##> PARTY THEMES <##
On facebook the first 2 party themes have already been disclosed:
Arrival day (23rd) – Welcome to the Netherlands! Dress up as Dutch as you can and join the party at the University’s very own student-run pub, de Vestingbar!
Day one (24th) – P.C.S.A. Incognito Masquerade ball. 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.
#> TIP: Dress up for the plenaries that day, as after the plenaries there will be no time anymore to change before the opening ceremony.
Check the official facebook participants group to find out what the other themes are!
##> GYM <##
We have received some questions when the gym will be opened. The gym will be opened from Tuesday 23rd 23:59 onwards. There will an option to store your luggage earlier and we will make certain to keep you entertained if you arrive earlier 🙂
##> VEGA FRIDAY <##
In order to support the environment and to lessen our footprint on the planet, Friday 26th will be a meat-free Friday! We hope you like veggies because this day you won’t be able to run from them! 😉
##> EXTRA ACTIVITIES <##
After a long day of discussion, would you really just like to just dance it off? We got a salsa workshop for you! One of Enschede’s very own dance associations will quickly teach you how to be a true salsa master on the dance floor Would you rather test your luck? Join the bingo activity instead and see if you are lucky enough to win some cool prizes! The bingo is on Tuesday (23rd), the salsa is on Thursday (25th), both are free, but both have limited places and you can sign up using the form above!
Stay tuned for more activities!
We would like to ask you once again to fill in our questionnaire if you have not already done so. It has some important additional information about topics such as arrival and departure time, special needs and technology matters.
