Orientation Week

Welcome to the orientation page!  Below, you will find all the information concerning the Orientation of 2023!

The orientation is a yearly event which is organized in August for all first-year students of the Radboud University. This is a week that is dedicated entirely to introducing the new students to the campus, the city of Nijmegen and everything that comes with the student’s life. The orientation will take place from Sunday 20st of August until the Sunday 27th of August. When we have a final program, we will post this on our Instagram and this will also be made clearer in the email you get from us. Part of this program will be organized by the Radboud University, however a large group of amazing mentors and the Biology Orientation Committee (BOC) organize a biology orientation that you will remember and in which friendships are made that last for a lifetime!

As a first-year student, chances are that you do not know a lot about the student’s life in Nijmegen. Maybe you have travelled from far to come study in Nijmegen and maybe this will be your first experience living on your own. Maybe you are still commuting. It is also possible that you have already studied in Nijmegen for a few years and have decided to take your study into a new direction. Whatever your background is, the orientation is an awesome week of fun and a perfect way to start your study with a bang! Not only will you meet other first year students through daily activities, you will also explore the Faculty of Science with fun games and we will try to give you a small hint of the great nightlife in Nijmegen through a pub crawl. During the orientation, the board of BeeVee will also help with ordering the first of your books and study materials in the web shop that you will need for your study.

When you do decide to participate in the orientation of biology, you will be assigned to a group of in between 10 and 15 first year students. There are 10 groups, each with their own name (and of course their own yell with which they make their presence known!). Do not be scared, you will have all the fun in the world with your orientation group and with other groups as well! The three peer mentors will see to this. The peer mentors are biology students that chosen to devote their time to share their experiences in the study association BeeVee and city of Nijmegen with you. These sweet and awesome people will lead your orientation group and they will mind the group’s wellness and oversee that everyone has a good time! Without the dedication and enthusiasm of these peer mentors a major part of the activities that you will participate in could not have been made possible.

If you have any further questions concerning the orientation, do not hesitate to fill out the contact form on the BOC-page.

Hopefully, we will see you during the orientation!
