SPRING AGORA ENSCHEDE 2017

DARE TO ACT

“I am hopeful about the future because of you gathering together at the Spring Agora Enschede. For you are the healthiest, best educated, most travelled, idealistic but not ideological generation. If you can organise yourself and put your energy into action, our common European future is bright. Dare to act!”

Frans Timmermans, European Commission, First Vice-President

Party themes of the Agora!

Tuesday 23rd of May
Welcome to the Netherlands

Hello everyone and welcome to the Netherlands! On your arrival day we’d like to introduce you to the Netherlands. Maybe you’ve already heard of it, but we have beautiful tulips, delicious stroopwafels (those cookies), wooden shoes (klompen), windmills and of course BEER! The best beer you can get in the Netherlands is Grolsch, which is produced in Enschede. Luckily, you’ve come to the right place to taste it. So dress up as Dutch as you can and join the party at the University’s very own pub, de Vestingbar!

Wednesday 24th of May
P.C.S.A. Incognito Masquerade ball

Have you ever tried to be incognito? Some gents at AEGEE-Enschede are incognito all the time, ever since they joined the fraternity P.C.S.A Incognito. For most of us, this is a quite difficult to accomplish, due to them only inviting a few to join them each year. However, tonight we can all be incognito! Ever tried to be someone else? Do you want to pull a prank on someone without them knowing who you are? After the opening ceremony at the beautiful Wilminktheater, we’ll head up to the fancy club ‘t Bölke. Dress up elegant and start this Agora incognito.

Thursday 25th of May
Beach party

The 25th of May is Ascension Day! Maybe it’s a little bit odd to throw a beach party on this day, but for us Dutchies it isn’t that weird! On Ascension Day a lot of people go out of bed at 3 AM to sing and dance barefoot in a field of grass. This is called ‘dauwtrappen’. After dauwtrappen, to get warm again, there are many bonfires at the beach. So now you know where our theme comes in. So dress up in your favorite beach outfit and come to club Merlijn for a great beach party! However, just a bikini or a Speedo can be a little bit too cold 😉

Friday 26th of May
30 shades of AEGEE-Enschede

This year AEGEE-Enschede has its sixth lustrum, which means we are celebrating our 30th birthday. To celebrate this memorable year we are bringing sexy back with the theme ‘30 shades of AEGEE-Enschede’. Unleash your inner Ana or Christian and get wild! This sexy party is in de Pakkerij, when you are there, don’t forget to visit our own pub Asterion, which is on the ground floor!

Saturday 27th of May
European Night

It’s the night we all know; the European Night! At this end of the Agora Enschede, we’d like to bring everyone just a little closer then we already are. Everyone brings some food and drinks from their home country so we all can enjoy it. This is your last chance to party in Enschede, so don’t miss it! There will be an afterpary in the Vestingbar.
