Introduction Camp PENGUIN

This is the introduction camp for students of the International Econometrics or Bsc2 Econometrics/Economics programme. For the introduction camp for students who follow the Dutch Econometrie programme, click here.

Welcome to the introductory page for new students of the International Bachelor of Econometrics and Operations Research and Double Bachelor BSc2 Econometrics/Economics. You have just navigated to the most important medium to accommodate you in your transition to university life. At this point, you are most likely unfamiliar with the support an official school association such as FAECTOR can give you during the first few months of your study and later throughout your whole Bachelor and Master.

The first face-to-face contact opportunity is during the Eurekaweek where FAECTOR will be present at activities.

Secondly, we invite you to our awesome introduction weekend PENGUIN. You might be wondering why this eccentric name. It could be because of what your future teacher said to us a few years ago: penguins have a strong team spirit and take tough, long journeys together. This is exactly what defines your Bachelor's, a (mathematical) journey towards econometric knowledge with lots of bumps and obstacles along the road. As you have probably heard, this study can be rather challenging, and therefore, it is important to bond with your classmates. What better way to do this than to spend a whole weekend with them?

So discover the world of FAECTOR by looking through this page and the rest of the website. You will see that FAECTOR provides all econometrics students with social, educational and career-orientated activities.

About the PENGUIN weekend:

The PENGUIN weekend offers you an opportunity to get to know your fellow students in a fun and informal way before the semester starts. We have several activities planned both during the day as in the evenings, thus you will be with the whole group the entire weekend. The goal of the weekend is to make you feel comfortable and at home around your new classmates. There will be a series of games and activities to get to know each other and have some fun! Furthermore, there will be an opportunity to meet older Econometric students, who are more than happy to provide insights into your upcoming studies and student life. All together, we hope to provide you a great weekend before you start your studies.

The PENGUIN weekend 2023 will take place from 30 August until 1 September 2024.
