Student Organization


The Ateneo Association of European Studies Students (Ateneo AEuSS) is an organization that provides an avenue for students who share an interest in the diverse ways that the Philippines and Europe interact. Through its various projects, AEuSS hones its members to become globally competitive by immersing them in various perspectives pertinent to European Studies— diplomacy, politics, culture, business and the economy.
Ateneo AEuSS is the home organization of European Studies students and, with unity in diversity as one of its key principles, non-EU majors are also welcomed to join. The organization provides a platform for members to develop a critical understanding of Europe, the European Union and how these regional movements interact with the Philippines and the rest of Southeast Asia, especially along the lines of International Relations, Business and Economics. It is hoped that what the organization pursues is able to empower future leaders of thought and industry.
With a variety of global issues occurring daily, AEuSS provides a unique European perspective, rooted in the Philippine locale, in understanding the world.
The Association of European Studies Students envisions itself as the premiere organization in the Loyola Schools Community that offers quality development and training in line with the values of the European Union and Philippine culture-rootedness skilled in the fields of business, politics, and culture to form a community of capable Ateneans in the goal of uplifting the Philippine condition and propelling the nation into a competitive and formidable international player.

The Association of European Studies Students forms its members through the provision of developmental avenues for leadership focused on the promotion of responsible citizenship, critical analysis on European political and economic perspectives and the broadening of world vision and its relation to the Philippine context.
