All exchange students get ready for an amazing weekend in Amsterdam, brought to you by ESN VU Amsterdam. We will show you this beautiful city and introduce you to all the crazy, fun and quirky traditions. In this weekend you will meet new people from all around the world and forge new bonds with them. ESN VU Amsterdam has been organizing this Introduction Weekend for years and we know all the amazing and fun spots so that the international, exchange & Erasmus students of VU University Amsterdam start your exchange with a BLAST! During this amazing weekend we will make sure that you have a great time and a great experience in Amsterdam. You can look forward to the following events: 

On Friday

Meet your coach sessions: During these sessions you will meet your introduction group and your introduction coaches. Pizza, chips, wine and beer are included.
Boom Chicago: Next you will go to Boom Chicago where stand-up comedians will, among other things, make fun of the Dutch culture
Coco’s Outback: We will end the night in the Cinema café which will be combined with Coco’s Outback. For the whole semester Coco’s will be the place to be on Wednesday’s.

On Saturday

We have two main activities during the day which the groups will participate in one by one.
Walking Tour: The first main activity is the walking tour. Guides will take you through the city centre to show you the most interesting landmarks and tell you their interesting stories.
The Amsterdam Dungeon: Second main activity is The Amsterdam Dungeon. As the name already gives away, this activity will show you the dark side of Amsterdam. Actors and special effects will make this a special, and sometimes scary, experience.
Undercurrent: At this cool, chilled out location on the other side of the ‘IJ’, we will have dinner. Here we will also play (drinking)games and relax before the real party starts.
Boat Party: When you come to Amsterdam, a party on a boat is just something you can’t miss. Don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime experience! (probably not once in a life time because more boat parties will be organized)

On Sunday

Barbeque Brunch: Because most of you will be hungover the day starts at 13:00 (01:00pm) at il caffe. Here there will be a ‘hangover barbeque’. After the barbeque there will be chilled out games on the grass outside of the restaurant. Ill Caffe is a restaurant which for 90 percent of you will be at walking distance. 

Excited for the drinks, get-together's, parties, and a lots of other activities in which you can get to know people? Get your ticket now
