Activities Committee

The A-com of SA Helix organizes multiple activities every year for all the members of our association. Some activities organised in the last years are lasergamen, pubquiz, cycling dinner, iceskating, foam party, and movie-afternoons. Furthermore, this committee organises a Course Openings Party (COP) at the beginning of every period. Each COP is celebrated in another theme, such as Onesie party, Valentine’s party, Birthday party, etc. At these parties, everyone is welcome! If you have any ideas, you are welcome to share them with us.

Organizing a gala is a task with a lot of responsibilities, but also an incredible experience! The committee usually begins to organize this event in the beginning of the academic year. Different tasks include arranging the perfect location, finding a satisfactory photographer and of course some kind of amazing music act. Sometimes there even is a theme to the gala, which needs special decorations or dress code. These ideas also come from the committee, so creative members are needed for this!

Wellbeing committee

Together with the first years committee these are the brand new committees of 2021, and you can thank them to the pandemic (then at least something good came out of it). The wellbeing committee focuses especially on taking a second to breath and take a break from uni stuff. Together with a great group of girls, initiatives like the self-care bingo and challenging behaviour workshop are brought to life especially for you.

First years committee

The first years committee focuses, you guessed it, on first years. Differently from normal years, camp in 2020 could not happen and intraweek had a signup limit of 50, so only very few students got to meet. Therefore, Helix decided to make a committee especially for those new students in Maastricht to gather and have fun, and prevent missing out on all the fun uni life has to offer.
