A month ago we asked our members if they wanted to help us make a small difference in this new Corona-world through donating lab goggles to the Red Cross. The Red Cross will distribute these lab goggles across different hospitals in the Netherlands, where they will be put to good use. We are happy to inform you that some of our members joined this initiative. From our members we collected 162 euro for lab goggles, and the association also chipped in by donating the ‘borrow’ lab goggles that we had laying around. This means that we have send a total of 36 lab goggles to the Red Cross. We are thankful to everyone that wanted to make a small difference together with us!
Stay safe everyone!
As many of you probably expected, the ICE camp has been cancelled. This was upon recommendation of the Faculty Board and the Board and 25 committee decided that organizing a camp on 1,5m would become very difficult. As we feel we should still offer the first years an introduction to the association, the ICE committee is now working on a new plan for introductory activities during the first weeks of September.
We are sad to announce that all physical activities that were planned for this academic year are cancelled. This is due to the measures the Dutch government took on the 23rd of March, which include banning all gatherings until the 1st of June. Activities planned in June, such as the End of the Year BBQ and the Transfer GMM are cancelled for now as well; we will look at a possibility to reschedule these. We are disappointed that the association’s year ends like this, as there were almost more 40 activities yet to come, but staying healthy and fighting the corona virus has the priority.
As a study association, we still want to offer you support in these strange times. Therefore, we are looking into the possibilities of giving online educational support or organizing social online activities. Committees are encouraged to think about these and all suggestions are welcome! Besides that, suggestions on how to make the quarantine life easier are always appreciated;).
If you have any complaints or tips regarding the online lectures or tutorials, you are more than welcome to share them with us and maybe we are able to help you!
We are sorry to announce that the members' lounge will be closed until at least the 10th of April. All events until the 31st of March will be cancelled. We realize this is may be disappointing and value the efforts that have been made to realize the upcoming activities, but health and safety are our main concerns right now. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us: email@example.com . To follow the measures the university has taken, you can use Nestor.
Due to the situation regarding the Corona virus, the Board has decided to close the members' lounge tomorrow. More information about cancellation of events will follow tomorrow. As for now, you can stay updated on the measurements the University has taken on Nestor.
