You might get a little nervous already, a new school, new classmates, maybe even a new room! But don’t worry, we are here to help! To reduce the stress a little you will find some information here that might be helpful when packing for the InterSib, orientating in Breda and making sure you will have a great start of the experience we call; college.
The InterSib consists of four fun days, we will start at our fantastic location in Oosterhout on Tuesday afternoon. This is where you will need to say “goodbye parents! I am off to my awesome introduction now!” of course there will be a kiss and ride parking spot for those of you that will be dropped by car.
When it comes to packing there are some important things to keep in mind;
You are allowed to bring one weekend-bag (no suitcases) labeled with your name and telephone number
You will need to bring your own sleeping equipment in one big bag (can be a thick bin bag) labeled with your name and telephone number, which includes:
Thick air bed + cover
A sleeping bag and a pillow (although heating is available in the tents, keep in mind that it can be cold!)
There is a swimming pool on the premises we will be staying at so a bathing-suit might be nice! Bring a towel as well 😉
On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night we will sleep at fantastic location in Oosterhout, near Breda. On Friday, we will end the InterSib here too. You parents can you pick you up from this location.
