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.

The lustrum website is LIVE!

March 29th, 2021

The lustrum activities week of SVTN “J.D. van der Waals” is rapidly closing in and all the lustrum committees are working hard to present fantastic activities to all the members of the association. The GLC created a beautiful website to get a good overview and more information about all the activities when they come available. This is also the place to be to subscribe to all the activities when necessary! It is possible to visit the website by following this link. But, make sure your university VPN is off since it interferes with the way the website is built and thus it restrains you from entering the website. We hope to see everybody at all the amazing activities which are planned between May 17th and May 23rd!
