Warm welcome for international students in Haarlem
Last Thursday September 15 Inholland Haarlem organised a Welcome Drink especially for the new (international) students of the degree programmes International Creative Business and Information Technology (first year). We want to offer our new (international) students a warm welcome, a platform and an opportunity to mingle, socialize and create a new network here in Haarlem. Therefore our Student Success Centre (SSC) organised this Warm Welcome-event.
Pub quiz and Study Associations
We divided the whole group of students in different teams to play a special pub quiz: the best way to get to know each other and find out more about the Netherlands and Haarlem. Kenneth & Andor, former students of Creative Business, were the best quizmasters ever! Students of the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) Haarlem, Sfere, Lepidoptera and International Office were also present at the Welcome Drink. ESN Haarlem organises events and fun stuff like cultural activities, international dinners, city trips and more for the international students of Inholland Haarlem. Sfere is the Study Association of International Creative Business and Lepidoptera the Study Association of IT. They organise activities, interesting guest lectures, parties and special study trips. To join these networks is the best way to meet new people and make new friends.
Student Success Centre (SSC)
Our Student Success Centre (SSC) wants to contribute to your study success. Tamanna, student IT and student buddy of SSC, welcomed everyone to the event: “Welcoming international students with a rich program of activities is vital to ensuring their overall success and wellbeing. It not only gives them the opportunity to bond and build friendships, but also helps them in embracing the new culture. Our SSC is a meeting place for and by students. You can get in touch with a student buddy, sign up for an event or follow a training course to work on both your personal and your study skills.”
