Saxion Introduction
This year we will set up an online festival area for our first-year students! This is the central location of the Saxion introduction. During the first months of studying at Saxion, you can go back to this online area for information and help to find your way within Saxion and student life. Different squares will be set up. For example a 'Help! I'm a student now'-square where you can find information about the service point, the printing service and the living/sports/student life in Enschede, Deventer & Apeldoorn. There will also be an academy square where each academy has an online booth to present their teachers and student associations. Plus a tour of the academy! Keep an eye on the Saxion Introduction page!
