Introduction by the president
A warm welcome in Maastricht! A beautiful city where you will enjoy your student life in the next few years. Many people say this is the best time of your life, something I can only confirm by now. You will notice that your study is very important, but that it is evenly valuable to meet new people, improve your capabilities and develop yourself in areas which are not related to studying.
SV KoKo is the opportunity of Maastricht to achieve all of this. Since 1976 it is impossible to imagine the student life of Maastricht without KoKo. KoKo is characterized by its openness, diversity and equality and our 500 members make this a great club with a varied agenda. In one of KoKo’s many committees, you can develop your skills by for example organizing small activities, running the bar or hosting a festival for the entire city. Or you can join our financial committee to give advice on financial concerns. In one of KoKo’s sororities or fraternities you create friendships that last for a lifetime and meet people who can also you help you later in life, for example by searching a new job.
Thus, although obtaining enough credits in your study is very important, do not forget that activities you participate in beside your study will be just as important in the future. Now you have chosen the direction of your study, there is only one other logical choice to make: SV KoKo!

Introduction by the head of the INKY
The time has come! You’ve finished high school and your student life is finally about to begin. You’ve already made the right choice by choosing Maastricht! Maybe it’s a completely new city for you, but I’m sure you’ll be able to get everything out of your student life here. In the upcoming years you will discover what it’s really like to be a student. Whether you’ll find out how to cook together with your roommates or whether you will find out how to properly chug a beer, everything is possible in your student time and the opportunities are endless. Joining a student association will help you make the most of this time. You will make friends for life, but also gain a lot of experience with, for example, different committees. But that’s for later, you are now at the start of your student life and there is no better way to celebrate this by participating in the INKOM! You can recognize KoKo members by its yellow shirts during the INKOM. If you have any questions or if you would like to take a look around, don’t hesitate to talk to us or come by at one of our activities! See you then!
