Dear future econometrician,
The PENGUIN weekend is an introduction for students starting the Econometrics or Econometrics/Economics study in September 2021.
It offers you an opportunity to get to know the city of Rotterdam and your fellow students in a fun and informal way, before the semester starts. We have several activities planned both during the day as well as in the evenings, thus you will be with the 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 both get to know each other and the city. Furthermore, there will be an opportunity to meet older Econometric students, who are more than happy to provide insights into your upcoming studies and life in Rotterdam. All together we hope to provide you a fun weekend before you start your studies.
As you have probably heard Econometrics can sometimes be a bit 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, participating in fun team bonding activities?
This years weekend will take place in Rotterdam, from 27th of August until the 29th of August and will cost 30 euros. We will start Friday with brunch and some getting to know eachother activities. Afterwards, you'll get to go discover Rotterdam with your fellow students and new friends, before we meet up again for a nice dinner in the evening. Saturday will be filled with a surprise afternoon activity, whereas on Sunday we'll enjoy a nice, laid back day, where you can relax and decide how to spend your time with the rest of your group. All in all, a great way to get to know life in Rotterdam, and your fellow students. Subscribe now!
We hope to see you in Rotterdam!
