On Monday 2 September, following on from the official opening of the teaching building by Queen Máxima, a party atmosphere will take over the campus. The biggest party the university has ever organized has already more than three thousand guests.

Social media will play a key role during the evening. Students can determine the music genre for one hour via Twitter and text messages. And the social media team will be reporting live on the event throughout the evening on Twitter via #openingorion. The university hopes this will create a buzz around the opening of Orion. Then it will be time for the main acts: The Partysquad and Vato Gonzalez & MC Tjen.

The festivities begin with an Orion pre-party dinner at various restaurants in Wageningen. Everyone will be picked up at 19.15 with bicycle parade past the student societies. Waiting for them in Orion will be the dance group Ill Skill Squad and cabaret artist Jurg van Ginkel.
