Our event started close to the reception where we were offering cocktails and small bites to our guests. Part of our audience came from the theatre where they already went through a short prologue by our friend Biljana to put them into the mood.
When everybody arrived at The student hotel we started. Our goal was to lead the audience into a light entertainment mood, which is the mood you will find a the Student hotel on the evenings. It was at first a bit of a challenge but slowly people got into it. We divided them into three groups. This is where Roxanna our student assistant explained the rules of the international student games, while Olivia took her first group for a tour. The beer pong got taken over by a group of “future international students” not yet in the age to drink, who threw the ball in the cups and designated then the person who would have to drink. On the other side, another group was playing "never have I ever", sharing their deepest secrets. We learned about an old man who had group sex, a bearded man who drunk his own pee, a woman who killed a mammal among others.
The international students observed with distances. Despites the one who really joined and helped, most got a bit intimidated by so much external adult in their homes.
During the tour, people had the chance to access the rest of the building, the cleaning room, the long corridors, the international student’s doors, the kitchen etc.
