The Kick-Off Week is a period in which many activities are organized for new students (like you!). Most of these activities are organized in the first week of the academic year; that’s why it’s called the Kick-Off week. The organized events allow you to get to know the university, your study, and other students. We really recommend you attend them! Some of the activities in the Kick-Off Week are organized by the Introcee (that’s us, we are all CS or AI students), and others by the university.
On this page you can find more information about the activities that we organize during the first week of your AI/CS program. The main aim of our activities is that you get to know new people, so that you can make new friends (yay). Another goal is that you get to know the campus a bit, which is nice since you will feel less like you are in first grade all over again. We hope to see you in September!
The IntroCee is organizing a Barbecue and social on the 7th of September for all first-year AI & CS students so that you can eat the stress of your first lectures away. The sign-up cost for this amazing meal will only be €2,-.
The event will be held on the field in front of the Bernoulliborg, where you will get to enjoy a nice barbecue with your fellow first-year students (meat or vegetarian). Of course, you will also be able to purchase some beer or soda! This is a really good way to socialize with your fellow students!
If you are a higher-year student, you can also sign up for the meal! If we have reached our maximal capacity, priority will go to first-years.
NOTE: the sign up below is for the BBQ, you don't need to sign up for the other events!
NOTE 2.0: The sign-ups will close at 23:59 on Monday, 5th September.
The ActiviTee is organizing a social on the 8th of September! Socials are monthly events where members of the association get together and have a drink, and maybe some dancing. They usually have a theme, and what better theme for the first social of the year other than ‘kick-off’? Besides getting to know your fellow students over some glasses of beer (or soda), you will also get to meet some of the other members of the association.
You don’t need to sign up for this, you just show up at Partycafé de Doos at 21:00 and have fun. And the cherry on top? The first 140 beers are on us!!
The university together with the IntroCee organizes a treasure hunt around Zernike Campus on the 5th of September. The purpose of this is to get to know the campus a bit and learn where the main spots are so you are a little bit less lost when you actually start to go to class. For this event, you will be divided by mentor groups, as your mentor will lead the treasure hunt.
Sadly the deadline for signing up for the BBQ has passed. However, the sign ups are still open for the camp so if you want to join a nice introductory activity, luckily you still can!
