Running students, a lot of coffee, energy drinks and paracetamol, rattling computers, working photocopying and cantankerous faces. These are the things one might expect when thinking of the preparations of INKOM 2012 that will take place within two weeks. Nothing of this seems to be true…
Currently, around 20 dedicated students have occupied the Student Service Centre of Maastricht, placed in the Bonnefantenstraat. The Board is ruling from their old confident room, B2.01 and the CP (Central Post) is turning the loft of the building into an inspiring work centre. Walking through the building feels like walking on a beach in St. Tropez. Crowded, but full of relaxing, smiling and joking students who are working without worries. Hakuna Matata!
Lying on every table, needed every day, telling everyone what to do, the so called Job – Folder is almost an holy object. Shopping, printing more than thousands of information plates, informing citizens, creating an expedition, sticking in INKOM bags and making maps. The Job – Folder gives nonstop orders to the CP and just lounging around, doing nothing is taboo.
This week, these superhero’s only work between 9h30 and 18h30, so there is room for some alcohol in the evening. However, next week, they will have to run some harder because from then onwards, the Job – Folder commends them to work in the evening as well. Preparing INKOM 2012 is a 24/7 job and being a sleepy person will not be desired.
WGI, CP, MCP, FCP, Meccie’s, techno’s and PRIO PRIO. INKOM 2012 loves abbreviations. It shows the harmony of the total crew and their unity since they all speak the same INKOM – language. Cooperation is INKOM’s religion and consequently their power to achieve everything.
Only 7 days left before INKOM 2012 will kick off. You will be blown over by the incredible moments and experiences you will have, it will create memories for sure. MECC party, festivals, pub crawls, comedy night a cantus and more. Besides, do not forget to follow INKOM on social media in order to stay tuned! Enjoy the atmosphere of Maastricht as an amazing student – city. And please, do not worry too much about all the people who are organizing these revolutionary days. Veni, Vidi, Vici. We will be fine.

I am from Asten, a very small town in which are probably more cows than people living, which is situated close to Eindhoven. I am 18 years old and started studying on University College Maastricht this year where I follow the interdisciplinary concentration of Humanities and Social Sciences. Furthermore, I am freelancer for a local radio station because I love journalism. Besides, I like to write and do some photography. Experiencing student life and tasting all the things Maastricht has to offer, I enjoy living in this beautiful city.
