Maastricht was the place to be on 24 March—the annual SCOPE Alumni Day. It was an event in which former SCOPE members had the opportunity to reconnect with one another and enjoy a few hours indulging in happy memories of their time at SCOPE.
Because SCOPE recently merged—unifying the former associations FOCUS, 3MA, Economics and SCOPE Maastricht—the aim of this years’ Alumni Day was to keep up the spirit of the former associations and to let the alumni compete against each other in small teams, which were formed according to the previous associations to which they used to belong. The goal was to determine which former association was ‘best’—the most intelligent and the strongest—and of course to have fun at the same time.
Alumni Hunt – Journey through Maastricht
The day started with coffee and cake and interesting conversations within the walls of the Filmhuis Lumière. Following this, teams were divided, and the alumni began an “Alumni Hunt” journey through Maastricht. As they were walking through the city, they had the opportunity to visit the most beautiful places again and think back on old times, but there was also a competitive element which consisted of answering fun questions and solving complex tasks.
Afterwards, everybody gathered for dinner to share their impressions of the day, and the winner of the competitive Alumni Hunt was announced. Finally, the day ended in the Preuverij, the home-like bar of SCOPE where alumni, together with the organising team and the current board, danced and celebrated the success of the day until the sun came up again.
Hope to see you next year
In summary, everybody enjoyed the day and the Alumni team is already looking forward to seeing many alumni again next year at the Alumni Day 2019!
