Helloo borrellovers,

Time flies when you’re having fun! It was a year of Gyrinus filled with fun activities, great borrels, fun citytrips, fantastic parties, unforgettable specialbeer borrels and lots more! Unfortunately, with (proud) tears in our eyes we are announcing that it is time for the LSA.. But don’t be sad because this promises to be a legendary last borrel that you do not want to miss out on! The LSA will take place on the 4th of July from 5pm to 12 midnight in the Tegenstelling @WN-building. Of course we won’t leave you with an empty stomach because the lovely employees of the VU are going to prepare an amazing complete Indonesian rice table for you! If you’re thinking, wow I should not miss this event?? That’s right!! So don’t forget to invite all your friends, because you would not want them to miss this either. Make sure to sign up via the link down below and we will see eachother the 4th of July!!

Merchandise Sale

This study year is almost over and the summer holidays are coming close! Do you think the Gyrinus pants and sweater are the perfect vacation gear? Then come to our merchandise sale on the 20th of June at the Tegenstelling! Don’t forget to bring cash!

Gyrinus Sports Tournament

OMGGG it is that time of the year again …. The annual committee tournament! If you always wanted to prove that your committee is the best, this is the moment! Go battle with the other committees and crush them. Can the Alcoholaat even do something other than drink beer? Probably not. Does the ITcie have talents other than just behind the screen? We doubt it. Prove us wrong and show us what you are worth.

Friday, June 15, from 5 pm this legendary battle will take place on the campus of the VU. Send an email to the sportcie if you want to participate with your committee: ln.su1537795681niryg1537795681@eict1537795681rops1537795681

Your gut has a mind of its own

Dear members of Gyrinus,

The end of the academic year is already in sight! This means that the summer holiday is coming again! Yeah, nice! But have you already got your ‘summer body’ or did you enjoy yourself in the Stelling, which caused you’ve got overfed? How aware have you actually dealt with your diet (and therefore also digestion)? Maybe not that much, maybe you did. Undoubtedly the upcoming lecture will help you.

This last lecture of the academic year will be about nutrition and digestion, with the following subject: Your gut has a mind of its own. Peter Klaren will tell an hour about things like: Getting to know the man with the hole in his stomach. See how Pavlov missed the boat and how the first vivisections led to the first animal legislation. In short, enough different but certainly fascinating subjects.

Although the title is given in English, the lecture will be given in Dutch. We look forward to seeing you June the 6th! And afterwards we have a nice meal of course 😉

When? 6th of June
Where? WN-M143
What time? 16:00 till 17:00
Everyone is welcome!
