During KEI week the first-years are divided into small groups headed by senior students. They are introduced to all aspects of student city Groningen, including sports clubs and organizations for part-time jobs, and ranging from study support to night life, not forgetting student associations and their fellow first-years. For many students, the KEI gives them a flying start at the University and is the ideal way to get to know their new city. On Monday there is a large information market on the Vismarkt where KEI participants can learn about many different organizations. In the evening there will be an opening party on the Grote Markt.
