What are people saying about HMUN?
“Delegates take the conference very seriously, many of them doing research and preparing months in advance, seeing HMUN as their main Model UN event for the year. A quarter of the conference’s delegates come from outside the United States and many of them, like The Lyceum School from Pakistan featured last week, view coming to HMUN as a great honor.” – Best Delegate on HMUN 2012
“I am just writing to thank you and the Crisis Staff for making this past HMUN a most memorable experience. Not only that, but it was one of the most fun times I have ever had. When I look back now, with the conference fresh in my mind, I am stunned at the amazing job the directors did in forming such a creative and interactive committee. I felt so free and challenged to make critical, innovative, and imaginative decisions based on my character.” – a delegate from HMUN 2010
“Once again, thank you for running such an entertaining committee. As soon as I returned home, I began doing more research on the issue. I plan to follow the issue more closely for a long time to come. The intimate environment of the committee helped me make friends and really get to know my fellow delegates.” – a delegate from HMUN 2010
