Back to the campus: ‘I felt bored sitting at home’

As of April 26, physical education is permitted again. In practice, this means that students attend on-campus lectures one day a week. A relief for some, but lecturers need some time to get used to it.

Alex is a Master’s student of Industrial Design at TU/e and was bored at home. He no longer attends lectures, but he finds it ‘relaxed’ that he is once again allowed to go to the campus. “The hardest thing is that you work, eat and sleep in the same room. As a result, you enter into a vicious circle of sleeping, eating, working in the same area.” His friend Max, who obtained his degree from the same Master’s program in January, adds: “It’s difficult to keep up that rhythm. I was following an internship at Philips at a certain moment, but I’ve really only been there two or maybe three times. I spent the rest of my time at home.”

First-year Mathematics student Pebbel is very happy with the relaxation of the measures. “The past year wasn’t what I had expected when I started with my studies.” Lecturer of Intercultural Communication Vincent Merk can’t suppress a grin on his face either. “I had to think back for a moment to what it was like to teach without having to sit behind a computer screen. But returning to physical education was really fun.”
