USA Nijmegen has eleven committees; the Lustrum Committee, the Activities Committee, the Academic Committee, Party Committee, Cooking Committee, Travel Committee, PR Committee, Orientation Committee, First Years Committee, The Issue, and the Finance Committee and two joint committees with G.A.G. – Great Anglo-Saxon Gobblers, the Introduction Committee and the Study Committee.
Lustrum Committee (LustrumCo)
Every five years, we celebrate the birthday of the association and call this a Lustrum year! This year we are celebrating USA Nijmegen’s 20th birthday, with the 20th Board. This means that this year, we have a Lustrum Committee. They work together to organize extra fun events to celebrate the 20th year, and they organise a Lustrum Week (dates TBA)! They also made the beautiful merchandise of this year! (which you should all be getting soon)
Members: Lisette Brussee (Co-Head), Nikki van den Bogaard (Co-Head), Bob Frantzen, David van Gool, Lonneke Kuitert, Marit Stegeman, Tycho van der Bruggen
Activity Committee (AcCo)
This year all of USA Nijmegen’s activities will be in our capable hands. We will be responsible for certain activities that are less focused on academia. However, no less enjoyable, for instance, the Pub Quiz, Drinks, and other events that you think might be interesting! We’ll try and organize the best informal activities so that your year will be unforgettable! If you might have suggestions regarding a fun activity, then mail us!
Members: Jorik Schuirink (Chair), Iris van den Oever, Joris van de Koevering, Jente Groot
Academic Committee (AcaCo)
Starting this year, we’ve split the academic activities from the informal ones, so the Movie Night, Pub Lectures, Day Lectures, and other academically related activities will be hosted by this very special committee. For some of the activities, we ask teachers to come and give an interesting lecture or show their favorite movie!
Members: Mila Petrovic (Chair), Femke van Lieshout.
Party Committee (PartyCo)
We are proud to present to you, USA Nijmegen’s Party Committee! This year we will be responsible for organizing awesome parties and unforgettable nights. Not only do we come up with themes, make playlists, and decorate our awesome pub, we are also present at every USA party. So if you ever want to party with us, just come to one of our events! Feel free to contact us with questions or suggestions for an amazing theme for one of our parties.
Members: Jorik Schuirink (Chair), Ana Nechita, Tycho van den Bruggen, Julia Wenceniak, Floor Heldens
Cooking Committee (CoCo)
Once upon a time, there was a member of USA Nijmegen who dreamed of something beautiful, something she just couldn’t shake… It was a dream of a room full of people, but not any room she had seen before. This one had a table, filled with the most delicious meals she had ever seen. Every person at that table was wearing beautiful merchandise. Soon, it became obvious to her that these were all members of USA Nijmegen. She then realized that this was the future we needed… food and love. This, my friends, is how USA Nijmegen’s Cooking Committee came into being. And still, even this year in every period, we organize and cook a lovely dinner for about 40 members, so hopefully, we’ll see you there next time!
Much (meat) loaf!
Members: Jorik Schuirink (Head), Julian Krol, Eva Knol, Sterre Alberts, Sam van Nijhuis, Lola Jetten, Dana de Vetten.

Travel Committee (TravelCo)
At USA Nijmegen, we all love to travel. And we are here to help you with that! This year, USA Nijmegen will bring you to some fabulous destination somewhere in the United States. The Travel Committee will work together with some of the lecturers this year, to set a destination, buy the tickets, create a travel plan and think of all the awesome things we can do! As always, it is undoubtedly going to be a breathtaking, wonderful, and above all crazy time full of cultural, academic, and fun activities!
Members: Iris de Otter (Head), Lonneke Kuitert, Iris van den Oever, Zoë Strik, Joris van de Koevering, Julian Krol.
PR Committee (PRCo)
An important part of our committee is of course our social media! You can always see us shine on our Instagram, in your e-mailbox, or on this very website. To help design and photoshop most of the things we put out there, we have our PR Committee!
Members: Tim van Zomeren (Head)
First Years Committee (FiCo)
As a first-year student, starting your time at Radboud can be a bit overwhelming or even scary at first. Thankfully, the First Years Committee can give everyone a warm welcome to Nijmegen! The First Years Committee organizes activities and events for Freshmen, so everyone can have a great start to what is hopefully going to be a wonderful life as a student!
Members: Tycho van den Bruggen, Juul Langenhuijsen, Dana de Vetten
Study Committee (StuCo)
Of course, university life isn’t all fun and games. We all have to study sometime (much as we’d like to deny it). This is where the Study Committee comes into play. University isn’t always easy: problems, hiccups, and questions come to the best of us. Don’t hesitate — just ask. We aim to help solve your study-related issues as best we can.
For example, every year has its share of troublesome courses. You study and study but you can’t make heads or tails of it — trust me, we know. For those courses, we will arrange an extra session outside of the curriculum, taught by a student or a professor. But even if you’re all alone in the dark, we’ll figure something out for you. Just make yourself heard!
The Study Committee: We can’t study for you, but we are studying with you.
Members: Mila Petrovic (Head), Ana Nechita
The Issue Committee
The members of The Issue Committee provide you with a fresh and new Issue four times a year. If you’d like to write an article, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. To read the online versions of previous Issues click on the Issue button above.
Members: Yasmila Rizk (Co-Head), Jorik Schuirink (Co-Head), Lieke van Well, Marit Stegeman, Sterre Alberts, Sam van Nijhuis, Guus Houben, Michiel de Bruin, Tim van Zomeren (Design).
The Finance Committee has the task of checking the finances of USA Nijmegen and advising the members’ assembly on whether the board is doing a good job when it comes to finances!
Members: Jeroen Cuijpers, Lin Acampo
