Calendar September 2018
  • 6th of September: Pub quiz in collaboration with the University (first years only)
    Test your knowledge during the Pub quiz organised by the Introcie and the RUG at Café Time Out. All first year and Master students of European Languages and Cultures are welcome to join. The questions will somehow be related to European Languages and Cultures and therefore a nice evening is guaranteed. Our personal advice? Have dinner with your mentor group in advance and then join us all together! The quiz will start at 8 o’clock at Grand Café Time Out and there will be no entrance fee.
  • 7th till 9th of September: Introduction camp (first years only)
    Make sure you don’t miss this weekend, because it will be so much fun! The introduction camp is designed to make all first year students feel welcome. During the weekend, you will meet new people and make friends. Getting to know Esperia will help you for the rest of study. The weekend will be full of awesome activities and games and it does not have any kind of hazing (ontgroening) or initiation activities. This weekend is supposed to be fun and relaxed only. It will cost €60,- for members and €65,- for non members. You can sign up for the introduction camp of the academic year ’18-’19 via this link.

  • 11th of September: Back2School Social
    School is back and so is Esperia. Let’s celebrate this during the very first social of the year! We are excited to see you all again and can’t wait to welcome the new Esperians. On this day, the new board will be installed during the General Members Assembly, which gives us another reason to party! We feel that we need to prepare you for the new academic year. Therefore, the theme is ‘Back2School’. Show us your inner nerd, and dress up like a real ELC geek! Tuesday the 11th of September – 21.00 o’clock – Café de Doos.  Be there or be square!

It is free to attend for members and will only cost €3,- for non members. Here you can sign up for this activity.
  • 19th of September: Committee Q&A

  • 20th of September: Lasergaming (first years only)
    It is time for you to show your inner James Bond! We will go to Target Lasergame Groningen and the only thing you have to do is let yourself go completely.
