After hours and hours of interviews, we have found them: the NUTS Board 2019-2020! But who will it be…
Join us on the 21st of May to find out and to start off their time on the NUTS Board with a bang!
We hope to see you all there!
The NUTS (Candidate) Board
*Do note that time and place are still to be confirmed*
Committee applications are now open!
NUTS has four committees, all focused on specific events. We have the Activity Committee, that organizes several events throughout the year. These activities are mostly focused on the social aspect of the association, which means that they are great opportunities to get to know your fellow students! These activities range from pub crawls to movie night, and from Christmas dinners to paintball.
Next up is our Pub Quiz Committee. They organize the monthly pub quiz, which is held on the first Tuesday of each month. Some pub quizzes have specific themes, whilst other times they are focused on random knowledge, and each month you can win an awesome prize! As part of the Pub Quiz Committee, you are part of one of NUTS’s oldest traditions!
Then there is the Travel Committee, that is in charge of the annual NUTS trip. These trips take place after the last exam period, and previous trips brought us to Manchester, London, Newcastle and Dublin. As part of this committee, you have the chance to explore and evolve your organizational and communicative skills, which will result in one of the best trips of your life!
Last but definitely not least, we have the Intro Committee. They help the board to plan the intro camp for the first-years in September. This is an important way for new students to get to know each other and NUTS. This committee is not just responsible for the organization of the camp, but for, for many, the first impression of the association.
Check out the file below for more information on the committees!

Since we’re all living hectic student lives, we figured we could all do with some peace and quiet, so we’re going to the Groninger Museum! They currently have a number of exhibitions on display, including 100 Years of Women’s Suffrage and 100 Year of Bauhaus Textiles. For all exhibitions, check out this link: https://www.groningermuseum.nl/en/art/exhibitions
Admission is free, but do bring your student card!
When: 24 May
Where: Groninger Museum,
It’s the first Monday of the month, so you know what that means: a new newsletter! This month you get to meet our amazing Travel Committee! They’re in charge of our trip to Edinburgh this July, and they’re doing a great job
There is still one spot left for our trip to Edinburgh, so if you want to join, contact firstname.lastname@example.org!
It’s almost that time of the year: time for the Board Pub Quiz! We have decided to make it a themed one, and figured there is one topic we are all experts on: procrastinating (hence this event going online 3 days late).
We’ve all been there: 4 essays due, 3 exams just around the corner, work, chores, whatever, but nothing is happening. For some reason it just seems more important to spend so much time scheduling everything that there is no time left to actually do things. Also, it is absolutely essential to rewatch all seasons of Game of Thrones to make sure you’re ready for next week’s episode.
After this month’s pub quiz, we will make sure we’re all pros at procrastinating!
When: 14 May 2019
Where: Café The Crown
This event is free for members and €2.50 for non-members
