As association, S.A. Astatine organizes a very large diversity of activities, ranging from workshops and excursions to drinks and sports. Although we have multiple, varying activities every week, there are also a couple of standard activities that we have every year or two years.
Europe Trip (BuCom)
The BuCom is an our annual Europe trip, where we go with a group of 50 students to a destination somewhere in Europe. During the trip, the group visits several companies or universities, as well as enjoying the local culture. It is the highlight of the year, and a ton of fun! The price of the trip is kept low with the help of research groups and companies, and it enables all people to join the trip. If you want to know more about our Europe trip, visit their own website here.
Study Trip (SSA)
The SSA (Stichting Studiereis Astatine) is a big trip that takes place once every two years. The trip is around 3 weeks long, where we visit a destination outside Europe. During the trip, we have numerous excursions to companies and universities, but there is always time to enjoy some sightseeing too. To fund this big event, the whole group, existing out of 24 students, starts a year in advance by doing case work for companies and research groups.
The SSA has their own website, where they explain much more about what they do and how. Visit it here.
The Kick-In is the University wide introduction week for the new first year students. A big part of this week is organized by the KIC (The Kick-In Committee) for the whole university, but 3 days are organized by the study associations themselves. In Astatine, the KITCAT (Kick-In Task Committee Advanced Technology), takes care of this by organising 3 awesome days in where they will get to know the study and study association.
