IxESN Wageningen gives you the Buddy Program! This is an initiative to have a lot of fun, make new friends and get to know other cultures and traditions. So the goal is stimulate integration between Dutch and International students and also to give the new students a warm welcome.
New international students will come to Wageningen every period. This city has a lot of opportunities to offer and nice places where you can go to. But who will show you these places? That is why we have Buddy Families, your temporary family abroad! This is a group of 3 mentors (buddies) and 15 international students. With this group you will do a lot of nice, crazy, fun, informative and cultural stuff. You can go to our activities, excursions, go swimming or have dinner together.
Besides all the fun things, a buddy will also help with a little more serious issues, for example if you do not know where the library is or where to get your OV-chipcard. The Buddies make sure that international students feel at home in Wageningen and have a memorable experience. IxESN will provide activities and will help to give the internationals a warm welcome.
IxESN Wageningen will offer you a lot of activities and will keep you up to date. You can do these activities together with your Buddy Family. Every month we will organize a Buddy Family activity, especially for the Buddy Families. Check our period schedule on the website (www.ixesn-wageningen.nl) or facebook.
