Summer is coming...

The AC/DCee has updated K.A.S.T., the system used for purchasing drinks and snacks. You can now easily purchase multiple products at once and there are buttons for your most frequent purchases. Additionally, you can now check your purchase history on your profile page on the website.

Next week, we do ...

On Thursday, the lovely RoomCee is organising a Summer Birthday TAD! Is your birthday during summer break and have you always wanted to celebrate it at Cover? Worry no more! On Thursday, all the Summer children can celebrate. There will be singing, there will be cheers, there may be cake. (Feel free to bake =3) Please sign up so we can give you a personal mention!

General Assembly

After the TAD, the General Assembly takes place. 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. You can sign up for pizza on the website!

It's almost the end of the year, and what better way to celebrate this than with a nice Staff BBQ? This will be done together with the people that made this year happen: the staff! So, join us Friday for nice food, nice people and hopefully nice weather for a maximum cost of €5,-.

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.
