Crocheting workshop

The Living Room is back with another great workshop! 🧢🀩⁠

On the 15th of March at 16:00, our fellow student Gabie will give you a crocheting masterclass. No matter what your current crocheting level is - beginner, intermediate or advanced - join us for the masterclass free of charge! ⁠

⁠Why crocheting? Crocheting is not only a great stress-buster, but it also contributes to mindfulness and relaxation, and helps with depression and anxiety. Multiple studies show that crocheting helps releasing serotonin in the body, leading to a wide host of health benefits. ⁠

Wellbeing Monitor

In order for Erasmus University Rotterdam to support you as well as we can, it is vital for us to understand your wellbeing and your needs in order to study healthily and enjoyably. As such, we ask you to participate in our annual Student Wellbeing Monitor. Have you already filled in this survey last year? Then we encourage you to participate again!

Our Student Wellbeing Monitor contains questions about your general health, wellbeing, mood, coping, experience at the university, and studying. Filling in the survey is voluntary, and data will be processed anonymously. By filling in the survey, you help us serve your needs and interests as a student. You also help us see how things evolve over time.

To thank you for your important input, you can enter a raffle with other participating students to receive (100, 50, and 15 euro) gift vouchers for bol.com.

Completing the survey can take up to 30 minutes and can be submitted until 22 November 2021.

About the survey

This survey is carried out in collaboration with the Student Wellbeing Program and the scientists of EUR. We use validated questionnaires. The research has been approved by the ethical committee of the EUR.

Want to know more about the survey? Take a look at the MyEUR page. Interesting highlights of the study will also be published there.

Join the practice to deepen your mind-body connection and to give yourself the present of your own divine presence ✨
