Dear members,

On Wednesday, we want your opinion! We are discussing a proposal to reform the committee discounts within Cover. If you are interested or want to give your opinion join us and help forming this proposal. Let's have a Brainstorm with the Board.

On Thursday before during the TAD, we will here the destinations of the upcoming excursion. Exciting! Come to the Excursion Destinations Announcement TAD, enjoy free drinks and snacks (as usual) and listen to the ExCee announcing their great upcoming trip!

Also on Thursday, you can sign up for the Alphabet Party. This is an annual party organised by various study associations of the University of Groningen. Every year they choose a letter from the alphabet and base a theme on that letter. You can all make up your own costume starting with the letter we chose that year. This year the letter is S! You can either dress as a saint or a sinner this Valentine's and come party with us at the Huize Maas. The doors open at 22:30.

All the best,

We want you to be in a committee!

Here is a cool thingy for our new members: Ever heard of a committee? A committee is a group of friends that work towards a common goal. You can learn about all sorts of topics such as budgeting, planning, sponsoring, and much more! See the website for a complete overview of committees that are looking for members! If you want to apply for a committee please email A resume or motivation is optional, so feel free to just tell him you are interested!


The Cover Room, the beating heart of Cover. The Memory keeps this heart beating but always making sure the room is open for a few hours every week. You get to decide how the interior looks as well as being in charge of the Thursday Afternoon Drinks every week.


This is Cover's safest committee. The members of this committee can be asked to perform as an ERO at several activities. If something happens around the Cover Room we can of course also be of help. Apply if you are interested in being a true HERO.


The ParenTee is the committee responsible for showing the studies and university to students' parents. They do this by organising a parents day where you can invite your parents to take a tour. If you want to show your parents or your peers parents around, sign up for this committee.


The PropaganDee is the committee that designs, create and prints posters for Cover. They assure the quality of the Cover's posters, so that committees are able to focus on other tasks, without having to worry about posters.


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! The SympoCee organises a symposium every year for this very purpose, to educate Cover members on a wider range of topics.
