Entrepreneurship and parties: it's Jasper's week!

This week started after a short night. My house Probitas an alliance with four other mixed houses in the city. Twice a year, we organize the Mixed Houses Drink together and we hosted the tenth edition. It lasted until dawn, while I was trying to sleep one floor above it.

We are looking for SUN committee members!

Do you know how to code? We're recruiting for the SUN development team!
If you're part of a student association, you probably recognize the following problem: some members built the website years ago, but have graduated since. The website is getting old now, but no one really knows how the code works anymore. Or your association bought an accounting system that just doesn't work well. Or worse: your association still uses Excel for their membership administration. We think there should be a better option. We want to develop a full-fledged ICT system for all the 130+ student organizations in Twente, and we want to do this together with the UT's programming talent.

Internationalization and the Open Days: it's Rose's week!

This week, I have been busy with the internationalization of the UT. I had a meeting with the members of UniTe, which is the umbrella organization for international associations. It was a productive meeting and everyone was really enthusiastic about the Global Lounge. Our plans are starting to take shape and in the coming months, we will further work on them. For example, in 2016 we want to organize a country presentation every two weeks. I want to involve the International Office, so that they can inform you about things like visa and vaccines for that country. If you are just as enthusiastic as us, feel free to drop a message if you want to join our discussions.

Debating with the minister and cooking with the SU: it's Laura's week!

Last Friday night, the Student Union community (board, committees, employees) had their annual community activity. We went to De Kookklas for a cooking workshop. Everytime I meet chef Don Waslander, I am flabbergasted by his enthusiasm! Afterwards, we went to Audentis for a party until dawn.
