International Introduction Week
Whatever studies you chose in engineering, good preparation is always nice – new culture to experience, new people to meet, new place to live, and a lifetime of memories to enjoy! Welcome to International Introduction Week!
So, let’s get down to business, what can you expect from the introduction week?
SV. Innovum – the study association of Fontys Engineering – has especially organized events where the new student gets to participate in a wide range of social activities, making you guys feel more at home.
NOTE: During the International Introduction week all precautions against COVID-19 are taken. The whole event is approved by the local authorities and is constanlty monitored, so do not feel afraid of possible disease.
Here is what we have in store for you:
You are going to get to know the city you are going to live in, meet a whole lot of new people, enjoy the Purple festival and so much more! Make new friends even before you step into school and be one step ahead of the others when it comes to building contacts.
When you step foot in the Netherlands or in Eindhoven for the very first time and you don’t know anyone, your mamas and papas can be of a lot of help! You always have a buddy who can show you around town then. The mamas and papas are the people taking care of your group during intro and they can help you get familiar with the Dutch culture, good food and the ever-so-amazing Dutch weather. So, take journey of excitement and make yourself a part of the Innovum Introduction Week!
Monday – the day to Meat and Jam
We start the day at 11:30. You will be welcomed to engineering department by the chairman of our beloved board and then we will form the groups or the so called ‘families’ for the week. We’ll play some fun games to get to know each other better and then we’ll go get crazy with a game tour around the city, finishing the day with a party at our bar where you can learn more about your future course mates and SV. Innovum.
Tuesday – administration day
On Tuesday we will mainly help you show your documentation to Fontys and take you on a tour around the campus. We will top it off with a night of board games.
Wednesday – Wet wet Wetnesday
On the third day we will have one of our big events. We will take you to a Hawaii themed party, with a lot of cold coctails, fun decoration and even water balloons. We will (hopefully) enjoy the sunshine and play a round of beer pong.
On thursday we will play different types of sports and have a small pub quiz to test your knowledge. In the evening we have prepared a Pub Crawl for you to introduce you to the night life in Eindhoven.
On Friday we will have our “Hungover day”. We will find a nice park where we can spend the time playing small games, building some engineer stuffz and relaxing. We will finish the week with a BBQ and campfire evening with marshmellows.
