TL;DR: subscribe as intro parent at rex.gewis.nl before 12th of july. Make sure you are available 15th, 17th -21st of August.
As you all know, quartile four has almost ended, which means for us that the planning for the introduction week is in full gear. It will be a very different kind of Intro compared to previous years, but we still need enthusiastic Intro-parents. As an Intro-parent, it will be your task to show the new students what the student life at the TU/e looks like. If you would like to become one, together with a partner of your choice, you will be appointed around ten new students as your “kiddo’s”. You will accompany them during the whole week, which will consist of three online and two offline days. You will be responsible for your group of intro-kids on both the online as well as on the offline days. It will be your goal to create a nice group bond so that every one of them will enjoy the week as much as possible!
If you are interested in becoming a parent, please pay attention to the following few points: you have to be available the 15th of August for the “introbegeleiders dag”, where the CIC will give you further information on your schedule and duties as a parent. Attendance is completely mandatory. This means, if you are not present the 15th, you cannot become an intro parent. Furthermore, you obviously have to be available during the introduction week itself, which is from the 17th to the 21st of August. On Monday, Tuesday and Thursday you have to be present online for the online program, while on Wednesday and Friday you will need to be present in person on the campus for the offline activities. Finally, you will be in charge of your group and together with your partner you should ensure that your group members participate in all the activities.
If you are as enthusiastic as we are and want to subscribe as a parent immediately, you should go and find a partner and go subscribe at https://rex.gewis.nl! The subscription closes at the 12th of July 23:59h. If there are too many applications, there will be a draw. You will hear the result of that draw at least before the end of July, hopefully sooner. We hope to see you all during the introduction week, whether it is online or in person!
Lots of love, Intro20 committee
