“I expected rain”

Meet the freshmen


“I didn’t expect Europe to be so hot, I expected rain, especially in the Netherlands”, says Nga Janda (18) from Zimbabwe. She is sitting in the sun before the building of the school of Business and Economics. “I have never been in the Netherlands before. I have visited the UK, France and Ireland. I like the diversity in Maastricht. Fifty percent of the students is from abroad.” So far she has met one other student from her home country. “Jack, he is half Irish, half Croatian, but has lived in Zimbabwe. I would like to encourage more African students to come to Maastricht and create a community. Now we have just a few.” Not that she is lonely. The first friends are made.
