In Radboud University is organized a Welcome week at the end of august for students to meet. I didn't go but their also was a Welcome Weekend in september. When you register you get a welcome pack with some goodies and the Radboud sweater !! During the welcome weekend we were divided in groups with mentors from the university. We hang out all together all weekend, we had a bowling night, we went partying, ... And we stayed close all semester, we organized swimming by the river every weekends for example. We were really close and I easily met people thanks to the Welcome Weekend!
My engagement with ESN Nijmegen
I became a volunteer at ESN Nijmegen when I started my Erasmus there. They were planning events to learn Dutch, discover the culture, and meet new people. Every Tuesday, we'd meet in bars to party. Nijmegen has a small city center and all the bars are on the same street, making it easier to hang out.
Plus, every Wednesday another association organizes dinner for 3 euros. We'd meet up and have a nice entire meal near campus.
