From November 8 until November 19 2021, the Student Wellbeing Festival will take place, this time live on campus! It's all about having fun, relaxing, meeting other students and your personal development and wellbeing, including mental, physical, and social wellbeing.

What to expect?

The program includes keynotes and Q&A is with speakers such as top model Loiza Lamers and with Thijs Launspach, author of the book Fokking druk (busy). There are also sports activities such as kickboxing, extreme core workout, self-defence, volleyball tournament and ecstatic dance. Would you like to further develop and expand your skills? Then we have workshops on dealing with failure, procrastination, journaling, positive emotions, self-compassion and much more. You can also participate in workshops 'Cross the line' of 'Student loneliness' to break taboos about wellbeing.
