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.
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
From 9:30 you have to go to a meeting point, building R5, ground floor, where you’ll start the introduction programme. You will be welcomed to engineering department by one of our beloved teachers 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 jam evening where you can learn more about your future course mates and SV. Innovum.
Tuesday – the active day
After a nice breakfast we will spend the day in crazy and exciting action. We will have activities that will make you move all three dimensions at once. No one is getting out bored. At the evening we will join our Dutch friends at carnaval evening at the campsite.
On the third day we’ll eat breakfast and then we’ll start touring around the city to do some activities that are organized by Purple for us. Finishing off the day on Stratumseind where we will have dinner and have some more fun.
On the fourth day we’ll have breakfast and we’ll go to the Purple Festival on which we’ll see some of the great music artists from around the Netherlands and experience the Dutch way to enjoy a Festival.
We’ll have breakfast with the Dutch part of Engineering and play some games on a huge field and we will continue on to having a barbecue in our bar.
