Week review

Exams are always a stressful time, luckily enough we started the week with a Boardgame Night to relieve some of it. I think all of us who were there, have enjoyed ourselves with many games, as there were many people to play games with. The rest of the week was mostly focused on the exams and deadlines of courses and I heard already quite a lot people that are happy with the Cover Study Corner in room 0041b, so we are really happy that we have the room for the following week as well. Also, if you like to take a break in the Coverroom, the Memory has added soup to K.A.S.T. for a nice snack during studying for exams. Good luck for the coming week if you have exams left, if you have not, have a lot of fun during your spare time or vacation!

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.

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
