LaTeX Workshop

Date & time: Monday 14th of September, 15:00 till 17:00
Location: V 5161.0208, V 5161.0283

Are you worried about writing a report for Imperative Programming? Do you want to know how to include images in your practical report? Or are you wondering why we are giving a support workshop about a type of paint? Then join our workshop on LaTeX!

In this two-hour workshop, we will introduce you to the world of LaTeX. We will begin by showing you how to build a basic TeX-document, after which we will show you how to include programming code, lists, images, references and tables. During the second hour, you will bring all these lessons into practice, with some help from us. If you want to learn how to easily produce your lab reports, be sure to join this support session!

Drinking Games Workshop

Date & time: Tuesday 15th of September, 20:00
Location: Hotshots, Gelkingestraat 9

First years, we welcome you all to your new study, study association and of course your student life. We feel it is our duty to introduce you to all these three. Tonight will be focused on the the last. Student life goes hand in hand with partying and drinking, and a big part of that is drinking games. We as veteran students have built up quite a repertoire of fun games to play, and we would like to teach you some of the most known, but also some extraordinary or uncommon games.

Senior members, you are all very welcome to join us and drink and play along, and teach the first years some of your favorite games.

Tickets sold at the door will get you drinks while stock lasts. Ticket price: € 7,50 for people ≥18 years old; and € 5,00 for people <18 years old. Of course there will be soda available for non-drinkers.

Almost half a year after the trip to New Zealand it is time for the afterparty! During the afterparty you can talk about the memories you have of the trip or the memories you have of staying behind. You can even just come by to drink beers with your friends and talk about something completely different.
