Organisation: Freshmen Committee

Dear Penguin and future fellow Econometrics student,

You have just made one of the best decisions ever: the city of Rotterdam awaits you for the next exciting chapter of your life! Please let me introduce to you FAECTOR’s fantastic Freshmen Committee (FC). We are a team consisting of both Dutch and international students, all studying International Bachelor Econometrics & Operations Research or BSc2 Econometrics/Economics.

This year, we have the honour of introducing you to Rotterdam, FAECTOR, student life, Econometrics and much more during the awesome PENGUIN Weekend. There will be an interesting and diverse programme to give you the chance to make new friends and discover the city of Rotterdam. Last year, we organised several events for our fellow Econometrics students, such as a Pub Crawl along Rotterdam’s finest pubs and bars, a Casino Night, Laser Tag and a Musical Night, displaying the musical talents of FAECTOR members. I can tell you that organising these activities was at least as much fun as participating in them!

Next year, it can be your turn to organise these kinds of enjoyable events! As a member of the FC, you get the chance to get to know your fellow freshmen better and on top of that, you will immediately meet many of the older FAECTOR members. Are you ready to accept the challenge? If you would like to be part of the next FC, keep your eyes and ears open! The application process will start right at the beginning of the academic year.

Should you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us. After all, we are here to smoothen your transition into this whole new environment.

Looking forward to seeing you around, perhaps already at PENGUIN Weekend?

On behalf of the Freshmen Committee,

Christiaan van den Berg
Chairman Freshmen Committee 2016/2017
