06-07-2021 On the 6th of July we organized a casual beach volleyball tournament, bringing twenty students and thirty refugees together in teams to play for the first spot. After an intense two group round robin phase, the two best teams of each group were matched against each other in semifinals. The tournament then peaked in an epic final game with a full stand of supporters! Of course, there could only be one winner, and that winner got a nice prize and has been captured in our hall of fame (below). We enjoyed the music, the weather and the sports so much, ...

31-3-2021 On the last day of March, the culture committee organised the first event of spring: the painting workshop.

Luckily, everyone had the choice between two different tutorials to follow, both with different difficulty. In the end we showed each other what we had made and some even continued working on their paintings afterwards. It was a great evening, where we could all show our creativity and, most importantly, have fun. Thank you to everyone who participated! ...
