INKOM 2017: Legends of Tomorrow
INKOM 2017 will be held this year from Monday 21 August to Friday 25 August. During INKOM, new students can participate in various activities, such as workshops, a festival and workouts at the University Sports Centre (USC). On Tuesday and Friday, the programme will end with a party at the MECC, including performances by Lucas & Steve, Justin Mylo and the Bassjackers.
On Monday, students will have the opportunity to explore the city. An information fair will be held in the afternoon, followed by a dinner for students and their mentors. That evening, INKOM will be officially opened with performances by DJ Ludocris, the Shakin' DJs, the Daredevils and Freddy Moreira.
On Tuesday, students will receive an introduction to academic life. Various workshops will be organised and Joseph Oubelkas will hold a lecture on how to deal with stress and difficulties. During the festival, student organisations and student associations will present themselves to students while they enjoy music and drinks. As per tradition, a pub crawl will be organised on Tuesday in addition to the MECC Tuesday Party, which will be headlined this year by Lucas & Steve.
Wednesday will start with a sports activity at the University Sports Centre. Students can relax during a picnic and then participate in the activities organised by the student associations, organisations and societies. Several of Maastricht's cultural institutions will present themselves during the CultiFest, which will be held this year at the Bonnefantenmuseum.
Thursday will start with an afternoon sports event, followed by a barbecue at Onze Lieve Vrouwewal and a party with a cantus at the MECC (for students aged 18 and older). A film night has been organised for students under the age of 18.
Friday is the last day of INKOM 2017. As on Wednesday, the students can join a workout at the University Sports Centre in the morning and then lounge the day away at Fun Valley in the afternoon. A dinner and several career workshops will be organised for master's students and in the evening, the stand-up comedy act Stranger Things Have Happened will perform. INKOM 2017: Legends of Tomorrow will end with a big party at the MECC.
INKOM is Maastricht University's introduction week. During this week, incoming students will get to know the city of Maastricht and familiarise themselves with student life. Several traditional events will be organised, such as CultiFest (where Maastricht's cultural institutions present themselves to new students) and two MECC parties. The theme of INKOM 2017 is Legends of Tomorrow and it will be held from 21 August to 25 August.
