ESN's main objective is to ensure that every student coming for an exchange at a university where an ESN section is present is warmly welcomed, receives all the information he needs and gets rapidly involved in the local student life. To achieve this goal, ESN sections organise a number of activities and provide different kinds of services.
During the first week of semester we usually provide information events. They include orientation sessions organised by the International Office and ESN Bergamo; during these sessions students are informed about university procedures, official formalities and the events planned for them during the semester. In addition, the orientation week often includes city tours, pub-crawls, one or several welcome events, guided tours of the campus, etc. The information events offer the best possibilities to get to know the city, the university, and most importantly, to meet other exchange as well as local students.
Welcome events, which take place during the first weeks of the semester, are usually the first occasion for new exchange students to meet each other in a laid-back atmosphere and get involved in local student life for real. Information about welcome parties can be found on our website or/and on our Facebook profile.
TRIPS, EXCURSIONS & CULTURAL ACTIVITIES
We organise trips and excursions to other cities, cultural hotspots or natural landmarks. Moreover, we are involved in sports activities, such as Futsal tournaments and skiing days .
