Dies Week: Political History Tour

Did you know that Dwight Eisenhower has slept in the Hotel des Indes? I’m sure you didn’t! The tour on November 5 will give you many more fun facts like this about the political history of The Hague and you never know when this knowledge might come in useful (perhaps at a trivia night?). Register at spilplaats.nl for a funny and interesting 1.30 hour as part of our birth week celebration! It will start at 13:30 in front of Wijnhaven and will go to about 15:00. You can sign up here

 

 

Apply for the Long Trip or SPIL Weekend committee

Would you like to become (even) more active within SPIL? Do you want to be part of organising the most large-scale trip SPIL has to offer - a two week trip to a destination outside of Europe - towards the end of this uni year with the Long Trip committee? Or maybe you would like to do something more low key, such as organizing a fun and informal weekend for all members in the association with the SPIL-weekend committee? If you want to apply to these committees, you can do that here

The Long Trip: as the name suggests it, a longer trip than the short trip, this trip will be two weeks long and outside of Europe. Aside from that, it is fairly similar to the short trip: you will arrange meetings with members of parliament, visit ministries and embassies, talk to NGO’s and enjoy fun activities

SPIL Weekend: every year the SPIL hosts a SPIL-weekend; this is a weekend filled with informal activities for every SPIL’er. With your committee you will find a location, organize activities, organize a night out and organize a dinner.

Dies Week: Beer Cantus

There will also be a beercantus during the SPIL’s birthweek! An evening filled with amazing songs to sing along with and lots and lots of beer to enjoy. It’s a real Dutch student tradition, but with an international twist. During this evening there will be a praesidium that will guide the evening and make sure everyone sings their heart out. It will take place on Wednesday the 6th of November, from 21.00h. The SSR venue in Leiden will be filled with SPIL’ers singing along to the best songs and finishing the songs with all empty glasses!

A Praesidium will lead the way during this exciting evening. The Dies committee is thrilled to be the first committee in SPIL history to organize a Cantus for her members. We are looking forward to seeing you all on this memorable evening! You can sign up here!

 

Short Trip: Budapest

The destination of the short trip has finally been announced! After the retake exams in January we will be traveling to Budapest in Hungary. Been before? This time you will be able to discover a whole new side of the city, namely its political one. We will be leaving Tuesday evening the 28th of January and will return on Sunday February 2nd. Are you coming? 

If you are interested then write a motivation letter where you mention why you would like to join. Please include the following in your letter (it should not exceed two pages):

  • Why you would like to join this SPIL trip
  • Why you would like to travel to Budapest
  • An overview of its current political situation 
  • A creative idea for a politics related activity and a cultural activity that can be part of the trip program

Please turn in your letter in on paper (printed 3 times) in the common room in Leiden or The Hague on October 30th, 31st or November 1st!
