Students and staff from Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences teamed up last week to host a virtual meet-and-greet with international students who are to start the new academic year in September. The students logged in from a diversity of countries including Japan, Georgia, India, Nigeria, Iran and Cameroon. Even Wittenborg CEO Maggie Feng joined in specially from her summer holiday to give them all a warm welcome.
Virtual Meet & Greet
Last week, Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences organised a virtual meet and greet with eight master's students and four bachelor's students from Iran, Tanzania, Nigeria and India, currently still in their home countries due to COVID-19-related travel restrictions. Travel plans were the main topic of discussion at the event as many countries, including the Netherlands have now gradually started lifting their travel restrictions. Everyone remains optimistic and confident that they will be able to start classes in late August.
Wittenborg staff and new students were engaged in a virtual ‘Meet & Greet’ session via Teams on Wednesday, 13th May, 2020, for almost 2 hours, from 10:20 a.m. till just before 12:00 p.m. About 20 staff members and more than 30 new students from different parts of the world were present throughout the session.
