The main goal of the orientation committee is to make sure that new international and exchange students have a smooth transition and feel at home in Rotterdam and at the Erasmus University from the beginning. The orientation committee is particularly active in the beginning of each semester, for example by assisting during the ESN Intro Days, the Eurekaweek, and the One Stop Shop.
ESN Intro Days are three days wherein new students meet other, learn about the city of Rotterdam, the university, and student life. These days are packed with lots of fun events to connect with others from the first days that the students are in the city. In 2022, the Summer Intro Days will take place on the 21st until the 23rd of August.
Eurekaweek cannot be complete without the presence of ESN! During the Eurekaweek, this committee organizes fun events and initiatives to attract as many students as possible to ESN Rotterdam. Also, the preview of ESN Tuesdays is organized on the night of the Tuesday of the Eurekaweek. This night aims to be a HUGE party that the committee members get the chance to organize with the board of ESN Rotterdam.
At the one stop shop, new students get all the things they need to live in Rotterdam. This involves matters such as a BSN nummer, bank account, insurance, and so on. As ESN, we are there to invite them to their new university and home while we try to attract as many of them as possible to join the association and come have fun at our events!
