Time flies when you are having fun!
We are already more or less in the middle of the first block! Simply put, if the academic year was a pizza cut into 8 slices, we would only have 7 pieces left. I'm not sure if this is a good analogy, but it's certainly cheesy!
In just a few days we have the 3rd CoverTalks! Our speaker this time is Davide Grossi, our awesome in-house associate professor in Multi-Agent Decision Making at the Bernoulli Institute. With plenty of publications in the field we can't wait to hear his insights and answers to your juicy questions!
Later in the week we will play Schlagball at the Stadspark. If you don't know what Schlagball is, don't worry (I didn't know either)! In short, Schlagball is a simplified and fun variation of baseball. To get to the point: if you want to relive your childhood and enjoy a few hours outdoors in the company of your friends while hitting some balls at them, just join! There will also be some drinks for the bench players ;) Of course, we will take the RIVM corona guidelines into account. Therefore please sign up for the activity.
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!
