The Alphabet Party

On Thursday the 22nd of February, it will be time again for one of the biggest student parties of the year! The Alphabet Party is an annual party, organised by several study associations of the universitiy of Groningen. Every year we choose a letter from the alphabet and base a theme on that letter. You can all make up your own costume based on the letter we chose. 

This years letter is the 'M' and the theme is 'Midnight Madness'! Buy your tickets as soon as possible and create a mad outfit! By showing your ticket at Firma Mulder you can even get 10% discount on your outfit. You can buy your tickets here by clicking join or at the Coffee Room, but keep in mind that you have to collect the physical ticket. Tickets cost €5,- in pre sale and €6,50 at the door.
