International Students celebrate the Dutch tradition of Sinterklaas


Sinterklaas / Saint Nicholas / Sint Nicolaas’ eve Celebration is a traditional Dutch winter holiday celebrated in the Netherlands. To celebrate the integration between the Dutch and Non-Dutch members of the University of Twente, UniTe organised the event where everyone came together and celebrated this Dutch tradition which is dear to every Dutch kid and grown-up alike on this day at the Bastille. The event was made possible with the support of Sirius and Student Union.


Around 50+ international students and dutch students were present at the event and had fun enjoying the tradition. With dutch music playing, they played games and exchanged gifts over a cup of hot chocolate milk!
