Exams are coming!

Dear members,

Exams and final deadlines are slowly approaching... BUT WORRY NOT! We have got you COVERed with fun and relaxing activities as well as support lectures to help you pass your courses!

Next week after the TAD, we organise a Board game night. If you want to have a calm and fun night after an exhausting day full of preparations for your exams, join us and you won't be disappointed! We will bring games, you will bring a good mood!

The StudCee is organising a couple of support lectures for various courses before the exams. In case you have troubles with Calculus, Signals & Systems, Discrete Structures or Introduction to Logic (AI), go and visit their great support events!

All the best,



Nice to know!

Vacation at Anderwijs (Dutch only): Anderwijs is een landelijke vereniging die educatieve vakantiekampen organiseert voor middelbare scholieren. Onze insteek is uniek in Nederland, in dat we kampen organiseren tegen kostprijs (want: vrijwilligers) en met een algemeen nuttig doel (bijspijkeren). Kinderen die bij Anderwijs op kamp komen hebben veelal een achterstand op school, door ziekte of anderszins, en hebben daarnaast soms ook leerproblemen. Wij zijn op zoek naar geïnteresseerde studenten die het leuk zouden vinden om leiding te worden op een kamp, samen met andere studenten en pas afgestudeerden uit het hele land. Ervaring is geen vereiste, maar openstaan voor nieuwe ervaringen wél! Op onze site vind je alle informatie.

Vacancy Universiteitsbibliotheek: The University Library is looking for someone to upgrade the Twitter Archive in the short term for the DNPP department (Documentation Center for Dutch Political Parties). The developer should have knowledge of a MySQL and Laravel framework. The restoration of the Tweets and taking care of the completeness and correctness of the data is the highest priority. An infinite number of characters (no maximum) must be set in the repository. Furthermore, creating a front-end is important. The appearance of it could be derived from the recently revamped website, so that the repository is recognisable as being from DNPP (and the RUG). In addition, visitors should be given the opportunity to search in the tweets of politicians, parties and their subsidiaries by using a search function. If you are interested, please contact: Pieter van Boven ( or Teijo Doornkamp (

Is there a topic of which you could never tire? You would like to hear about different experts from the field for a whole afternoon? Then organising a symposium is right up your alley!
