Apply for Board 28

Board 28

We urge you to consider applying for the Cover board. An association like Cover can only be kept alive by us students, and if there will not be a new board next year, Cover will have to severely downgrade on many fronts. We want to emphasise how truly unfortunate that would be. If you have some time to spare next year, and you find yourself willing to do your part for the association, please consider applying. For more information click here.

Next week, we do ...

On Monday we have a brainstorm, where we discuss issues that arose during the General Assembly (June 12) with regards to the future of the association in case of the board not being able to find a new board in time. We would like to invite you to discuss potential scenarios such as interim boards, smaller boards or other solutions. If you would like to support this association and help with finding a solution, then join us!

Study Support Lecture

Are you being weighted down by the back propagation? Are you getting stuck in local minima? You should come to the Studcee support lecture for Neural Networks! We will have a presentation going over as much of the course content as we can as well as answering any questions you might have.

The Alumni Social will not only be for current Cover members, but also for people who used to be members at Cover! If you want to know what these people are doing after finishing their AI or CS studies, or just like to hear stories about the good old days at Cover, come join us! Note: this social will be at Het Heerenhuis!

General Assembly

In this upcoming General Assembly, we discuss important topics such as the future of the association. A General Assembly is a meeting to which every member (and only those) is invited to discuss the future and current state of the association. If you are interested in the internal affairs of Cover, come and join a discussion about events, the budget, the committees and exciting ideas. All major decisions are made at General Assemblies, so, needless to say, it is important that as many members as possible are present.

We want you to be in 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!

SympoCee: A symposium is a big event consisting of multiple speakers and activities surrounding a topic. Have you enjoyed events like the SNiC or the Career Day? Then, organising a symposium might be just right for you! You will learn many life skills, like how it is to find speakers and how the finances behind a big event like this work, and of course, how it is to work within a group of other students. The SympoCee is the committee that organises this symposium every year.

ExCee: This committee organises a multi-city trip for usually more than a week! Joining this committee means to design and plan for the perfect trip for you and your fellow members. You decide on where to go and how to spend the money. You will experience how it is to work towards an extraordinarily rewarding experience, while making friends on the go. For more information and inspiration check out the website of the previous ExCee (Excursion Committee).

MxCee: Similiarly to the ExCee, the MxCee (Mega Excursion Committee) organises a trip spanning cities, countries and (sometimes) continents! Is organising an ExCee too easy for you? Then you might want to consider joining this committee: a trip that is longer, farther and more expensive!

RoomCee: The Cover Room is the beating heart of Cover. The RoomCee keeps the room open and organised. You get to decide how the interior looks and you are in charge of the Thursday Afternoon Drinks every week.

PropaganDee: The PropaganDee is the committee that designs, creates and prints posters for Cover. They assure the quality of Cover's promotion.

Studcee: The StudCee is the committee that provides study related activities for Cover. They give study support lectures for courses in the degree programme, workshops to develop skills as well as managing an exams and summaries database. They have recently created a tutoring system which allows our members to find tutors easily.
