What is an FYC?

If you join a First Year Committee, you can get a taste of what it means to be an active GEWIS member! 
Together with your fellow FYC members, you can make your own identity within GEWIS by creating your own logo and getting your custom clothing. 
To get some inspiration; here are some logo's designed by previous FYCs! 


You will also get the opportunity to organize some very fun activities for GEWIS and you can even be a part of workgroups with other first year committee members which whom you will be organizing parties, parent days or even cantusses!  


Furthermore, each semester a scoring competition is held to see which first year committee is the very best of them all.  
Collect points with your committee by passing courses, attending activities and much more!

How first year committees are formed:

On the 20th of September, there is an information lunch  where you will get some more info about FYCs and previous FYC members will tell you a bit about their experiences. 
You can sign up for this lunch meeting here!

Later on in the quartile a second meeting, the formation meeting, will be held to form the first year committees. Not to worry though, it's also possible to join an FYC later in the year!
