About the Freshmen Weekend
Plan your holidays well and attend the Freshmen Weekend!
We want to urge that the Freshmen Weekend is a weekend full with fun activities, aiming to make new friends and that you will in no way be hazed or humiliated in person as is common as an introduction ritual at fraternities/sororities!
During the weekend, we have a wide range of activities organised for you! To give you an idea of what we are going to do, we have made a small selection:
- Crazy 37: Challenges across the city centre of Delft.
- Sports afternoon: Play various sports against other mentor groups.
- Beer Cantus: Sing along to well-known songs while enjoying some beers or soda’s!
- Party with a live band: This year’s band is yet to be announced..
- Committee day: Get to know all the committees and departments of the VSV Leonardo da Vinci while playing minigames!
Study assocation ‘Leonardo da Vinci’
The Society of Aerospace Students ‘Leonardo da Vinci’, founded in 1945, has grown into a mature society. With approximately 2300 members and more than 200 active member who are part of several committees and departments , the Society of Aerospace Students is the largest society of its kind in the Benelux. The association is supervised by a board consisting of seven aerospace students, who have put their studies on hold to fully dedicate themselves to the society.
During the year, the committees and departments organise many excursions, lectures, parties, diners and drinks. The Society of Aerospace Students offers an excellent possibility to her members to get acquainted with the business segment of the Aerospace sector, for example during the study tour or during the annual organized symposium. Besides this, the Society of Aerospace Students has several quality control groups, which aim to improve the quality of the education provided. Also, every year a yearbook is published and four times a year the Leonardo Times appears.
Location: Breda Airport
For the first time, the freshmen weekend will be held at ‘Breda International Airport’. This is a relatively small airport between Roosendaal and Breda in the South of the Netherlands. Our campsite will be right underneath the ‘final approach’ , which will give us some nice views of the landing airplanes. Here you will integrate with your fellow future Aerospace Engineering students, by playing sports, games and having a party!
