Are you a first-year TiSEM student? Then you automatically participate in the PASS program, together with your work group. PASS is a module and part of one of the courses in your first year. The exact course it is combined with is different for every bachelor. For more information about PASS you can take a look at the syllabus of the course, you can find this on CANVAS.
The role of MAK
PASS is divided into a formal and informal part. The formal part is organized by the PASS team of the university. A class meeting is an example of an aspect of PASS that is part of the formal part.
The informal part of PASS is where MAK comes in. The specific layout of the PASS program depends on your bachelor, but most of the programs require your PASS mentors to organize at least one informal activity with your mentor group in your first year. MAK organizes a few informal activities which you can attend with your mentorgroup! This is an easy way for mentors to organize the activity, MAK does all the thinking and planning so that you and your group only have to show up and have fun.
On top of that, MAK also organizes a Development Day yearly. This is a more formal event, meant to stimulate first-year students to develop themselves. We've had quite a few editions, with inspiring speakers like Tim Hofman, Rico Verhoeven, Sharon Hilgers (CEO of MyJewellery) and many more! It is the perfect event to low-key develop yourself.
