As a newbie you’re still not sure how you feel about MUNs, will you like it or not so you usually go for the smaller conferences, probably ones that your university/school is organizing and this fits in your student budget
As a veteran, small conferences don’t give you the thrill you look for. You need something bigger and better. So you go for the “famous” MUNs. You know, the ones with 1000+ delegates, plenty of committees to choose from and preferably you opt for the ones outside of your country.
For veterans this is just another stop on your way to the good time. You’ve done this before, you know where to look for information, the whole paper is basically in your head and the hardest thing is the fact that you have to sit and write it down.
As a newbie, this is your big day, your time to shine. Those hours and hours of research are finally gonna pay off. Your only concern is the opening speech and everything that comes after it. But when you let go of your unnecessary concerns nothing's gonna stop you from raising that placard as high as you can and proving everyone that your resolution is THE ONE.
When you enter the conference room as a veteran MUNer it feels like you entered the Garden of Eden. The sun is shining, birds are singing everything is in its place. You take your seat, take a look at the rest of the delegates, deliver amazing speeches, pass some notes and watch as everyone joins your block without a second of lobbying.
Socials are the perfect opportunity to find out if your co-delegates are real humans or 20-somethings hungry for world power. And they are humans, just like you! This is one of the moments that is gonna make you fall in love with MUNs - meeting all this different people from all around the world with goals just like yours. And before you know it you have made friends for life.
No matter how many MUN conferences you've attended, this is the part that never changes and never gets easier. Reality is calling and it says that your MUN carriage is gonna turn into pumpkin. So take pictures with your new besties, exchange numbers and stick to that promise that you’re gonna see each other before the next conference.
