      “As a Student Guide you are encouraged and expected to help our fresh batch of students become familiarised with SBE, what was in it for you?”
      “Last year, I really got excited when I saw that they were looking for Student Guides. I learned so much during my first year in Maastricht and I wanted to share my experiences and little tips with others, so this was the perfect opportunity. It doesn’t only include being a guide, though. I met awesome people who made it really easy for my fellow guides and me to enjoy organising the community activities throughout the year. Every year, so many interesting new people come to SBE and you would definitely miss out if you wouldn’t take the opportunity to get to know them.”
