EL CID: from boat tours to mud wrestling Published on 19 August 2019 The EL CID introduction week has come to a close. This was the week when first-year students got to know one another, the city and their study programme better. See the week in photos. Assembling at Lammermarkt. Which one's my group? Before the week could start, a lot of hard work was put in by a lot of mentors. Photo: Willemijn Roebroek. The opening party got everyone in the right mood. Photo: Remco den Arend.
