During the year, Labyrint organizes the most diverse activities: from lectures and a congress to parties and social activities. Almost all activities are organized by the various Labyrint committees. Here you will find an overview of the type of activities that take place.
Family & Friends Day
Saturday February 4th 2023 the Family & Friends Day will take place! This is thé chance for friends and family to experience a day in the life of a first year psychology student. There will be a lecture, and you - together with your family and friends - can join several different workgroups. Everything on this day will revolve around the theme: ‘’Breathe In, Breathe Out’’. A free lunch will be provided, as well as drinks afterwards. In other words, you have to be there!
Tickets are €12,50 per person, with a maximum of 4 tickets per person. This means every first year student can bring 3 people with them. The Family and Friends Day will take place at the FSW (Wassenaarseweg 52) and will last from 09:30 to 15:30.
We hope to see you there!!
Case Study Day
A case study day is the perfect opportunity to get a hands-on experience with a specific sector and/or company. During a case study day, you will receive various lectures from experts in the field and you will work together on a case. Usually the day ends with a tour of the workplace.
When you think of Christmas, you think of delicious food and being with your friends. During the Christmas dinner, you can enjoy several courses of the best food while you end the year enjoying a drink and the presence of your friends.
Every year, Study Association of Psychology Labyrint and SPS-NIP work together to organize the Psychologist and Future Perspective Congress (PFP Congress). The congress gives you a glimpse into your future prospects as a psychology student, whatever direction you want to go. The congress consists of 24 different speakers in four different rounds. There is also a lunch and a drink to network.
Various drinks take place during the year. Every second Tuesday of the month there is a monthly borrel at the vergulde Kruik (when the current restrictions allow it), during which you can even score free drinks if you arrive on time!. During these drinks the destinations of trips or themes of a certain activity are often announced. Often there are also reunions of the trips or the FYW (see below), where nice memories are retrieved with an after movie or the best photos.
First Years Weekend
Every September, Labyrint organizes a First Years Weekend (FYW), exclusively for all first-year psychology students. The weekend is aimed at getting to know your fellow students and making friends for life. You will also become acquainted with the study association and student life. For example, a theme party, a cantus, and various games are planned.
During the annual gala you have the chance to shuffle romantically with your date or dance with your friends until the feet hurt, the floor is worn out and the beer barrels are empty. Time to take your most beautiful evening dress from the attic, blow the dust off your shoes and bring back your bow tie: the most fun party with a chic edge.
With various excursions, Labyrint takes you to the most interesting institutions. You can think of an Alzheimer's center in Amsterdam, or the dissecting room in the LUMC. During the excursion you will learn all about these places and you can ask all your questions to the experts who will show you around.
During a G.A. (General Assembly) members of Labyrint get the opportunity to make their voice heard and to think about the future of the association. All committees also provide an update on their progress and there are occasional votes on important matters.
Throughout the year, Labyrint organizes various lectures in various areas. You can think of a lecture about music therapy, forensic psychology, or artificial intelligence (AI). Speakers from different areas will tell you all about their field. This gives you the opportunity to find out much more about psychological subjects outside of your studies.
During the networking event, various companies come to the faculty to tell more about their work. This is the ideal opportunity to show your face to the companies and ask all your questions. This way you can exchange your contact information. You never know if this will come in handy for an internship or even a job.
During the Labyrint parties, you can go crazy to the best tunes and hits. Dance with your friends until the early hours of the morning and experience how great it is to be a student. Our parties will never get boring with a different theme every time.
After every exam period, Labyrint organizes a post-exam drink. Here you can relax after studying hard and relax with your friends and fellow students while enjoying free drinks and fun games.
Labyrint also has the most diverse social activities. Think of laser gaming, glow golf, a visit to an arcade hall, a pub quiz, or a city game. Our committees come up with the best things so that there is something for everyone!
During the pub crawl, Labyrint takes you along the nicest bars in Leiden. Enjoy a diverse range of drinks and specialties and decide what will be your new favorite place to drink in Leiden. There is a pub crawl planned for the 22nd of September so make sure to be there!
Every year Labyrint travels to the most beautiful and interesting places! Labyrint offers several different trips every year. You can think of a fun weekend to Bruges or Cologne, but also an 8-day study trip to, for example, Vienna, Krakow, Copenhagen or Budapest.
In addition to lectures on interesting topics within psychology, there are also various workshops. During these workshops, you will not only learn more about a certain subject, but you can also get to work yourself. A real hands-on approach to introduce you to the most interesting themes.
