Can Tuesday be a fun day in a week? Let me show you how exciting Tuesday I had! Give a glance in a campus life in Delft.

 

Happy week of international student in Holland! Woke up with this fresh weather that has been rare for last few days.

With this weather, I was already fully motivated to report my exciting campus life in Delft.

After a journey, I finally arrived at the campus. This is the signature building of TU Delft, the library building. Today's weather was just amazing, the beauty of this architect shines even more bright.

Right after I arrived, I started to prepare the livestream that is planned on 12 pm. Today I will not only give answers for questions but also give a short campus life tour. You can watch the livestream on Study in Holland facebook! So much fun on the campus with my classmates :)

After the livestream, I had short lunch and play some Mario cart in the Study association common area. And now time to class.

A class usually lasts two hours with 15 minutes break in between. Since I study Engineering and Policy Analysis which is mostly about modeling using modeling software, a laptop is necessary for class.

In Holland, the class is very interactive. Students do not hesitate to ask anything they want to know about the class and the professor is also always willing to answer and teach more about what students want to know.

After 4 hours of class and practice session, time to relax and have some fun time with friends! Let's go have some beer in a faculty bar.

In TU Delft, every weekday different faculty bar opens. Each faculty building has their own pub that sells some beer and snacks to the students who are exhausted by study loads. It cheers us up and gives energy to keep going on!

Today is Tuesday, so architecture bar was open! Having a couple of beer with friends, joking and laughing.. in that moment we just forget about class and assignment but have fun.

After a long day, I finally came back home and prepare some food for myself.

Cooking simple, eating well :)

After eat, time to be buried in a blanket, read and do assignments. To maintain good student life in Holland you must make a good balance between study and relax :) Hope you guys enjoyed my report in week of international student Holland!
