FAECTOR - November

The first exams are over and we are ready for the second block!

The first block of the academic year is already over. We had two hectic months, but time flew by really fast! We enjoyed various social activities, like the Pool Tournament and the Interfaculty Beer Tasting. Besides the social activities, there were also two career events, being the Inhouse Day at Pointlogic and the Laser Tag with Capgemini.

A couple of great activities will take place in the upcoming month. First of all, the Econometric Career Days (ECD) will take place from 15 till 23 November. This event is the biggest on-campus career event for econometrics students in the Netherlands. Companies will visit our campus and organise several cases, presentations and workshops. There will also be a Port Day on 20 November. Moreover, some informal activities such as a barista workshop and a finance dinner will be organised by the companies. Go to the ECD website to sign up!

The Multicultural Trip will take place on 4 November. This event is organized exclusively for first year students following the International Econometrics or the BSc2 programme. The trip will go to The Hague and it’s the perfect opportunity to relax and have fun after the stressful first exam week. Don’t wait any longer and sign up here!

The Beer Cantus will take place on the 9th of November. Everyone will gather in their lederhosen and dirndls for an amazing night! The ticket price is €10 which includes four beers. If you dress up, you will even get an extra beer! There will also be a live band that will play all of your favourite tunes.

Finally, the subscriptions for our annual Ski Trip opened. This year, we will travel to Sauze d’Oulx in Italy. With over 400 km of slopes, you can really show off your skiing or snowboarding skills! The trip will take place from 18 till 22 January 2018. For now, all spots are already taken, but don’t hesitate and put yourself on the waiting list here!

We wish you lots of luck with the new courses in the second block! We hope to see you at our events and be sure to have a drink with us at the After Exam Drink on 2 November.
