The ‘Vlaamse Geschiedkundige Kring’ is the association for all the Ghent University History students. Its homebase is the ‘Blandijn’, one of the central points of the Faculty Arts and Philosophy. The VGK is the perfect organisation to discover all the different aspects of your student life. It organises numerus cultural activities and participates each year in the ‘Nacht van de Geschiedenis’ (NIght of the History) organized by Davidsfonds. It provides study material, which has given lots of students a carefree summer vacation. It manifests itself in the area of sports and festivities as well. It organises for instance the annual ‘opening of the academic year’ party in the ‘Vooruit’. To top it all off, the VGK offers her members two cultural trips and one ski trip each year.
