About The Event

Moi mensen! 

That’s Gronings for hello people! Gronings (from Groningen, a lovely Dutch province in the north of the country), because in a couple weeks that’s exactly where we will be! So why would you want to go to Groningen? Here are some reasons to attend:

  1. Explore the Netherlands
  2. Celebrate the famous Dutch holiday, Sinterklaas
  3. Enjoy a weekend full of bonding and fun
  4. There are bikes and canals and a marketplace; amazing right?  
  5. Live a little, but not too much 

Take a break from your group projects and block your agenda for this new acronym (CGG) because Groningen is the place to be. We will have games, drinks and most importantly -- ourselves. *hand-in-hand emoji* Just joking, we will make sure that there is enough booze. *beer emoji*

We’re organizing a range of glamourous activities in the city, so there’s something for everyone’s liking. The definitive program isn’t out yet, but here are some things you may expect: 

✦ House party
