On Friday, 5 May 2017, the Dutch marks Liberation Day. Many institutes of higher education will be closed for the day, including Wittenborg's Aventus Building at Laan van Menserechten 500 in Apeldoorn.
However, as many of Wittenborg's students are preparing for the coming exams in block 6, the institute's Spoorstraat Building in Apeldoorn will be open and fully functional as usual during office hours from 8am to 5pm.
(Students - if you have lectures on Friday at the Aventus Building, please check your timetable for room changes - lessons wil take place at the Spoorstraat).
Liberation Day is celebrated each year on the 5th of May to celebrate freedom and mark the end of World War II. It is preceded by Remembrance Day on 4 May to commemorate those who fought and died in World War II and wars in general.
Several activities are planned on Friday around the country including a Liberation Festival (free entry) in Apeldoorn at the Zwitsalterrein.
