This year’s book clubs will take place every third monday of the month, and the date of the first book club of this year has thus been set: the 20th of October. This month, Aline and Esmé will take you with them on a journey through the United States in Jack Kerouac’s iconic novel On The Road. The meeting will start at 19:00 at the canteen of the Harmony building, and coffee and tea will be provided.
Do not hesitate a single moment longer and run to the library/local bookshop and get yourself a copy! Happy reading and see you on the 20th of October!
The year has started, and that means that a lot of new students have joined us!
To give all the new students a chance to get to know each other, we had a great introduction day on August 28.

Every year, NUTS organises a trip to the United Kingdom or Ireland. Places we visited in previous years include Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dublin. The question remains, where to next?
You can play a part in this by applying for the Travel Committee! The Travel Committee offers a great opportunity for students who like to travel and would like to play an active role in organising another fantastic trip abroad. If you are interested, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!

Read here what Natasha Witto wrote about last year’s comedy show Would they lie to you in her column:
Would They Lie to You?
Some of you might be familiar with the show ‘Would I Lie to You?’ by BBC. Well that night (28/5), the ‘Stranger Things Have Happened’ and nuts present the audience ‘Would They Lie to You?’.
I’ve been here since September and ‘Stranger Things Have Happened’ comedy group has always brighten my days. I still remember them performing during the welcoming ceremony day, making it different than other university’s introduction.
This time, once I heard they are going to perform I reserved a ticket right away. In addition, two highly respected professor from RuG is going to perform as the competing team captains; John Flood and Hans.
How does the show work?
There are two competing teams (plus the audience) in the show. Each member will tell his story that might be true. The audience and the rival team have to decide whether it is a lie or not. If either guessed correctly, a point is rewarded. It was really tricky since most of the stories are just bizarre. Who would ever guess that John Flood had slept in the Arc Bishop’s bed? It was even more interesting when we have to guess whose story the team was telling. For instance, all of them admitted they were in a gang, but only one was actually telling the truth.
After two halves of full laugh I went home with my friend, feeling really lighten up. That night, I learnt a lot of strange facts. However, was that all? Definitely not, because stranger things have happened in this town.
The summer break is nearing its conclusion. It is sad, but it is true. Allow us to brighten up your day, as we can announce that the Studystore webshop has officially been opened!
From now on, NUTS members can order their books through our new Studysture webshop with a 20% discount! Just click on the Studystore button in the top menu and select the books from your respective reading list.
Enjoy the last remaining (or should I say raining) days of summer and see you all soon!
