Introduction Camp

The introduction camp is the first opportunity organised by MESA to socialise with fellow students and have a drink together. The weekend is packed with all kinds of activities where you’ll be playing fun games, eat delicious barbecue, and be part of a theme party. If you want more information or when you already have made up your mind, head over here.

Active membership and Committees

MESA is driven by a couple of committees, that all have their own responsibilities. Being a part of a committee means that you are able to learn more about your interests, get to know other students better and make friends, and offers the opportunity to develop yourself professionally. As for now, MESA consists out of six committees:

THE EVENT COMMITTEE
This committee organises all party activities, such as the monthly drinks and the end of the year gala. They make sure MESA always has something fun to do.

THE TRAVEL COMMITTEE
This committee is in charge of organising a big trip abroad for MESA members during the springtime. We are looking forward to hopefully a new trip this year!

THE MEET THE MAKERS COMMITTEE
They organise the series called Meet The Makers, in which experts from different media fields share their personal experiences and offer valuable career advice. They also take care of other study-related tasks such as gathering summaries and organising study groups.

THE MEDIA COMMITTEE
Members of this committee create audiovisual content which can be used for our social media accounts and the website. They also take care of event promotion and furthermore create our public image.

THE INTRO COMMITTEE
Members of this committee organise the introduction camp in September for all first-year students and have the opportunity to be the first to show new students what MESA is all about! Right now, they are working very hard to make the intro camp 2021 for all prospective media students.

THE LUSTRUM COMMITTEE (ACTIVE LAST YEAR)
This year, we have celebrated our first Lustrum. The Lustrum committee made sure that we all were able to have an amazing first Lustrum. Our first Lustrum themed “Glitch” was a big success.

Signing up for these committees will become possible at the beginning of next year. If you want to learn more about our current active members, you can head over here. On this page you can also contact specific committees, if you already have questions about what they do. If you have more general questions about for example becoming an active member, you can contact our board.
