The Introduction Committee organises three different events. The first of which is the renowned Clio Introduction Camp, with this year’s theme being “Back to the Future”, at the end of August and right before the start of the academic year, in order for the upcoming freshmen to get to know each other and to be introduced to Clio and its various activities and committees. Afterwards, we will organise the Freshmen Dinner, which is traditionally followed by the Opening Party, to kick off the academic year in style. This party is one of biggest Clio parties of the year and for most freshmen it is the first time they will party together.
Sometime after the Opening Party, the committee will organise a trip to The Hague, where institutions such as the Clingendael Institute of International Relations or the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will be visited in order to gain insight into the practical application of our studies.
In February, we will organise a three-day excursion to either Brussels or Strasbourg for about forty freshmen and sophomores. During this trip we will arrange for the group to visit the European Parliament and various other organisations that work with or within the European Union. And, of course, we will go out and explore the capitals of Europe and their spectacular nightlives!
