Introduction Period 2022

Hello soon-to-be ELC students!!

Starting university can be both very exciting and a little bit scary. This is why we want to help you with an introduction period in which you can meet your fellow students! Our introduction committee is already preparing incredible introduction activities for you. You do not need to be a member to join the introduction activities and there will be no hazing involved. 

Introduction camp:

The summer holidays are sadly coming to an end, but luckily you have got something to look forward to: our/Esperia’s introduction camp! As you might have heard already, the camp is taking place from 2-4 of September on the Dutch island of Schiermonnikoog. We have got some amazing activities planned for you during which you will get to know your fellow students and learn more about Esperia, the university and Groningen. (Disclaimer: there is no hazing involved.) The initial deadline was on the 26th of August, but no worries: if you forgot to sign up you can still do so this coming week until the 31st of August at 23.59 via this link. The price for the camp is 72 euros for members of Esperia and 80 euros for non-members (this includes costs for the location, all food, all the activities during the stay, and the boat tickets to Schiermonnikoog). However, it is important to note that we can only personally assure you with a spot. This means that one of the camp organisers will get in touch with you via text of email. We are really looking forward to the camp and hope to see you there!!

Furthermore, you will get the chance to apply for a committee yourself and organise events yourself. Looking forward to all this?

More information about this activity will be posted in the introduction WhatsApp group and on our socials.
