Workshop Day

Moving to a new country can be difficult… but we’re here to help! If you’re confused about opening your Dutch bank account or are wondering what a “DigiD” is, Globalcie’s Workshop Day is perfect for you.

Globalcie is a committee that aims to help specifically international students to transition smoothly into their new student life as well as ensure their uptake to our student association.

Globalcie’s first activity this year is the Workshop that is intended for the newcomers in Amsterdam that may need some help while getting used to this cosy city. The workshop will cover many points such as getting a BSN, finding a GP, opening a Dutch bank account, health insurance, public transport and many more! If you’re slightly overwhelmed with everything, feel free to sign up!
The workshop will be on the 8th of September at 15.30!

First Year Groups

Dear first years,

Welcome to the thrilling start of your university journey, where a brand new chapter awaits each and every one of you! Some of you have already met new people during the Introduction week, but some did not have that chance yet. Allow us to introduce you to the concept of first-year groups!

Picture this: you’ll be placed into a group with other first-years, guided by enthusiastic mentors that will let you experience the joys that Gyrinus natans has to offer. You can visit activities, social drinks and get familiar to the VU with your group. Need advice on your studies? Look no further, as your mentors are also there to support you in all academic matters.

In this way, it will be easier for you to meet new people within your own study and of course have some fun together!

Interested? Sign-up here:

Last Stelling Eve

Dear borrelaars,

Past year is one with ups and downs. We had our fair share of broken arms, hearts and sinks, as well as the death of the pride of gyrinus: hamster Bob. But we also had beautifull moments. Our gorgeous Stelling can stay open for longer, we have the addition of the Budelse Bieren Borrel and we’re looking forward to a new exciting introduction. To forget the bad and celebrate the good, we have to end this year with a banger.

During the evening a delicious Indonesian rice table will be served. It is prepared by our very own old gyrini and VU employees. You definitely don’t want to miss this, so an eye on the socials for the sign-up link! 

We look forward to seeing you there!

Feedback Form Activities

Dear Gyrini,

As you might have noticed, we are currently working with a feedback form for the activities of Gyrinus natans. Every time you visit an activity and have any imput, we are eager to hear it! In this way we can continuously improve the activities and thereby our beloved association.

Budels Beer Borrel

Dear Gyrini,

The last couple of years, the Amsterdam beer borrel has been a staple borrel in the last month of the academic year. However, this year, because of the probable closing of the Tegenstelling in half a year, and to celebrate our more than 30-year collaboration with the Budels brewery, The Alcoholaat decided to rename this borrel to the Budels Beer Borrel (BBB). However, unlike the BBB (BockBeerBorrel) at the beginning of the academic year, we will be serving you a nice selection of fresh summer- like Budels beers that fit the season. These beers will be announced in the next couple of days, and you will be able to try them all with a special Stellingcard! We hope to see you all on the 16th of June at the Tegenstelling!

With Love,

the BBB- team and the rest of the Alcoholaat

The Cocktail Borrel

All ladies assemble! On the 14th of June the Cocktailborrel will take place in the Tegenstelling.
During this amazing evening, all Gyrinus women will take care of the entire borrel. Amazing cocktails will be served (a secret for now which), heavy shots will be poured and of course delicious pink food will be provided! We ask all women to DRESS TO IMPRESS by wearing their best cocktail dress (or something..). All men are welcome as well 🙂
Around 20:00 all nominees for Mr. Gyrinus will return (we hope) after which we will vote for the winner. After announcing the winner, a party will break loose until 23:00!
