Week review

The end of the academic year is getting closer and closer, which also means that the exams are getting closer and closer. So we had three different study supports and we hope we helped a lot of people with their studies! On Thursday we had our Beer Olympics, which was very spectacular and members of Cover really showed us that they can drink and sport at the same time. The weather also was amazing, so I even swam in the Hoornseplas.

Next week the exams begin, so we don't have many activities. Still one Study Support, and in the weekend a Hackathon. If you want to join us, then don't forget to sign up!

The weather is going to be amazing this weekend, so don't forget to have some breaks inbetween the study sessions ;)

Borrel: Pyjama Party

Wed July 5, 21:30, De Tapperij

Come to the last borrel of this academic year! We're tired of learning and studying, so we are ready for lots of sleep, netflix, and more sleep. We also want to party, because we have holidays!
