Week review

The last week has been a very busy one! We started off last weekend with the Introduction Camp "Heroes vs. Villains", which was a big succes. Due to bad weather we couldn't do all the activities we had plannen, but thanks to some older years organizing a karaoke on Friday everybody still had a great time. The weather started to clear up on Saturday making it possible to do all the other activities as planned. We rounded up the weekend with a massive amount of money raised during the auction, so be sure to come to the after party to enjoy this!

After the weekend we kicked off the study week with the First year study corner which was well attended and there were plenty of older years available for questions. The Linux Workshop for CS and AI was also on Monday to help the first years get used to using linux. The add to this busy day we had the General Assembly in the evening, but luckily this was one of the fasted GA's every, so we could all turn in early.

On Wednesday there was the PubQuiz organised by the FirstyearCee. There was a good amount of people there and I heard they had a great time.

At time of writing this the Programming for Dummies for AI and CS is still going on, but I'm sure that it's helping a lot of first years better understand the basics of programming.
