How exciting that you want to get involved in the most fun event of the year, the introduction 2023! For a summary, here is the PowerPoint from the information meeting https://fsektionen.se/dokument/1143.
Below, we've briefly summarized what the different voluntary positrons entail. What we think is important and what we expect from our introduction volunteers. If you’re unsure of anything just let us know, we’re happy to answer any questions!
When applying for a volunteer position, it is important to understand that you will be asked to put in the time it takes. We want you to keep that in mind and be willing and eager to help out. The idea, of course, is not for everyone to be at everything, things can happen and everyone needs to rest, but think twice before you apply.
What do we expect from you?
The same as a group mentor but for an international group of mentees, You will speak English with your group of mentors, both mentors and mentees. It is particularly important to introduce the international mentees to LTH, Lund and Sweden and to make them feel part of the F-section. The introduction starts about a week earlier for international students
-In the spring there are a couple of education sessions and some fun events. We also encourage you to Hang out with your group on your own so that you get to know each other and create a great group from the start.
This year we will (probably) have the following missions:
FLYING: All sections will go to Helsingborg with home-made flying vehicles and compete to get as close to Denmark as possible (one day we will get all the way there, we just know it).
The introduction movie: The mission is to record a theme-accurate short movie which is then played for everyone on the last day of the introduction, before the Nollegasque. An introductionmovie mentor should have some movie making experience.
Nollesexet: the mission group gets to practice holding their very first sitting for the other mentees. The theme, the food, the drinks, everything is up to the mentees!
Revyn: The assignment is to create a themed Revy, with rewritten songs. It is performed on the last day of the introduction, before nollegasquen.
Hopefully we will have these assignments.
Regattan: Each mission group builds a boat in a theme-like style and competes against the other guilds on the lake, the goal being to sink the other guilds' boats.
Cheer: The group will create a cheer routine of about 3 minutes and then compete against the other guilds for the best routine during the Introduction weekend. On topp of that cheer usually gets to participate in some other events and spread their joy! Their mission is to know as many guild chants as possible and shout them across campus.
Nollympics: the group gets to plan and organize an event with fun competitions for the other mentees. Here, only creativity limits what you can come up with.
The Balloon trebuchet: The mission team constructs a Balloon trebuchet, aka a catapult for water balloons. Guilds then compete in accuracy with their Balloon trebuchet, using the guilds's own Fös as the target…
Boxcar: The mission is to build the finest, fastest, most stylish boxcar, and then show just how incredibly fast it is by competing on a track against the other guilds' cars.
Showdown: In the showdown mission, you'll get the chance to both stand on stage and craft whatever it takes to get the audience attention! Here, all guilds compete against each other in a show with no lines, full of background music and effects, and lots of over-the-top acting. Lots of laughs and fun await, may the best section win! And as a bounis the show can't be more than 3.14 min long... * The Överfös Obstacle Course: each gouilds's mission team gets to build their own obstacle, which will then be assembled into an obstacle course for all the gouilds Överfös. On the day of the competition, you should of course be there to cheer on and support your Fös!
Waderloo: In the Waderloo mission, each guild builds its own monument in the theme of the introduction. Here, creativity is allowed to flow to create a real masterpiece, but the most important thing is that the monument is stable and durable as the last guild with standing monument is the winner! Be sure to protect the guilds monument and destroy the others, but don't be afraid to get a little wet along the way
In previous years, the timetable for completing the assignments has looked something like this:
Even after the mission is complete try to make sure the group hang out.
What do you do?
What are the Extrafös and what do they mean?
-Webbfös: The other new extra fös is Webbfös. As a Webbfös, you help the föset with everything that has to do with the fappen and the website. You work both in the spring to change the design/features of the fapp, but also during the Introduction if things go wrong with the fapp or the web. We have set a requirement that you are/have been spider- or superman.
To summarize, the following extrafös are needed at the following times:
Others are not as tied to a specific time. When you want to plan is up to you. However, the dates of the events are fixed.
What do you do as an extra?
If you have any questions, just send us an email and we'll be happy to answer!
Hugs Föset 2023!
