Chapter Fair

🐋 Hello chapter! 🐋

**On the 15th of april it is time for the Chapter fair! **

The fair will be ongoing between 12 and 15 (and afterwards there might be some activities with QN & DESC) with committee presentations around 12:30.

During the fair you will be able to learn more about the different committees of the chapter, as well as what the different volunteers do within the chapter. The fair will be held in the 𝛿-hallen, a meeting place that we’ve constructed in Gather.town, a web-based 2D pixel-art game where you can walk around and speak to others using proximity voice-chat and video 📷. (Video is optional!)

During the fair there will be a scavenger hunt for the brand new Chapter fair-patch where you can compete by gathering points.

There will also be a collection of games to try, and rumors has it that DESC and QN will arrange something fun during the event 🎮

The schedule for the day looks like the following: 12-15: The fair will be ongoing: here you can explore our Committees booths. 12.30: Committees present themselves. 15-??: The Committee booths close, but the fair will be open for more activities and some fun events.

Have a good time and see you at the fair!

The aim of the mentor program is to give you as a student inspiration for your future career. Your mentor will be a former student, i.e. an alumnus/alumna of KTH, with experiences and personal knowledge of how life after graduation can be. He/she may have a different educational background. Mentoring is about asking questions, listening, reflecting and discovering new perspectives. As a mentee in the program, you are expected to meet up with your mentor four times, of which two meetings are together with the other participants. The mentors and mentees will plan the other two meetings on their own. Please contact [email protected] should you have any questions.

You get your money back for the food by going to cashflow and registering it as an expense.
