Nice to knows?! Jokes?! Ehmmm, sure. Welcome to another weird Newsletter.

   yet another comic

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!

MxCee: What is even better than an excursion? A MEGA excursion! Think big, bigger, biggest; the sky is the limit! Join the MxCee if you want to take the association to Mars or maybe the moon, or if we're being a bit more realistic: a cool place somewhere on earth, like New Zealand (2015) or the west coast of USA (2017).

PropaganDee: This committee creates beautiful promotional materials for Cover's events, that are displayed as posters and social media posts (such as our Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn). If you have a passion for graphic design and want to flex your creative muscle, this is the one for you!

SporTee: The SporTee is the committee that makes sure we get away from our desks every now and then! They have organized many different activities, ranging from a lowkey game of ultimate frisbee to bigger outings such as paintball. Do you have crazy, sporty ideas for fun events? Then this is the one for you!

Are you interested in joining a committee? Don't hesitate to contact Amber, our Commissioner of Internal Affairs!

Nice to know

DataDump Experiment!: It’s time for phase 2 of DataDump’s facial attractiveness experiment, in which we try to uncover whether masks make people more or less attractive. Pictures of people with and without masks have been gathered, and now we are looking for people to rate them! If you want to participate, you can find the link to the experiment above. It will take about 3 minutes. The experiment only works on PC.

The data gathered in the experiment will be anonymised, and no statements will be made about individual attractiveness ratings. We are only interested in whether there is a general difference in attractiveness when people do or don’t wear a mask.

Interested in Voice Technology?: On Tuesday 6 April 2021 Campus Fryslân is hosting an online event about Voice Technology together with study associations Cover and Twist. Dr. Matt Coler will open the event with an overview of the MSc. Voice Technology programme. The headline speaker, Daan van Esch (Google) will then give a talk entitled “Building Language Technology for Everyone”.

UG Career Café: The University of Groningen alumni department is organizing an interesting event on 22 April, about working in the North of the Netherlands: the UG Career Café 2021. At the event, alumni will be present from all study areas, including several alumni from FSE. FSE-students can talk to them about their experiences with working in the North of the Netherlands. Find out more about the UG Career Café!
