The ESN Buddies are Dutch or international students from across the different faculties who know Rotterdam and like to share their knowledge and time with incoming exchange students who would like some help with their integration.
Buddies commit to making sure new students are being helped with all issues they might encounter during their stay in Rotterdam. Next to this, the Buddies are often involved in activities organized by the University. These activities are organized in order to facilitate students' integration.
Examples of these activities are: bike lessons, helping out with registrations, and assistance with city/campus tours.
