The new year has started!
After a fun introductory day and a sunny last vacation weekend, the new academic year has officially started today. We look forward to seeing you soon — maybe during one of the activities you can find in the agenda?
To first-year students (who signed up after last week’s newsletter): we’d hereby like to welcome you to Cover. Cover is the study association for Artificial Intelligence and Computing Science at the University of Groningen. We help you during your studies and organize cool activities.

BIT (BIT of Introductory Time)
BIT is a period with activities in September to get to know the ins and outs of studying and student life. In groups of 8 first-years, led by 2 older students, you can visit various activities. You get to know lots of people and make new friends. Check bit.svcover.nl for info and registration.
To senior students: would you like to lead a BIT group to help first-years get to know Cover? Then sign up on bit.svcover.nl! You can sign up with someone else if you’d like to lead a group together.
