Student statements


“The organizers and staff made us feel very welcome”

“During NEWDAY we went on excursions and had many fun social events, these played a big role in the fun, accessible and vibrant atmosphere that was present.”

The keynote speakers were very good

“The agenda setting of the program is a perfect example of the quote ‘Not all classrooms have four walls’".

“One of the most important parts of both the [NEWDAY] curriculum and the [NEWDAY] experience was dialogue. We both learnt about the importance of dialogue in academics and politics, and in cross cultural communication. As attendees, we were encouraged to engage in dialogue with the lecturers and each other, and different perspectives were always welcome.”

“The atmosphere between the organizers created a cozy and comfortable feeling for the students to talk freely and make inspiring conversations.”

“Overall a really amazing experience!”
