The ASP Experience

Warm voices come from upstairs, the bean bags are ready, the kettle bubbling. This is a place where you can just be, where you want to stay longer. A meeting point for strangers, where, despite your different point of view, you always somehow have something in common. A place that welcomes you, where you can discuss ideas that lie at the tip of your tongue. A place where you can have fun and find things beyond the mundane.

At home, you know everything and everybody. In a restaurant, you have to behave, in a bar everything becomes jolly quickly and the company has never been that good. This is a place to discover yourself, others, the world. A place that is different enough from the everyday world to shed new light on your place in life. Here you can get closer by looking from a distance. A place to get away from rules and that which is expected.

To do this, you need others. A walk can be inspiring, a shower enlightening, but ideas need other ideas, like people need other people. We’re always in a network. We, Arnhem Student Point, are the starting point, the meeting point, the focal point for doubt.

Or as Henry David Thoreau once said:

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”
