On a more serious note...

Hey all! This week the newsletter will be on a bit more serious note, as we are struggling to find a new candidate board. The application committee has received too few application letters to start the application procedure. Therefore there will be a brainstorm to think about what the next academic year could look like for Cover, and we'll come to a conclusion during the General Assembly on June 3rd. We urge all of you to attend, as the outcome of those discussions will have a great influence on the future of Cover, and will therefor affect all of you!



Student support for mental wellbeing & help with studying

In Nestor, you can find the tap Study Info, which is where you can find the following initiatives of the Student Service Centre (SSC):

  • a free study group, in which you get connected with a couple of students and a trainer to motivate each other and make a planning for the week.

  • a free thesis group, which is the same idea, but focused on writing a thesis.

  • a free course that teaches you how to deal with postponing stuff and a lack of motivation during the corona crisis.

  • a free one-on-one conversation with a trainer from the Student Service Center that will give you personal advice on how to effectively study during the corona crisis.

In the tap Study Info, you can also find the student psychologists and the initiative All Ears if students need someone to talk to. Study Advisors are also always available for a short chat or study related advice.
