New block, new me...
...and other lies I tell myself (title of my next book (or podcast. I haven't decided yet))
A new block just started and with it everyone is trying to figure out the structure of all their courses! Or maybe not. It does sound like a good idea though. In any case, if you want to hear any past experiences with a course you can always ask other members! They are always willing to help :)
Next Wednesday we have our next CoverTalk, where life, wellbeing and happiness will be discussed. If you are fascinated about any of these super vague and fascinating concepts, you should join! Our amazing speaker will be announced very very soon, stay tuned!
On Thursday evening, we will have another Cover Radio, where we will reflect on the events and happenings since the beginning of the year, and fantasize about what's to come. With the holidays creeping around the corner, we might even throw in a sneaky little Christmas tune (no, it's not early. We are past Halloween).
Last, but certainly not least, a lunch lecture with ASML is coming up on the 23rd of the month! If you are unfamiliar with ASML, they are nice people that make machines that can manufacture semiconductor chips! In the lunch lecture, we will get to know what a software engineer does, while enjoying some nice free lunch 🥪!
Are you interested in joining a committee? Don't hesitate to contact Amber, our Commissioner of Internal Affairs!

A message from the AI Academic Advisors:
During open office hours, students are welcome to attend in groups, if they have a common question, or are interested in listening in on questions asked by others. For personal questions, we suggest students make an appointment that others can't 'burst into'. If you are a bachelors student of AI, you can join here (Tuesday 11.00-11.30) and if you are a masters student of AI, you can join here (Thursday 11.00-11.30).
