Freshmen beginning their IE learning experience

At the start of the 2010 academic year, new students participated in a weeklong event of activities. The object was to help orientate them to their new lifes, living and studying at IE University. These activities included tours of the campus and the city of Segovia, and introductory workshops to the various services and courses. A highlight was an outdoor activity park where students had fun completing four different circuits, one of which featured was an enormous wire gliding course, with glides up to 160 meters, trapezes, rope bridges, nets and tree ropes. In the words of a new student: “It was really helpful. Most of the activities were challenging and helped us to start getting to know one another.”
All of their activities are aimed at helping new students form friendships with other students, alumni and faculty, and to become more comfortable in their new home.
As Ana Martin Lopez, director of the student office underlines: ”They had a lot of fun and really enjoyed the activities. A true learning experience.”
