The deadline for committee registrations has passed. Later this year, registrations for the Freshmen Weekend Committee and the SPIL Weekend Committee will open.
Committees are a key part of the operation of any student association, and the SPIL is no different. The committees that the SPIL offers can give you the opportunity to experience something completely new, or participate in an area that you are already passionate about. There is also variety of ways that you can participate in your area of interest, from organising activities and events, to writing for a magazine, to working as part of an international group. As you can see committees encompass a wide range of possibilities for ways students to get involved. Register here!
The exams of the fourth block are almost done and this has to be celebrated in a special way. The first day after the exams the SPIL will go to the Efteling, a famous fantasy themed amusement park in Kaatsheuvel. You will have the opportunity to spend your day in this magical park for only 15 euros (in stead of the regular price of 40 euros).
