First and foremost: welcome to the new academic year! Hopefully everyone survived their summer and resits good & well, so we can start the new school year in high spirits.
The new academic year of course starts off with a welcome week, during which we make sure that new students can get to know the city and their colleagues. The first years and the other students will also get plenty of opportunity to socialize and everyone will have enough time to pick up their books at the course service.
- Getting to know the city is done best during the city game on Tuesday evening. It’s free and you can register here.
- Later that week, on Thursday, our cocktail party will take place. During this, you’ll discover that the permanency is more than just the location of the course service. This place can be good fun!
- Also worth mentioning: books, courses and other stuff! The course service will be open many hours during the first week of term, but beware: there will possibly be some queues if everyone comes at once.
And that wraps up week 1. Of course, we will be available for all your questions, however big or small they seem to you. Some random tips & tricks:
- Go to your classes/meetings on time, so you’ll still be there in due time if you get lost.
- 91 Is the basement of a building (nobody knows why)
- Saving money is best done through preparing your own food and by eating on food sales of student unions instead of buying a sandwich every day!
And, zum Schluss, a look into the future:
For the first years we organize a welcome weekend after week 2. Register here!
* This also means that parts of the website will be under construction in the coming month to ensure all information is up to date again.

IT’S THE LAST WEEK
On Monday, it’s time for the last General Meeting of the year, where every Eoos-student or -sympathizer will be welcome.
Wednesday is the day we clean out stock at our last food sale. Expect grilled cheese sandwiches, pasta and who knows what else 😉
Yup, you’re seeing this right; the reality check is here. Tonight marks the beginning of your penultimate ‘normal’ Leuven-week.
To still provide your lives with joyful activities, Eoos is organizing a few events these last weeks, including:
How entrepreneurial is your faculty? How are entrepreneurs perceived at the KU Leuven? Do you have your own entrepreneurial ideas? Or do you prefer stability and certainty? Maxime and Juliaan, two Master students of Organizational Psychology, are researching the difference in entrepreneurial culture and intention at the different faculties of the KU Leuven in collaboration with the KU Leuven and Lcie (Leuven Community for Innovation Driven Entrepreneurship). All students are important, both entrepreneurial and less entrepreneurial! Go to “www.facebook.com/lesurvey”, watch their fun video and fill in their short (10 min) survey so that they can map entrepreneurship at your faculty! By filling in the survey, you have a chance for winning a ticket for Couleur Café (6 available)!
Hereby an overview of everything Eoos has to offer this week.
- On Tuesday, Eoos & TSAL are organizing a snack exchange: Belgian and Taiwanese snacks, need I say more? More info & the link to register can be found here.
- Wednesday brings our last afternoon @ fak. Caution: this is the last week fak will be open, so don’t come crying if you decide to be a good student this week and regret it the next 😉
- On Thursday, Eoos organizes her penultimate food sale of the academic year. We will be at the ready with spring rolls and homemade tabbouleh for all of your hungry bellies in between classes.
This week’s highlight is the Asian Pop Party. But of course, that isn’t all you can do this week.
