Manzara No.1

No: 1

2015 / 1


Dear Alumni and Friends,

Welcome to the inaugural edition of Manzara. We know that this word, which means “view” in Turkish, has special memories associated with it for every member of the Boğaziçi community. For us, “manzara” evokes the University’s central meeting point, a place to come together with friends and enjoy the beauty of our campus and breathtaking views of the Bosphorus. Our hope is that this newsletter will act in much the same way, bringing our community together and offering it a view of the just a few of the accomplishments, events, and individuals that make up the rich tapestry of our University. We welcome your feedback, especially on items that you would like us to include in future editions.

On behalf of all of us at the Office of International Relations, we wish you and your loved ones much happiness throughout 2015 and look forward to seeing you in NYC in April!
