ActiviTee: First borrel of 2015, 100 free beers!

Date & time: Wednesday 7th of January, 21:30
Location: De Tapperij

Because of the negative reactions about Ome Ko, in the new year we have a new location again: the Tapperij! The borrels will be at the first Wednesday of the month again and also private until one o'clock.

To celebrate the new year, the first 100 beer/wine/soda will be for free, so be on time!

In the beginning, the music will play softly, so you can chat a bit about your Holidays, Christmas dinner, New Years Eve, or whatever you like. Of course there will be also room to dance or to scream along with the music.

We hope you all come celebrate the new year with us!

EerstjaarsCie: Pub Crawl

Date & time: Friday 6th of February, 21:00
Location: Meet at "Drie Gezusters"

It's time for the first activity of the EerstejaarsCie! Are you ready for an incredible Pub Crawl through the center of Groningen?

This will be a great way to celebrate the start of the new year with your fellow AI and CS students. We will start at "Drie Gezusters" at the Grote Markt. When everyone is there, we will form the groups and start the pub crawl. At the end of the night we will come together at a (rented) secret location to have some more drinks!

During the event you only have to pay for your own drinks, there are no further expenses.

This activity will start with a photo quiz, which will consist of several rounds with different themes.

One of the rounds of the Photo Quiz will consist of recognising childhood photos of students and staff. For this, we need your help.

Do you have some nice Childhood pictures, school pictures or some old pictures of your family? Please send them to us, and you may recognise yourself during the Photo Quiz!

We'll have arranged a nice Christmas lunch for you after the quiz. If you want to join for the lunch, please sign up here. This way we will be sure that we'll have enough food for everyone. It's also possible to only join for the lunch (or only for the photo quiz).
