Buddy Box – Buddy

Click here for the Buddy Box Video (in Dutch)!

A large number of international students who study at ArtEZ, HAN and HVHL cannot or do not want to go home. There are also lots of Dutch students who find the current time difficult to deal with. They could all use some support.

Do you want to help us support these students, help them where you can and let them know they’re not forgotten? Then become a Buddy! Whoever you are, everyone can become a buddy  – even if you are an (international) student yourself and want to be a buddy to another (international) student.

What does this mean? You sign up via the sign-up form and you will be linked to a student. At home you fill a shoebox with goodies – for example, nice dried food, a good (English) book, drawings of your children, recipes, magazines and all sorts of other things that you think makes a student happy. You fill it with things you find beautiful, tasty or inspiring.

All goodies are fun, of course, but the most important thing are your contact details. You’re going to be an international student’s buddy. You only meet online, so think of fun activities that you can do together. Think of a nice course, eating together, playing an online game, practical tips, or just having a conversation with each other.

You send the shoebox to the student by mail. Shipping costs are for your account. Join the Arnhem Student Point Buddy Box and make a difference! Let students know that they are not alone and that they are not forgotten!
