Dear members and visitors,
The first half of this academic year has almost passed, time for period number 3! We hope everybody has had a great second period and an even better winter holiday. The board is definitely looking forward to the coming year and you all probably too!
We can look back at a successful first half of this academic year, with lots of lovely activities! To start off, we had the busiest Kick-off party in year, contributing to the immense amount of first-year students becoming active in one of our many committees!
Also, 60 of the Bachelor freshman’s went to on weekend together, getting to know each other even better, but mainly having a very enjoyable weekend.
This year we have, already, organised several career related events. For BSc students, but mainly for (international) MSc students. There has been a lecture by Ecolab, a LinkedIN training by Agrojobs, 2 evenings on studying abroad/internships and an excursion to DSM Delft. Next period among other, there will be a Vacancy and CV training evening by DUPP.
The Department Drinks have also been a great success so far this year. With the first drink taking place in Axis-Z, the new Food Science/Agro Technology building, being a first. The second Department Drink was organised in the new general building on the Campus, the Orion. This drink was combined with the yearly BSc and MSc Thesis Market and was, as expected, extremely busy and a great success. The Kookcie prepared lovely home-made snacks for this event and also organised their first own activity, the “Running Diner”. Appetizer, main course and dessert all at different locations throughout Wageningen, a new but very successful initiative.
The Activicie, as a follow-up to their Karaoke evening, managed to organise two more epic parties! Both the Halloween Party and Sintershaken were, of course, amazing and promising for what is still coming!
On behalf of the entire NA board, good luck in the future academic periods and make sure to visit many of our activities for the much needed relaxation and added value to your study!
