Week review

We started off the week with the General Assembly, now starting in the afternoon. It all went very well and we were done before 8. I think the change to include pizza and a beer and having it at the university made it a lot more attractive to go to it. So I hope even more people will show up the next GA, because this is the moment you can make your voice heard and let us know what you want Cover to do.

On Tuesday we had An introduction to price prediction and trading tools by ING, which was at News Cafe. They had a very interesting talk about bonds trading and afterwards we had some beers with them.

The Study Support sessions also started this week, I think the StudCee is doing a great job of helping everybody pass their exams!

The ActiviTee is hosting a lollypop action for the next social, so if you want to send your secret crush, your lover, your crazy friend or just yourself a lollypop with a message, make sure to drop by the Cover room and fill in a form!

Valentine Social

Wednesday 7th of February, 21:30, 't Gat van Groningen, Poelestraat 51

Valentines day is coming up soon and that means love is in the air! To prepare you for this day we will be doing a lollypop action. This means you can buy a lolly beforehand and write a card to go with it. During the social we will hand these out to the correct persons. So if you want to declare your love to your secret crush, want to send your girl/boyfriend a nice treat or just want to make a friend happy, make sure you don't forget to write your card and order your lollypop in time.

A lollypop will cost 1 euro and you have to order it before 2 February! Ordering can be done by filling out the form in the Cover room and writing your message.


Announcements by the board:

  • Good luck with your exams and come study in the "Cover Study Corner" (room 41b of the Bernoulliborg)!

Cover Study Corner

During the 2 weeks of the exams (22 January until 2 February) room 41b (the room next to the Cover room) of the Bernoulliborg will be an extra place you can study. We'll provide printed old exams (with answers where available) and of course there will be free coffee and tea. The room is reserved for Cover so it should offer a lot of extra study places for all of us when the study landscape is full. Hope to see you there
