Every semester a lot of new people arrive to the beautiful city of Utrecht, awaiting a great new adventure. In order to give them the best start of their time here, we organise an Introduction Period. During this period we show them around Utrecht, have many nice activities and make sure everyone feels welcome and at home. This period consists of an Introduction Day and an Introduction Week. 

During the Introduction Day you guide a group of around 15 students. You show them everything Utrecht has to offer, while joining various activities. At the end of the day, we start the semester with a big Introduction Party. 

The Introduction Week is a week full of all different kinds of activities, taking place in the evening. As a mentor you join your group of around 10 students to all of these activities, as well as you’ll be there to help them to find their way around Utrecht at the beginning of their stay. You will be there, together with your co-mentor, to help adjust to the slightly crazy Dutch culture and the way of life for a student in the Netherlands. After the Introduction Week you can meet up regularly, go out for drinks, have dinner together, go to the ESN activities together; basically have a lot of fun!

In order to do all of this, we need enthusiastic volunteers! Do you like to give this experience to new incoming students? You can sign up to become a guide or mentor now!

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at the following email address: integration@esn-utrecht.nl, and we will shortly get back to you. We hope to see you very soon!
