Welcome to Segovia for those who are joining IE University, and welcome back to those who are returning to the beautiful small town. It is a thrilling feeling to be back, and one of the best times to socialize and get comfortable in the new environment. Thus, I wanted to put together my top 9 events to partake in this September, in chronological order.
1. Baco’s Vanilla Villa
During the first week back for second years (and the week before first years start classes), on Friday 9th of September is Baco’s Vanilla Villa happening: a white party! They are one of the original groups to start party organizing for IE students and announced the details on their Instagram account! The party will take place in Sabbat and feature many great DJs! Make sure to get your tickets and start planning your all-white attire!
2. IE Club Fair
On Monday 12th of September, the Undergrad Club Fair at IE’s Segovia campus will take place from 11:30-1 PM & from 5:30-7 PM.

IEU’s Creativity Center is launching the initial session of Art & Thought classes. On Tuesday 13th of September, the details and the free ticket can be found on IE Connects! This particular workshop focuses on using art as a tool to evolve and uncover skills rather than the production of art, and can be fun for everyone!

To finish off your long day of socializing on Tuesday 13th of September, chose to socialize even more with Sense. With a meet and greet at Pub Bow and an after at Canavans-Theatre, commonly nicknamed “Irish”, you will be sure to vibe with the “Afrobeats, Reggaeton & Commercial” music.

The Culinary Club of Segovia will be hosting a cooking class for a limited amount of people on Wednesday 14th of September to teach them how to make various types of tapas and gazpachos, the interactive event is a perfect opportunity to learn from a Spanish student with gastronomy experience, meet new people in a fun environment, and enjoy delicious food and beverages! The information in regards to the event will be announced from their Instagram page.
8. Alcatraz’s Tropical Night
Run by our students, Alcatraz will be taking place on Thursday 15th of September! It is the first ever Irish Thursday of the year – if you did not already know, IE Segovia students typically go out to Irish Tuesdays and Thursdays – and the most memorable! This event will have a tropical dress code and transform Segovia’s favorite club into a rainforest. You can be updated in regards to tickets and more news on Alcatraz’s Instagram account.
9. Tanker Events: A Festival You Shouldn’t Miss
Tanker is a traditional festival, that all IE students from both campuses enjoy, and they are back again on Saturday 17th of September! The venue is still kept a secret however the details can be found on their Instagram page! Both previous Tanker festivals have been a huge success so you will want to be there for the third one.
