Introductory drinks BA Literary Studies

Location: the bar of Parnassos, Kruisstraat 201


Wednesday 7 & Thursday 8 September the Introduction activities are continued by Euphorion. Details will be announced. On 15 September, there will be introductory drinks with all BA students and teachers of Literary Studies.


Euphorion is the study association of the bachelor of Literary Studies at Utrecht University. A study association is an organisation by and for students of the same bachelor to come together and do anything related to their programme, and other fun activities; borrels, movie nights, book clubs, lectures, and a study trip. Euphorion also organises part of the bachelor introduction!

On Wednesday 7 and Thursday 8 September, Euphorion is taking over the introduction from the teachers. On both days we will start around 13.00. Activities will depend on the weather, but think about activities like: a scavenger hunt, a picnic, or a boat trip. Wednesday we end the day with dinner at a restaurant (paid by Euphorion). On Thursday 15 September, finally, there will be a community borrel. This borrel is the perfect opportunity to get to know people from the whole bachelor program while having a drink of your choice.

Because the introduction program on Wednesday and Thursday depends on the weather, please join the following WhatsApp group!: https://chat.whatsapp.com/EuTzcthDeF6L20ZnzoBdXj
Not only will this group chat be used to communicate the introduction plans, but this group chat also gives you the opportunity to get to know your fellow first years, or ask the Euphorion board any questions you might have.This will also become the general group chat, so even if you are not able to join the introduction days, make sure to join this WhatsApp group!

While the introduction is available to all first-year students for the bachelor Literatuurwetenschap / Literary Studies, other Euphorion activities are for Euphorion members.
