The time is finally there,

Your journey can start.

Behold and beware,

A beautiful piece of art

So swiftly pick up the Almanac of 2020-2021,

As this year can never be undone.

The Van der Waals room is where you will find the book,

And the committee hopes you will adore its look.


There are new episodes of the Sinterwaals serie. House of piets part 1 and 2 are already online!!! So if you are curious what problems are arising this year make sure to watch them and maybe find a hint who is going to be the next sinterwaals… Part 1, part 2


Van der Waals is currently looking for exam trainers for Advanced Calculus (2DBN10) and Applied Quantum Physics (3CQX0). The exam training will take place in the lecture-free week. You will receive a monetary compensation for six hours.

Please note that it is preferable (not mandatory) that your grade for the course was at least an 8 out of 10.

If you are interested, please send a mail to study@vdwaals.nl and indicate which of the two courses you are interested in.


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 πŸ™‚


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 12th lustrum of Van der Waals will be celebrated with a lot of fun activities from May 12 and May 28, of which the subscriptions are now open! The activities are both on campus and online! Activities range from a lustrum reunion to an online N-Party, so there will definitely be something that suits your interests!

We hope to see you there πŸ™‚


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!


All the Adobe Creative Cloud (Adobe CC) licenses are from this date onward declared invalid as most of you already have seen in the email from IMS. This means that we cannot use programs like Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, and Acrobat DC anymore for β€˜free’ until further notice from the IMS. The committees where these programmes are a necessity are currently covered by a license via the Applied Physics faculty for which we are very grateful. The board is currently evaluating what the best points of action are for the future. But this can take some time, so stay tuned.
