IE BOTW on the roof top of the Hotel Puerta de America

Written on July 26, 2013 by Campus Life in Social

OPuerta America Junene of the best spots of seeing Madrid from the top is the roof of Hotel Puerta de America. So we decided to choose the venue as one of  BOTW places for June, starting early in order to enjoy the sunset over the MADcity.

Puerta America June3

Students from different IE programs gathered there to enjoy the wide variety of cocktails at discounted prices, and the nice music surrounded.

Some students went to the CAPEA on the same Puerta America June2day, the famous Spanish tradition.  Some went home to change, some just came the way they were dressed, directly with the buses from the CAPEA event. The 5 star hotel citizens were a bit surprised while they were taking the elevator, but we are IE students… we like surprising!It was again a great night, lots of shouts of laughter, lots of new friends in different places on earth, lots of fun and getting together.

Thanks all of you for coming and making this great night happen.

IE BOTW Beer Olympics

Written on July 10, 2013 by Campus Life in Social

beer-olympics5It has now been almost 3 months since the inaugural Beer Olympics was held at O’Connors Bar (C/ Almagro, 3) on April 19th. For those of you who did not attend it or weren’t here yet, you really don’t know what you missed. It was a flash from the past… That is, if your past included a fraternity or house parties with drinking games. For the newbies it was a good chance to explore their inner freshman that was never given a fair chance. By midnight there was a beer pong tournament being played by seasoned veterans on a plywood covered pool table: regulation size.

beer-olympics4Several makeshift tables were used to train up and coming athletes, upstairs and down. The whole bar was taken over with inspirational athleticism.

Meanwhile, in the other room teams were competing in flip cup round by round. Of The Week Team was successful from the beginning till the end, upsetting the competition with a commanding lead right from the start. Team Captain Jim Rand was quoted as saying “This is my house!”. Someone is yet to prove him wrong. And that, my friends, is an official challenge for the next Beer Olympics.   

beer-olympics3The next games have not yet been officially planned, but they are sure to show up again before the die hard BOTW crew calls it a year. More games are planned. Blind Man’s Stumble anyone? Perhaps some balancing acts? Maybe even a keg stand? Anyone got any other bright ideas? Join IE Bar Of The Week Facebook Page and submit your suggestions: not only for Beer Olympics, but for other events as well. Try to be creative, eh?

Lots of love,

IE BOTW Team

Interview with a club: IE Social Club & IE BOTW

Written on April 2, 2013 by Campus Life in Other Activities, Social

IE Social Club CoordinatorsWho are we?

IE Social Club has a unique mission, not to stand alone, but instead to work with all other clubs at IE to recruit for events and help enhance your experience. Bar of the Week is a weekly event we host at a fun establishment in Madrid that all IE students can look forward to attending and meeting new people. Throughout your time at IE you develop very tight-knit groups with peers in your own program but this gives students exposure to like-minded students you may not otherwise meet.

Current Coordinators

Selva Dilek Oztaskin – Istanbul, Turkey- Master in Visual Media Communication
Betsy Ditrinco – Rochester, NY – Master in Visual Media Communication
Estrella Jaramillo – Córdoba, Spain – Master in Corporate Communication
Jim Rand – Vancouver, Canada – International Masters in Business Administration
Bhuvan Rustagi – Delhi, India, International Masters in Business Administration

Club Activities

As IE Social Club, our aim is to help the rest of the clubs, create an atmosphere where the students and the alumni can share their experiences and help each other. We do get-togethers weekly under the name of Bar Of The Week, so that we can meet and introduce students from different masters and also alumni who already experienced the IE student life.

Our Vision

IE Social Club Coordinators 3We are thinking about doing bigger events where we can host the maximum amount of students and alumni in special venues, doing very well prepared get-togethers. We would like to keep up to date all our contacts so in the future some students might be able to find a good match with one of them and work together in their future jobs. A company needs people from all areas, from the administration to communication, so why shouldn´t IE students count with each other while they are opening their businesses or looking for the right person in any field in the company they work for? IE Social Club´s activities are the places to meet and maintain the contact with each other. We will do our best to create the best atmosphere of friendship and hopefully this will last for long years.

Get in touch and participate!

You can contact us through IE Communities, on Facebook through the page IE Bar of the Week (BOTW) or by email for any questions regarding collaboration with the club or suggestions. We are open to any kind of suggestions about helping the other clubs, creating an event or collaborating with the get-togethers.
