The first year committee of BeeVee (FYC) is a committee consisting of just freshman students and is guided by three seniors. FYC is trying to involve the freshman biologists in the study association BeeVee. This way we hope to get them excited about and involved in BeeVee, and get them to come to the activities.
The first year committee organizes several fun activities throughout the year, like a cantus and a Diner Rouler. We try to organize great activities like those and other about once every month. The members of FYC are guided by three seniors. This year, these are Jasmijn Miltenburg, Suzanne Dekkers and Sven Bennis. These supervisors make sure all the activities will go smooth and will point them to practical things. There is the possibility to organize activities together with other committees.
The selection for FYC members happens soon after the start of the college year. To reach as many freshman as possible, we try to get one person from every introduction group. When there is no interest from anyone in an introduction group to join FYC however, that spot will be filled in by more people from an introduction group who do have interest in joining FYC. It is important that the freshman joining FYC are motivated and willing to work together to make these many great activities work!
