FAQ — Vaakgestelde vragen

I would like to join an association, can I just walk into any activity?

Most of the time you can walk in, sometimes registration is required. Feel free to attend, at any time of the year! Maybe bring a friend, or contact someone at the board to ask questions.

I would like to join a circle or club, but don't want to be hazed, should I?

Although a hazing is not scary at all, we totally understand that not everyone wants to do this. You don't have to be afraid, you can go to most of the activities without being hazed! Only some cantuses of some associations are closed, but feel free to ask people of the associations themselves.
