    Most important is creating VIBE via foosball, pool, dress-up & theme nights or whatever you can come up with, were always open for suggestions. Applying yourself in any creative way is welcomed, except if it entitles running around naked impersonating Tarzan or Jane!! Lol.

    Second most important is booking & promoting our activities we have to offer, and this of course means doing them your self! Most of our activities is at discount especially for this reason and is reserved for interns staying the full duration.
