The VESTING Introduction Weekend takes place each year in the weekend prior to the academic year. During this weekend new VESTING Freshmen have the opportunity to get to know their fellow freshmen better. Furthermore, it is an excellent way to get acquainted with VESTING. During this camp, there will be absolutely no hazing and nothing is mandatory! The weekend is organized by the Introduction Weekend Committee.
This year's introduction weekend will take place partly online and partly offline. Activities on Saturday will take place mainly in Groningen whereas all activities on Sunday will be online.The activities in Groningen will take place from 10:30 until 16:30. Several measures have been taken to ensure we adhere to the guidelines set by health authorities. However, we still have to get permission from the RUG for the physical activities. We will inform you as soon as we know more about the physical activities in Groningen.
The weekend will be filled with fun and informative activities (click on the Introduction Weekend link above to get a more extensive view) where all students will be divided in their mentor groups, guided by two second-year or higher EOR-students, called the mentors.
In short, the VESTING Introduction Weekend is an amazing weekend to meet your fellow Freshmen and make new friends with whom you will study the rest of your bachelor!
