Event Managers

The Event Managers (EMers) help the KEI-board organise the KEI-week from May onwards. During their first month they are mostly preoccupied with helping the Director of Acquisition. The first month also contains a lot of social activities in the evenings in order for EMers to get to know each other better, and a weekend away with the KEI Executive Board to get to know them better. From June Event Managers work on the KEI-week three afternoons a week. They keep themselves busy with things like organising speakers for events, making program booklets and various logistics for the events. July onwards marks the pinnacle of the EMers business, from then until the end of the KEI-week they will be working fulltime on organizing the events. From this point on the Event Managers get their own office. While the rest of Groningen is sleepy and quiet, they work like bees to put together the best introduction week in the Netherlands. During the KEI-week itself, the EMers are responsible for several of the events as well as being in charge of the EVENT-crew. The EVENT-crew are volunteers who help set-up, support and dismantle KEI-events.

In short: the Event Managers are the power-houses behind the success of the KEI-week!

What does the KEI-week have to offer?

During the KEI-week you get to know all the different aspects of Groningen. The KEI-week provides general information about renting a room student grants. You can also get in touch with sports organizations, student societies and other sorts of associations. Besides all this, there will be a lot of festivities and activities which you can participate in.

Can the KEI-week be seen as an initiation?

No, not at all! You should see the KEI-week primarily as something that is just fun to do. It is a week full of information. Signing up for the KEI-week does not mean you are obligated to participate in the online events. You are free to join the events you like.

Is it possible for me to change KEI-groups during the KEI-week?

Yes it is. If you want to change your KEI-group for any reason you can contact the OFFICE-crew. To do so, you can call them (050 363 80 90), email them (info@keiweek.nl) or contact them via Whatsapp (+31 6 4422 6680).

If you have found another group which you think is more fun or suits you better? Thats also possible, you’ll will have to contact the OFFICE-crew about your replacement. This is important because we need to know which group you’re a part of in case of an emergency.

What does ‘KEI’ stand for?

KEI stands for “Kommissie Eerstejaars Introduktie” , which can be translated as “The commission for the introduction of first-year students”.

The KEI-week is the oldest, largest and cheapest introduction week in the Netherlands.

When does the KEI-week takes place?
