Week review

While the end of the year is coming closer and everybody is making sure they have plenty of vacation plans, we're still having tons of activities up till then.

Last Friday we had the Alumni Social where alumni came to have a beer and a chat with the current members. Of course it was also a bit like a reunion for a lot of people and it was great fun.

On Monday we had Wind surfing which had amazing weather. The wind took up a bit later in the clinic so we could first try the basics and later on pick up some speed. A big thanks to the boys and girls from SurfAce for making this possible!

After that we had the Candidate Board Announcement Social in the evening. Our new 6 person board was announcement and goes as following:

  • Chairman: Max Velich

  • Secretary: David Homan

  • Treasurer: Daan Lambert

  • Commissioner of Internal Affairs: Chris Ausema

  • Commissioner of External Affairs: Jan Christiaan Zwier

  • Commissioner of Education: Emily Beuken

Up next was EsGalatie on Wednesday with a lot of different study associations. People had great fun with the roaring twenties theme and the unlimited beer and wine.

Hope to see you all at the staff BBQ this evening!


And here is a snap of the candidate board after their announcement: Candidate board
