A group of senior students from different degrees have offered tours of the facilities of the European University of the Atlantic and the University Residence for the new international students to get to know and become familiar with the university campus.
This initiative from UNEATLANTICO’s International Relations Office is led by María José Vargas, a student from the degree in Food Science and Technology. However, students from the different faculties such as Nicolás Llano, Natalia Castañeda, Alejandro Dueñas, Emilio Rosas, Sucely Solares, and Miguel Alejandro Ceballos have also participated.
In this way, the University has welcomed more than a hundred international students this academic year who will study a university degree at UNEATLANTICO. Thanks to these tours, they have had the opportunity to tour the campus facilities, such as the laboratories, the sports facilities, the assembly hall, the library, the radio and television studio, and the common areas of the Residence Hall.
In this sense, the senior students also provided them with all the information about the public transportation lines to move to the different places around the city, where to buy school supplies, the supermarkets, etc.
Karen Rodríguez, of Mexican origin, has been one of the many students who have had the opportunity to tour the campus thanks to the tours. “The University and Residence have very complete and large facilities that make it possible to respect social distancing,” the student commented.
The alumni have also shown their complete willingness to assist the new students at any time. In this sense, María José Vargas, pointed out that “these new tours provided by the more senior students implemented by the International Relations Office is of great importance for new students as it facilitates their incorporation into the University and Residence. In addition, it is much easier to relate and live with people of the same age and I am very happy with the activity’s positive outcome.”
