Orientation Week – Registration First Year students

Dear first-year student,

All current members of ECU’92 wish you a warm welcome to the Utrecht University School of Economics (U.S.E.)!
The upcoming years ECU’92 will be the association that organises all kinds of activities for you as a student. Think of conferences, career days, study trips, parties, football tournaments, barbecues etc.

You will get to know ECU’92 for the first time during the Orientation Week 2021.
Together with U.S.E., we will give you an exciting and fun week full of content-related and social activities. Since the Orientation Week also consists of an evening program, it is wise to arrange a place to stay beforehand.

Besides that, it is very important to always have a proof of identity with you and to take in mind that the Orientation in Utrecht is a mandatory part of your bachelor.

We created a Facebook group for the class of new U.S.E. bachelor students like you! You can join via this link. Joining the group gives you a nice opportunity to see who else is starting the studies and communicate with your fellow students once your studies have started.

Keep updated with the program of the Orientation by following our Instagram accounts:

On this account we will post all the updates of the Orientation Week

On this account we promote all the events, parties and news of our economics Association

The Orientation Week will start on Tuesday the 7th of September and will end on Thursday the 9th of September. The program will run from the morning until late afternoon and will include activities in the city centre of Utrecht and around the University campus where you will study! The program includes a canoe activity on the beautiful canals of Utrecht, a scavenger hunt, a Pubquiz in a local pub of Utrecht, a delicious dinner in a restaurant and so much more!

For the Canoe activity and the restaurant reservations and all the other activities, a subscription is necessary (due to a limited number of spots being available).

On Friday the 10th of September (afternoon) our Orientation programme might continue with the Orientation Weekend, depending on whether the Utrecht University regulations in August will allow it. If the Weekend trip will be possible, we have planned a nice programme for you with a lot of relaxing time, games, water, drinks and delicious food. For a very affordable price, you will have the ultimate opportunity to get to know your fellow students even better than you will during the week in combination with a lot of fun before your studies are about to start.

Around Half August, you will receive an email with updates about the Orientation Weekend and the detailed Orientation program. If you have any questions regarding the Orientation, feel free to send an email to introduction@ecu92.nl.

If you want to become a member of ECU’92, which gives you discount on summaries, books and many other privileges regarding activities we organise, you can become a member already via our website www.ecu92.nl. It is convenient to subscribe already before you start your studies. It would prevent you standing in a queue waiting until you can subscribe. At our website, you can also find information regarding membership benefits and how the registration works.


You can find all details summarised below. The XXX Board of ECU’92 and the Orientation Committee are waiting to see you on the 7th of September for an awesome and fun week!
