The Kick-In is your first contact with the student life in Enschede. During this introduction week you get to know your fellow students, the university and the city Enschede. This happens through a wide range of activities and there will also be time to enjoy a nice beer.
How does it work?
On the first day of the Kick-In you get divided into do-groups of 9 to 10 persons. Together with the people in your do-group you will experience the Kick-In. You will get to know each other pretty fast and great friendships grow from them! Your do-group will be guided by two (or more) students and they will familiarize you with the student life.
It is very important that you are participating in the Kick-In from the beginning, because everyone is still new then. It is the easiest to get to know new people that way. Do not panic when you did miss the first day, on www.kick-in.nl you can find all information and is explained how you can still join.
Besides the general programme there are also three days reserved for the Educational Kick-In. During the Educational Kick-In we have our own programme organised by S.G. Daedalus with a lot of fun activities, only for first year ID students! You will get to know a lot of the other first years students and some practical things are arranged here. For example where you can find the lecturers and receive your books and drawing materials. A lot of study associations go on first years camp during the Educational Kick-In. However, we organise this camp a bit later, during the weekend from 2 to 4 October. Keep this date free in your calendar!
When is it?
This year the Kick-In will take place from 22 to 30 August 2018. (The Educational Kick-In is on 28, 29 and 30 August)
