This means that you as a participant will have great possibility to form and influence the activities and social events hosted by your WelcomeU club.
Each year new students leave their comfortable and known environment to study in a new city and for some students foreign country. This transition is often associated with finding living arrangement, learning to manage a tight budget with expenses to new books, laptop and social activities as a natural part of the transition to an independent life. In this transition old and secure environment are abandon and replaced by new which needs to be explored, tested and expanded. As a young student it is easy to be overwhelmed by the new and unknown.
The purpose with Welcome U is to make a difference for young people by active integration through volleyball and basketball. In cooperation with fraternities and students organizations the goal is to help new students to build a social network. Many experts are concerned about trends in youth cultures which shows a raise in the number of young people suffering from mental conditions that inflicts negative on their learning abilities and giving them a feeling of stress and general feeling of low wellbeing.
By participating in social games as volleyball and Basketball these problem areas can be addressed in more then one aspect. Thus Welcome U is a project initiated to support young people and students building a bridge between adolescent and adulthood based on physical activities, life quality and social well-being.
