The Great Indian Dinner
Our Indian friends are going to cook an Indian dinner tonight! The best thing to warm up the Dutch winter: Indian friendship, and dishes cooked with enthousiasm.
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.

The Arnhem Student Point team consists of members from all the universities plus art school in Arnhem and Velp, but guess what we are in serious need of a Van Hall Larenstein student to complete us. We cook up intersting events and make posters and leaflets to announce them, We organize the Living Room evenings […]
Our dream is to have students from the three universities for applied science in Arnhem and Velp meeting and enjoying each others company. To see them grow as a person and as a community. Every year a team starts working on attractive small scale events to make our Tuesday living room lively, and explore new […]
