art history classes. The art tours I took part in allowed me to discover the exhibitions at the LAC, to regain my knowledge and enrich it.
How can these activities contribute to your personal and professional development even after you finish your studies?
I would like my critical artistic spirit to develop even more so that in the future I will be able to visit exhibitions in the cities I visit and fully appreciate them. Even if you don't have any prior knowledge of art (mine is really minimal), thanks to art tours you can learn a lot in a short time. And the best thing is that you don't have to do it in the classroom, in books, but you learn with the subject matter itself at hand.
