During your exchange you meet a lot of different people and let’s be honest, that’s the fun part of being in another country. But you might have noticed that your fellow internationals can use a different approach in living life – there’s not just one kind of international student.
Want to know which one you are? Look no further, we’ve listed all the different personalities, based on your zodiac sign. Find out what type of international student you are! (Because you really want to know.)
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
You’re not the kind of student who lives by the rules. As a matter of fact: you hate them. During your time in Utrecht you want to do whatever you want (and with who you want). Hold your horses beer: we got a wild one over here!
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You decided to start this year with the right attitude. Well, that is what you intended. You can’t help it that you’re a bit lazy every now and then. Why study if you have Netflix? Am I right? AM I RIGHT?
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
If there’s anyone a bit out of control lately, it’s you. Your parents and friends back home were a bit anxious and didn’t know for sure if they should let you go to Utrecht. But you did so anyways. Your mom calls you every night to make sure you’re alright.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Attending classes? Check. Straight A’s? Check. You’re the ideal student, Taurus. But what less people know, is that you have a dark side. And that dark side is the reason that everyone at Poema knows who you are and what you’ve done.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You’re the curious one with a high level of FOMO. If there’s a party or event, you HAVE to be there. You hate it to be alone for one night (“you should make the most out of it!!!”) so sometimes you just end up with some interesting strangers in an unknown bar.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Balance is a thing you live for. Partied too hard last night? Green juice and studying the next morning. Ate too many stroopwafels? Now, you’re restricted to salads. Until the next International Kitchen, of course.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
For you, image is everything. Were you too drunk in Poema last week and made some hilarious embarrassing Snapchats? You won’t leave your house until everyone forgot about it. And of course everyone will forget, you’re on Erasmus!
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You’re a slow learner, Virgo. At school, you always need a bit of a warm-up and then, just before the test, it hits you. BAM! So much knowledge. But it doesn’t always work that way. Maybe, after your tenth shot, you realize that drinking tonight wasn’t a good idea after all.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You’re the social one during your exchange. You plan the events and everyone will just show up. House party? At your place, of course. A trip to that boring museum? Everyone will go, because of your endless enthusiasm.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Oh, Scorpio, there is no other way to put it. You’re crazy. The worst ideas are yours (so are the funniest ones). If there’s someone who can make a night memorable, it’s you. Don’t let anyone stop you, please.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
We can always find you in the coolest places: that new hotspot over there, the trendy bar that just opened… You know where to find them, like it’s in your blood. If you and your friends need a new place to hang out, you’re on it.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You’re always having so much fun that you forget the one thing you’re actually here for: studying. (You’re laughing right now, because that’s DEFINITELY not the thing you’re here for.) No problem, it only results in long nights of studying your butt off at the end of the semester. Whatever: it was worth it.
