Ready, set, go!
Hey all! As the first week of lectures and assignments has already passed again, we sure all miss the holidays. To go back for one last moment, we're at the IntroCamp as of now, so If you're not there now rethink your decisions for next year! Next week the serious stuff is back, for example the first General Assembly where we discuss the future of the association as well as make important decisions! Hope you've all had a nice start of this year!
After the amazing Lustrum Cover celebrated last year, we should definitely not forget about Cover’s birthday this year. Come and join us the 20th of September during the celebration of the Dies! Even though it is still a surprise for you how we’ll celebrate Cover’s birthday this year, we’re certain it’ll be a fun day!
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!
Complaints Committee: The board is looking for people who would like to join the Complaints Committee! Do you feel eager to help resolve conflicts within the association whilst staying as objective as possible? Maybe you'd be interested in joining this committee! If you're interested or have any questions, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Language Buddy Committee: This new committee will be all about getting international students familiarized with Groningen and the Dutch culture. The buddies, who are members of this committee, are organizing several events for their international first-year students throughout the first year. Coupled with university-class Dutch lessons for the international students, this will enable first-years to put those freshly-learned Dutch phrases into action together with their buddies. Are you a Dutch student and would you like to show someone around in Groningen? Please consider joining the Language Buddy Committee!
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!
