Open Day - Britt
During the Open Day of University College Roosevelt, I learned more than I did when spending hours of reading about UCR on several websites. The Open Day showed me the actual student community, the buildings, the atmosphere and Middelburg itself, a place where I would be living for the next three years. Current students, helping at the Open Day, took the time to answer all my questions and showed me their rooms at several campus locations. Meanwhile, they shared many stories about UCR and their exciting student lives. When the day came to a close, we ended up on the terrace of a café on the market square, still talking about UCR; there was just so much to share.
Attending an Open Day at University College Roosevelt gave me the final push to apply because after experiencing life in Middelburg I felt that I wanted to be part of it.
