WHO WE ARE
The CEF Gaudeamus Student Association – Timişoara Veterinary Medicine Branch is a division of the CEF Gaudeamus NGO created for students of the English and French sections of the USVT Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.
The mission of our association is to unite USVT veterinary students from both the English and French sections across all academic years. We aim to foster a sense of community through a diverse range of events spanning sports, culture, and professional development. Our goal is to support every student, with a keen focus on easing the transition for newcomers into our vibrant community.
Throughout the academic year, our association curates a variety of events designed to enrich student life. These include welcoming activities for new students, competitive tournaments, sports events, insightful conferences, networking opportunities for professional growth, and excursions that showcase the beauty of Romania and its rich cultural tapestry. Our themed evenings, such as Halloween, movie nights, and dance parties, infuse campus life with energy, offering students a chance to unwind and forge lasting connections beyond the classroom.
We believe that true education extends beyond the classroom walls, and our activities are designed to complement your academic journey with real-world experiences and learning. Every member brings something unique to our community, and together, we create a mosaic of talents, interests, and cultures that enrich our collective experience. As we continue to expand our offerings and reach within the student body, we invite you to be an active participant, to contribute your ideas, and to help shape the future of our association. This inclusivity and active engagement are what propel us forward, making every moment spent with us an opportunity for growth, learning, and unforgettable experiences.
Membership grants access to an array of clubs catering to a wide range of interests. Whether you’re passionate about sports (Rugby, Cheerleading, Volleyball, Basketball, Tennis, Football, etc.), leisure activities (Cinema, Board games, Creative arts, Reading, Theater, Music, Role playing, etc.), or seeking exclusive educational opportunities, our association is your gateway to a fulfilling university experience.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the dedicated student volunteers whose efforts make these clubs and events possible year-round.
This year, we are proud to welcome 259 new members into our fold. Join us and be part of something extraordinary. Together, we create memories, pursue passions, and build a supportive network. Your journey with us is just beginning.

Clara Froger, Cheer Coach 3Y EN
Our cheerleader club exists since October 2022. We are a mixed group of 40 cheerleaders who perform at various sporting/festive events along the year. Our main objective is to create a show mixing dance acrobatics and visual effects. We are mainly preparing a show for the REVER, a meeting for French veterinary students expatriated in Romania, which takes place once a year. This event is an inter-faculty competition. We are also present at events organized by the university such as the 24 hours of sports, the princess cross country or the SCM USV Timisoara rugby matches. The training sessions are supervised by Marine Burvelle, Antonin Jusserandot and Clara Froger, and requires above all cohesion and team work. We would be very happy to show what we can do at your sporting events.
Mathieu Blin, Rugby Coach, 4Y FR
My name is Mathieu BLIN, I am 25 years old and I am in my 4th year of Veterinary Medicine in the french section. I started playing Rugby at the age of 10 and I played for the same club for 9 years, especially as an inside centre (n.12). I coach the AEMVT-Gaudeamus men’s and women’s teams since last year and I play as a scrum-half (n.9) in the men’s team. Last May, we won the competition during the REVER against the students of Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca and Iasi. As well as I wished to play again, I wanted to help other students to discover this sport in which everyone can reveal themselves ! A successful gamble among french students because we are approximatively 40 people at each training session, every Saturday morning. I hope that student Rugby will continue to grow in order to consider futures matches with other faculties or universities !
Axel Higonnet, Tennis Coach, 3Y FR
Janice Godiard, Tennis Coach, 3Y FR
Tennis is really a tough sport. It’s very technical and it takes time to start making exchanges with someone else. It’s for motivated, stubborn, people who like persevering in difficulty. If you think, you match to the description overhead, come join us! We accept all levels from beginners to advanced people. When you reach a good level, tennis is very appreciable. In one hand it could be a competitive sport and the other hand it could be a way out of your daily routine inasmuch as you will clear your mind and free negative tension. Tennis doesn’t need strength, it’s much more cardio that means you will sweat a lot and be winded. It’s suitable for joints since it’s not too much traumatic, especially on clay court that absorbs impacts. Last year, we organise one tournament between April and May. We thank the coaches Petru and Narcis to let us play freely on the court and to afford us the equipment needed to play tennis. It’s very pleasant to work and to make sport with them.

The REVER is an annual event for foreign vet students.
This meeting was created in 2022 and regroups undergraduates from the four Romanian Faculties of Veterinary Medicine of Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Iasi, and, of course, Timisoara.
It takes place over a long weekend, during which participants compete in a variety of sporting, intellectual, and festive trials. After two editions in Cluj Napoca and in Bucharest the third will be held in our western city in April 2024! This one is currently organized by a team of student members of the AEMVT-Gaudeamus, the association for foreign vet students in Timisoara, with the precious help of the USVT.
Moreover, the theme for this edition will be “The Conquest of the West”, so bring out the cowboy in you!
