In the summer of 2019, as a new student of Philosophy, Politics and Society, I participated in the Radboud Intro. I had never been to Nijmegen before and luckily I had just been able to find a room in the city centre. It was very exciting and scary to start my study period in a strange city with unknown people, but after the first meeting with my mentor group the uncertainty disappeared immediately. After all, it is new for everyone!
From the start, I made friends and they are still my best friends today. That is what I like best about the orientation week. Together with your mentor group you do the funniest and craziest things for a week. We played lots of games, got to know the city and the nightlife, and had a great time at the closing festival.
Of course such a week is intense and tiring, but in the end it gives you so much. Because I participated in the orientation week, I knew my way around the city and the campus a lot better. I also already knew many classmates and older students who could help me in the first weeks of college. Through the orientation week I also got to know my study association very well, so a year later I even joined the board.
The Radboud Intro makes the start of your time as a student in Nijmegen easier and more fun. But most importantly: you will make friends for life!
