International Holiday Of Pancakes! (2019-03-23)

Join us at the Common Room to celebrate and welcome Spring season on Saturday, the 23rd of March 2019! Come and try all the pancakes your heart desires from around the world! For example, in Russian culture pancakes symbolize the sun and the coming of Spring. Dutch, American, and Russian pancakes are only a few of the pancakes that will be prepared by us! Aside from the above mentioned recipes, we would like to ask YOU to post your favorite recipe, grandma's recipe, or one from back home on this event page! We will go through the posted recipes a few days before the event (TBA) and pick one to cook at the common room on this special day!!! Make sure to include the name of the pancake, origin, ingredients, and the method of making it when you share your recipes on this event page. Don't worry if your recipe was not the selected one! We have come up with an idea to share all your recipes by compiling them all in one nice tiny notebook and share it with everyone attending the event! This way, everyone gets to try out your recipe at home if they didn't get to do so at the common room. Come and join us in this celebration and invite your friends! The event is free to attend. Hope to see you there!

Preparing food in the Common Room will be difficult if everybody is cooking in the kitchen, so please prepare at home!

Honeymoon is over (2018-12-07)

When the honeymoon is over… "You arrived in Eindhoven this summer, new sceneries and gorgeous weather all around, and you fell immediately in love with your new local environment. Fine, but now the days have become darker and will soon turn grey and gloomy and then the honeymoon may well come to an end. Of course, you’re not a tourist anymore, but you’re studying here for good! Culture shock is now lurking. So take action, don’t let it happen and come to the workshop offered by Cosmos & ESA. There, you will learn what culture shock is and how to anticipate it before it’s too late. And oh yes… bring that one friend along who seems to suffer from culture shock, and together tell us your own stories! Because we want you to learn and exchange with your peers. See you then!" - Vincent Merk, senior trainer professional skills and Community advisor at ESA.
