More information

Feeling down…
We all know the feeling, but what does it really mean? And what does it try to tell us?

Emotions and feelings are beautiful, strange things: we like some, and from some, we run away as fast as we can… or try to fight them off.
Consider this, though: what if feelings are messages- they try to tell you your needs, what you should look for in a situation, or they try to remind you of things you might not be aware of at the time…

Friday, 3rd of December, join the Discussion hour if you want to share your experiences with managing your feelings and if you would like to find out how you can still do the things that matter to you even if you are in the middle of an emotional storm.

Borrels: QR code, no reservation

September 29th, 2021

From this week on the COVID-19 measures have changed. For the Borrel this means that you do not have to subscribe anymore and can just come by and see whether there are places left. This does mean that we will ask for a QR code and ID, to confirm your corona pass. Hopefully we will see many of you on Thursdays at the weekly Borrel 🙂

Lustrum paper

May 9th, 2021

The lustrum is closing in and you can obviously not wait until all the lustrum activities start. To kill the time between now and the activities the General Lustrum Committee created the lustrum paper! Enjoy a small piece about ‘time’, check who organised your favourite lustrum activity, or complete one of the puzzles at the end. Especially the one created by Da Vinci Derivatives. Solve this puzzle correctly and perhaps you will win a beautiful Da Vinci Bluetooth speaker! The lustrum paper can be found as an attachment to this news post or printed in the Van der Waals room.
