In 2005, we were founded from the introduction committee that organizes the annual introduction camp for the new first-year students and entrants. Our association stands for a balance between classes and extracurricular activities. We have a daily board and several committees that are committed to organizing lectures, study-related excursions, drink evenings, the annual prom and legendary themed parties, including the infamous Blanco party. We aim to bring people from the different programs in our institute together to create a sense of community. Of course, new members are always welcome!
