Dutch Pubquiz, International Coffee Hour, International Drink at Coco's, Dutch Culture Night and the Exchange Opening Party. So many ISN events last week! We're celebrating our 20 year anniversary, so we had activities every single day last week! Which ones did you join? The pictures will be uploaded soon on our Facebook page



1st Buddy Activity: the Beer Bike!
Date: 15-09-2016
Time: 14.00-17.00
Price: €15,00
Location: Spuistraat 74A

The moment all of you Dutch and International buddies have been waiting for (of course) is finally here: next week is our first buddy activity and we're going to cycle around in Amsterdam on a BEER BIKE!
As some of you may know, from the start of 2017, beer bikes are going to be forbidden in Amsterdam. That means you guys are probably going to be the last ones who can tell their kids later that, back in the days, you've driven a beer bike in Amsterdam when you still could! ;)

This awesome activity is available for only €15! We have LIMITED spots available, so come to our office as quick as possible to get your tickets! 
We're open every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1 till 5 PM (Nieuwe Achtergracht 170, room 1.15) so that means you have exactly ONE WEEK! Hope to see you there! Check out the Facebook event for more info!

(Please be aware of the fact that drinking under the age of 18 years, is illegal in the Netherlands. If you are under 18, you can only drink soft drinks. It's forbidden to bring spirits to the tour.)


To participate in this activity, you have to participate in the Buddy Program. 
(If you're not, but you are however an international student, you could check this event regularly to see if it isn't sold out yet and if not, join us a bit before 2 pm at the 15th to get your ticket. Please note we can never guarantee they're still availble for you then.)

Daytrip to Rotterdam and Delft!
Date: 17-09-2016
Time: Bus departs at 10.45
Price: €17,00
Location: Victoria Hotel

Join us on a trip to the most beautiful city of the Netherlands: Rotterdam! (after Amsterdam of course ;) )

For only 17 euros we will take you to South-Holland for a day, to the cities of Delft and Rotterdam.
First we'll do a tour through little scenic Delft, one of the best-known student cities of the Netherlands. Afterwards we'll have lunch and go to modern and industrial Rotterdam, also known as 'Manhattan aan de Maas'. Here you'll also have some free time to explore the city by yourself! Get your tickets at the ISN office this week on Monday, Wednesday or Friday between 1 and 5 pm! If you're not convinced yet, check out this list with 21 reasons to love Rotterdam!

For a third year in a row ISN Amsterdam and Yes-Trips are teaming up to provide you with a unique and EPIC experience! After the success of last year we are heading back to the biggest beer festival in the world: Oktoberfest! The Germans are well known for drinking beer, but once, every year, they go crazy for 3 weeks. During this national party more than 6 million people head to Munich to enjoy Bavarian culture to the fullest and you can be one of them! The following things are included: Transportation to Munich and back, Breakfast both days, Accommodation at our campsite: tents, sleeping bags and air matrasses will be provided, just bring a pillow! A survival guide in order to make sure you know all the traditional stuff and a great team of guides that will make sure you have a great time (and make it home safe).


September in Amsterdam
Amsterdam is well-known for its many festivals; from May on you can visit a different festival every weekend, all summer long! In September the festival season is coming to it's end, but this means there'll be a lot of season closing events this month! Aside from these dance festivals, plenty of other events will take place in Amsterdam and surroundings. Check out this monthly calendar for all the September highlights in Amsterdam!

Dutch (delicious) food!
So you've been in Amsterdam for a few weeks now, did you try any of the typical Dutch food, except of the stroopwafels? Did you already eat kaassoufflé, frikandel, broodje kroket, patatje oorlog, drop or poffertjes? Or the (for foreigners) less-known stamppothete bliksem, ontbijtkoek or rijstebrij? Probably not. Shame on you! Well, you'll have plenty of time the next few months to try all these delicious Dutch dishes! Check out this buzz-feed list for some specific places in Amsterdam to try some good food! (The list also contains some 'normal' food recommendations, if you don't like the typical Dutch taste).

This week the ISN Dutch lessons will start! Did you already sign up for them but want some extra help with your Dutch at home? Or were you too late for our lessons but still want to learn the basic expressions and words to get around in Amsterdam? Check out this online Immigration Dictionary! This dictionary contains all the Dutch expressions and sayings you'll need in everyday life during your exchange!

Meet the Student of the Week!

Henriette  is a member of our Activities committee, and she did a great job last week organizing the ISN Pubquiz! Thanks for that! :) We'll let her introduce herself: 
I 'm Henriette from Norway, I am here in Amsterdam to do a master in business and administration. I chose Amsterdam cause I had heard so many good things, and I really liked the study program. So far I really like it,  so much that I am actually considering to stay after Im done with my studies. I decided to become active in ISN cause I wanted to meet new people, and also I love to plan things, so the activity committee was a good fit for me :)
