Each year VESTING tries to welcome the new freshmen with open arms. The first moment for the freshmen to get in touch with VESTING is during the KEI-week social, which takes place on the Monday afternoon of the KEI-week. The weekend prior to the academic year, the VESTING Introduction Weekend takes place. This is the perfect opportunity for VESTING Members to get to know their fellow freshmen and VESTING.
During the first week of the academic year, VESTING organizes a freshmen lunch and a LaTeX workshop. These two events take place on the same day. The freshmen lunch is free of charge and takes place at the ACLO at Zernike. LaTeX is the mathematical variant of Microsoft Word. Within the studies of econometrics LaTeX is used very regularly and for this reason VESTING organizes a workshop about this programme. The workshop is free of charge.
In the third week there will be an activity organized for freshmen students and their mentors only. Last year we went bowling and pooling. This activity has as main goal to get in touch with your fellow students outside the college rooms and to evaluate at an informal way how the first weeks are going.
