Introductory Weekend 2021

10 – 12 September 2021
Sign up now!

Are you sick and tired of not having much social interaction with like-minded people? Did COVID throw a blanket over the wild and crazy parties that you could have had? And most importantly, are you looking forward to starting your student life at the RUG with a BANG?

Wait no longer then, because COVER TIME is going to be THE event of your year!

An era-themed introduction weekend organized by Cover’s IntroCee, COVER TIME will definitely get you psyched to be an AI/CS student at the RuG, while also giving the opportunity to get to know your peers in the course! It will be an absolutely amazing weekend filled with games and activities that will certainly bring everyone together as a community! We do not want to give away too much about the weekend, but we have planned some insane activities that include the theme, of which the most important is the social (exactly what you think it is going to be). We strongly encourage you to join the most incredible events that you will ever have in your university life, and we hope to see all of you on the weekend :)


COVER TIME will take place during the Kick-Off Week, which is tentatively from Monday, the 6th of September, till Sunday, the 12th of September. Currently, we are still in the process of finalizing details and as such, will announce the cost of COVER TIME in due time (pun intended).

In order to guarantee the safety and good ambiance during the introductory weekend, the study association is affiliated with the ACI (Advies Commissie Introductietijden). The ACI is an independent RUG agency which advises us where needed. It is always possible to contact them with general questions regarding the introductory period through their website.

Stadslab Terrace Social

What better way to begin the new academic year than having a social with fellow Cover members in the amazing Stadslab Groningen? The IntroCee is organizing this banger of an event which includes good music, food and drinks at a lovely terrace location!

We highly encourage all newly joining first years participate in this social to get to know your peers in your course, while at the same time, senior years can also join, but do note that priority will go to first years! We will finalize the attendance a couple days before the event!

The sign up fee for the event is 10 euros but with this you will not only get access to the terrace but also a coctail (alcoholic or non-alcoholic), 4 more free drinks of your choice, and plenty of snacks. (What a deal!)
