Meet & Greet Hanoi , Vietnam

IOB has always had the pleasure of welcoming several Vietnamese students to Antwerp every year . Organizing an alumni meet and greet session to bring all of those alumni together again after all those years has therefore been high on our wish list . When Prof . Nathalie Holvoet was planning to travel with her family to Vietnam , this seemed like a perfect opportunity to organize a get together .
So , on Friday the 5th of August it was finally time for a longawaited IOB alumni meet and greet in Vietnam . 24 former IOB students and Nathalie Holvoet (& family ) met in the Café ‘ Le Petit Bruxelles ’ in Hanoi , Vietnam . It was a happy encounter !
“ Many Vietnamese alumni have been waiting a long time for this first-time-ever meet and greet ! The combination of a dear IOB professor , home-made food at a Belgian restaurant and IOB exclassmates has brought our unforgettable memories back to life .
For some alumni , it was reliving of shared memories to Antwerp : stressful study schedule and assignments at IOB , new and challenging knowledge , inspiring lectures , kind professors and supportive administrative staff , Belgian beers and chateaus , ‘ Antwerpen Centraal ’ and student - budget trips throughout Europe , cultural confusion from the first time living away from homes , etc . For others , it was a pleasure to get to know new people with similar interests and shared experiences . IOB has been and will always be an important chapter in our life !”
Contact information was shared to keep in touch and future plans for more alumni activities were made … This was only the beginning !
Our thanks go to Mrs Mai Thanh Tu and Ms Dang Bao Nguyet ( Luna ) for their help in the organization of the alumni event !
