If you decide to study in Enschede it is also possible to join a student association. The four biggest student associations are gathered in “De Pakkerij” at the Oude Markt. Every association is different in nature, but there is one thing they all have in common: Sociability comes first. It shouldn’t feel as an obligation, but having fun and making new friends is what is important. Look at the websites of the associations to find out what appeals most to you and see how you can become a member. One of the interesting associations for example is AEGEE-Enschede because of its international character. AEGEE is a world wide organisation with connected associations in the whole of Europe.
