Announcements of the board


Date & time: Wednesday 7 May, from 13:00 till 15:00

This afternoon, another KISO (Artificial Intelligence Student Meeting) will take place. You are all cordially invited to attend and discuss the courses you are taking.

The KISO is a relay for students that is held by students themselves. All students that are part of the many boards that the FWN, the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, has, are invited so they can directly pick up your feedback. The programme committee of the Artificial Intelligence degree will also be present. The discussions that take place during the KISO can be used to directly apply feedback to the courses: one of the main purposes of the KISO is to detect issues with courses as soon as possible, as to improve the course during its current run.

If you are interested in relaying your feedback by email, you can join the mailing list ''.

We will meet at the Cover room and will depart for room X at 12:55. There will be cookies and drinks available during the meeting.


Date & time: Thursday 1 May, 22:00
Location: Het Heerenhuis

All the students of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences come together at this annual party and get to know each other better with drinks and a DJ. It's the best moment to dance with that cute student you've been sitting next to all year! This year there are also some special events on this evening to have some extra fun with your fellow students. The theme is: "Uit het hoge Nerden", come dressed as a viking, nerd, farmer from Groningen, whatever nerdy or from the North.

Tickets are available at Cover and other study associations.
