The changeover from one city to another, from a country to another, is not immediate. If you add to that the fact that you’ll have to stay at least 6 months in your new destination, everything gets a lot more complicated.
The association ESN Perugia, to simplify the adjusting process and generally improve the future Erasmus in Perugia, commits itself in welcoming in the best way possible the students in the city of Perugia. The no-profit, in fact, considers essential to help the incoming students during their first steps in the Umbrian territory. Strong of a decade long experience, to ease this process two projects have been developed: #BeFriend - Buddy System and the Welcome Days.
The #BeFriend project is focused on creating links with the association’s staff, in this case into the person of the tutor, and the Erasmus student, answering the student’s question, aiding him when necessary or introducing him in the reality on the ground.
The Welcome Days instead, correspond to a week of cultural, aggregational but also entertaining activities, aimed at making the erasmus know city, representatives of national and european institutions aside from facilitating the encounter between international students themselves.
