Study Support Statistics

Mon 24 Oct, 15:00, BB 165

Do you still have some questions about Statistics? Are some topics still unclear? Join this last unofficial lecture given by students who followed the course in the past. They will walk you through all the content of the course once more and will try to answer your remaining questions.

This will be done by helping you explore and report on the data you find, a skill that is very relevant for the exam. We will not put the main focus on R; the support session is mostly meant to help you fill in some blanks and to explain to you some important bits of the Statistics course. There will also be an opportunity to ask general Statistics (course) questions.

Study Support Neurophysics

Tue 25 Oct, 13:00, BB 293

Do you have any problems with the theory of Neurophysics? Do you want help in preparing for you exam? During this study support session, we will discuss the physics component of Neurophysics, in order to help you with topics such as `mechanics' and help you understand the physics subjects that are relevant for your exam. We will not deal with the neuro- and biological components of the course.

Join this last unofficial lecture given by students who have ample experience with the topics you are having trouble with. We will see you there!

Struggling to find the right picture for your LinkedIn profile, résumé or even Facebook? The PhotoCee comes to your rescue! On the 28th of October we will open our temporary photo studio in 41b, right beside the CACHE. We will bring in some real professional equipment to make your picture as spot on as can be! During the day you can walk in and have your picture taken. It will be over before you know and you'll receive some great shots later via mail. Between 12 and 15 we are ready to take solo pictures of the faces of all Covers members and after 15 we will also take on the challenge of group pictures, with special priority for committee pictures. Maybe think about how you want to make use of the professional set-up and come prepared!

It is getting colder and darker outside, so it is time for the Wampex! The Wampex is a kind of survival puzzle tour at night. The total length of the tour is about 25 to 27km, if you take the correct route. Experience or training is not necessary. The route is described cryptically and leads through beautiful natural environments, meadows and over unpaved paths in or near Drachten. This year three teams can participate, consisting of at least 5 people and at most 7. Along the trip some assignments need to be fulfilled and puzzles must be solved.
