Apeldoorn Welcomes New University Students

Apeldoorn has thrown open its doors to welcome new University students to the town during a day of welcome festivities. Students from Wittenborg University, Saxion University and the Theological University were welcomed to the town by Alderman Johan Kruithof, and the day was followed by a series of activities ending in an evening of drinks and dance.

According to a spokesman of the City of Apeldoorn, “there were more than 100 students at the welcome speech, held at the city hall by the alderman, and clearly many of them were speaking English!”

Currently Apeldoorn has around 1000 University students and 8000 further education students.
