Mikel starts his first year of Software Engineering

"I'm looking forward to meeting many new people of different nationalities."

For Mikel (18) it is no real bother, the fact that his first year as a student in Venlo is off to a unusual start. In fact, he’s kind of used to it. Although he was born in Germany he graduated from high school in the United States and then went on to study at university in Berlin. “I only moved to Venlo one week ago and am living between packed and unpacked boxes right now. Other than my flatmates I haven’t gotten the chance to meet other people so I’m happy that school has started so that I can meet new people.”

“I’m studying Software Engineering at Fontys Venlo and am looking forward to it. Especially to meet new people who have different nationalities. Obviously this is a different start to the school year but we already do so much online that I don’t think it’ll be difficult to meet new people and meet up to do things.”

Welcome to Venlo, Mikel!
