For students. From 19 till 22 august The university in cooperation with Hoge School Zuyd organizes the Inkom. This is a 4 days during period of fun, party, making friends and of course, getting acquated to the city you are about to study. Whether planning to study for 4 years or only abroad for a year, as exchange student, this Inkom should not be missed. The organistion, Werkgroep Inkom, has each year a great program of activities for during the day and each evening a big fraternity organises a great party at the MECC hall. There you buy tickets for drinks and dance to live bands. Fraternities are making sure they come with the best dutch live act, so dancing and jumping garantuued. During the day all the fraternities have open house, you can partake in their funny activities, or just watch, drink beer as well as the Werkgroep invites you to be there at their activities, there is f.e. a sports day, a cultural evening – with a visit to a theater etc. When you take part in the Inkom, you ll be automatically put into a group with some 15 other students – international as well as dutch
mixed – and so you are never alone. The group is let by 2 “mentoren” who are often a member of one of the fraternities. And you get a little pas pour tout, with coupons for the many pubs who present themselves as well during these days. Many pubs play cool music and have crazy actions, such as happy hours or 10 beer for 5 euro etc. As I was a student I had a super time during my Inkom, unforgettable…Have fun!
