A letter filled with love

Hi everyone!

Valentine's day is almost upon us. I think this is a good holiday because it gives me an excuse to eat all the chocolate and cake I like. But weather you love or hate the holiday, I hope you will feel a little extra love on the day itself.

As board, we will firstly share some love with our active members during the Lovely Little Active Members Activity! All active members should have gotten an email with a sign up link. While the actual activity is still a surprise, I can promise you it will be a lot of fun!

On Wednesday, out brand new programming committee, Fully Connected Graph, will give an introduction to competitive programming. The aim is to help you improve your abilities to solve creative programming puzzles. It promises to be a very fun and informative event!

Then a little further away in the future, there will finally be another RDW Self Driving Challenge! At the challenge, two teams will compete to program the best functioning self driving car. This year, as a twist, the cars will be built of Lego!

Lastly, the green working group still has it's applications open. If you want to help our association achieve sustainable goals, make sure to sign up!

And that was the newsletter for this week, I hope everyone will have a lovely week, and I will see y'all again next week!

Hasta la vista,


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!

YearbookCee: Every year, the YearbookCee creates and releases a yearbook that documents and highlights all the highs and lows of one year. It is a fun and creative process, with a very tangable end result. Join it if you want to be part of this process!

StudCee: The StudCee is here to provide study support! Either by organizing support lectures, hosting old exams and summaries online, or maintaining an awesome tutoring system, they try to give students that little extra edge on a more personal level, and make sure to have fun in the process.

SporTee: The goal of the SporTee is to keep the members of Cover in shape by organising sporty and fun activities. Things like bouldering, karting, and ice skating are all among the fun activities they have organised!

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

Nice to know

The learning community 'Business Value of Artificial Intelligence' is about how artificial intelligence contributes to the capabilities and competitiveness of organisations in today's digital times. Several organisations will be involved in the learning community that will provide teams of students with assignments, to make you work on and learn about the business applications and challenges around AI. Many organisations are still in the early phases of exploring the possibilities and the discovering the impact of these new technological opportunities on their processes, which makes it a very interesting and relevant field.

Part of the learning community will be a trip to the Berlin HUB, one of the largest conferences on IT and Digitalization in Europe.

More information can be found here, and email Bas Baalmans in case you have any questions or want to sign up!

Together with colleagues from various universities/organizations (e.g. VU, TUDelft, University of Twente, TNO), we are organizing a national challenge on the automated discovery of security vulnerabilities in the form of a Capture the Flag (CTF) event. We are looking for teams of up to 4 students from RUG to attend the event.

The registration for the event is now open (deadline: February 20th).
