Bram Hoogerheide

September 2016 marked the beginning of my time at the University. I had just finished high school and moved out of my parents house at the other side of the country. Once I arrived here in Enschede, I was a bit overwhelmed by al the possibilities this city and the different associations had to offer. My ambitions were already there when I moved to Enschede, but were maybe a bit too big for a new student. I became a member of Audentis, did multiple committees and got really fun roommates. I wanted to do too much all at once, which resulted in my study no longer being my top priority. Needless to say, I failed that first year. Luckily I managed to pull myself together and started an new program. In my second year here, I had found a balance between studying and social activities. Everything went great, but I couldn’t shake the feeling that my student years were missing something. So when I were asked to do a full-time board year at Audentis, I simply couldn’t decline. The board year went by and I returned to the University to resume my education. It’s going great so far, but there is still a chapter missing in my time here in Enschede. I have experienced serious personal growth and learned a lot the past few years. Now I feel it is time to help others get the most out of their time as a student. Whether this is in your education, sports, committees or a board year; we as DAS fight for your goals and ambitions!

From ambition to success!
