Upcoming events

Tue 23 May, 12:30 to 20:00

Every year, the ten study associations from the TU/e, united in the FSE, organize a day activity together. Traditionally this is a large-scale drink called the ‘Borrel XL’ in which all the study associations drink together. The drink, that takes place on Tuesday, 23th of May 2017, replaces the Thursday drink as this drink cannot be held due to Ascension later that week. The drink lasts from 16:00 to 20:00 and starting from 16:00 music will be taken care of by our DJ’s Maarten Klijn and Rik Broers. From 18:00 on, our bands Bottoms Up and MAVO will take over. During the whole drink it is possible to obtain food, namely pizza and fries.

Prior to the Borrel XL, the Lounge XL will take place. This will start at 12:30 and here a variety of games can be played in a relaxed atmosphere. With these games, tokens can be earned for the Borrel XL. Apart from that, during the lunch break there will be free lemonade and upon purchase of tokens for the Borrel XL a free hamburger will be given!

Do you like walking through the woods and forgetting all about the klok? Do you hate having to klok in, early in the morning? That's good, because during the Race against De Klok dropping, you'll get to klokklok the time away while walking through a totally mysterious and unknown forest. You'll be dropped directly after the ACCI BBQ, so be sure to enlist & eat your tummy full there as well, so time won't weight as heavily on your liver.

 

We will meet in front of flux at 21:00. You can register in groups of about 6 people, if you didn't manage to find 6 people you can still register, just state the groupname as "-", we will sort all people with "-" into groups on the spot.

It was a day like no other day in May when a thunderstorm hit Sante. Alice was walking on stratumseind when she suddenly saw this thunderstorm and said to hersef: “That is very curious indeed, that a storm exsists within a bar?” Slowly her curiosity got stronger than her fear and she decided to find out more about this storm. When she reached the door she saw that it looked like a rabbithole! She decided to walk through this rabbithole, only to find an awesome teaparty inside this very stormy Sante! Alice felt right at home! How about you? Are you curious enough?

Na zo'n geweldig evenement als de decadente borrel krijgt iedereen honger. Natuurlijk wil je in je nette pak wel fancy kunnen eten. Daarom organiseerd de ACCI het Mac Gala. We zullen na de decadente borrel rond 7 uur voor flux verzamelen om daar met zijn allen naar de prachtige eetgelegenheid te fietsen. De eetgelegenheid ligt op de prachtige locatie midden in het centerum van Eindhoven. Hier kunt u genieten van de beste hamburgers in een straal van een meter en krijgt u hiernaast ook nog wat patat/friet en een niet alcoholisch drankje. Indien u niet zoveel trek heeft, kunt u natuurlijk ook het blije kindermenu bestellen, waarbij u natuurlijk het wel bekende speeltje van de eetgelegenheid krijgt. Van u wordt verwacht om op deze mooie dag uw eigen bord, bestek en eventueel glas zelf mee te nemen.

P.S. Wanneer u niet aanwezig kon zijn bij de decadente borrel, kunt u natuurlijk nog steeds meedoen met het Mac Gala. Het enige wat je dan moet doen, is in je pak om 7 uur voor Flux staan.

P.P.S. Mocht u gedurende het eten zin hebben in een alcoholische versnapering, dan moet u deze zelf meenemen. Wel waarschuwen wij u alvast dat u dit niet moet nuttigen onder het oog van de medewerkers. Eventuele verwijdering van de eetgelegenheid is voor uw eigen risico.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

After such a great event as the "decadente borrel", everyone gets hungry. Of course you want to eat fancy in your nice suit. That's why the ACCI organized the Mac Gala. After the "decadente borrel" we will gather around 7pm for flux to cycle all the way to the beautiful dining area. The dining area is situated in the beautiful location in the center of Eindhoven. Here you can enjoy the best Burgers in a radius of a meter and you will also get some fries and a non alcoholic drink. If you are not very hungry, you can of course also order the happy meal, with of course the well-known toy of the dining area. You are expected to bring your own plate, cutlery and any glass on this beautiful day.

P.S. If you did not attend at the "decadente borrel" you can still attend at the Mac Gala. You just have to show up in your suit in the front of Flux at 7 pm.

Mon 21 Aug (All day) to Fri 25 Aug (All day)

Like every year there will be an introduction week for all the new students that are going to study at the TUE next academic year. In order to guide all these students we are searching for volunteers. The introduction week is a fun week for both new students (kiddo’s) and old students (parents) that are willing to make the best week ever. If you think you’ve have it in you to be a good parent then please subscribe here and become one of the guides.

What is your job as a parent?

When you become a parent you’ll be appointed to a group of new students that are going to study either Electrical Engineering or Automotive next year. This group has a size of +- 8 new students plus you and your partner, the 2 parents. It will be your job, together with your partner, to guide these students through the introduction program. This involves for example;

  • Making sure the students get to the activities
  • Let the students get to know each other
  • Let the students get to know Eindhoven
  • Let the students have a great time
  • And more

How do you become a parent?

You can become a parent by filling in the form on this page. We will register your subscription and contact you later for more information.

Important remarks

  • We’re only looking for Electrical Engineering or Automotive students.
  • If you are a first year student and we have to many parents then you’ll have a lower priority then 2nd, 3rd or master students.
  • We might invite you to ask a few questions about your motivation
  • A parent should be available for the whole week sometimes from very early to very late.
  • It might be smart to subscribe with someone that you already know. This however, is not mandatory.
  • You have to be available from 21 til 25 August and also on the weekend before the intro (19 + 20). Otherwise you can NOT be an intro-parent.
