The Board

Amsterdam Light Festival Walk

Dear Gyrini,
The weather has turned cold, and Christmas is around the corner; winter is coming! The perfect season for another Wintersportcie activity. When we think of winter we think of winter sport obviously, but we also think of being with friends, we think of Glühwein, and beautiful lights. What better way to combine this than by walking the Amsterdam Light Festival together?! For only 6 euros the Wintersportcie will provide you with some snacks and a drink to make sure you are well prepared for this beautiful trip through the centre of Amsterdam. So, grab your cosy sweater, a (gyrinus) hat and some warm gloves, and join us on Thursday the 12th of January! We will start at 19:30 and the starting point will be announced later.

Meet the Masters!

Dear Gyrini,

Do you want to get rid of the stress for the time that comes after your bachelor? Come to the meet the masters day and meet different masters. You can ask them anything and they can tell you all about their experiences with choosing a master’s degree.

The masters will be present in the Tegenstelling on December 14 from 5 PM. And the best of this day, you are also invited! So we hope to see you then, so that you get a better idea of the possible masters and perhaps, after this, you know exactly what the future has in store for you. 

The Onderwijscie


Dear Gyrini,

It’s that time of year again! An evening filled with pepernoten and other candies, ‘tea’ and poems, and maybe even the big man himself 👀. And keep in mind, Sinterklaas knows all😉. It will be held on 7th of December at the Tegenstelling from 17:00 until 22:00! See you there!
