A Blog by International Students at Leiden University
It was a great honor for me to be able to attend the Grand Opening of “Anna van Buerenplein”, the main building of Leiden University College The Hague on 31st October. As a second-year student, I have seen the improvements LUC has made in the last academic year, and I have also got many surprises at LUC. Although I came all the way from China to a totally alien place, I feel so warmly welcomed that LUC motivates me to learn more, to explore more, and to enjoy more about the world. My lovely friends here chill with me; we study together and also hang out together very often. They are very caring and my homesickness lessens a lot because of friendship and the kind regards from LUC teachers. I am more than happy to study here, and I am sure that LUC will shine and glitter in the process of “building knowledge for a better world” (that’s our motto!).
Ready for the opening reception!
Free food! I have to be honest with my readers here,
that my favorite thing about formal events at LUC is…FOOD!
An amazing speech given by the Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs, His Excellency Mr. Frans Timmermans. Mr. Frans Timmermans focused on knowledge nowadays as a new world challenge, and encouraged LUC students and staff to explore more about Global Challenges, one of the main concepts of LUC The Hague curriculum.
