In the last week of August, one week bevor the semester starts, the Student Association of Business Administration hosts the freshmen introduction (ESEF). Different events during this week should help the freshmen to have a good start in their studies. Older students answer their questions and give help e.g. by creating a timetable.
At the pub crawl the freshmen explore different bars and pubs of Mannheim in small groups. The main thing about the pub crawl is to get to know each other.
During this rallye the freshmen have to accomplish different tasks at different stations while they get to know the city of mannheim and each other in an easy way.
