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, our world-famous annual Thanksgiving dinner, 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: Iris van den Oever (Head), Jente Groot, Jiska Dielen, Axel van der Leij, Farah de Koning.
Academic Committee (AcaCo)
The Academic Committee exists to host informal academic activities, 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! The perfect balance of fun, yet educational activities for our study association.
Members: Juul Langenhuijsen (Head), Juul Krol, Sam van Nijhuis, Zoë Strik.
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 (Head), Pál Berendi, Alexandre Aimbre, Eva Knol, Floor Heldens.
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 Europe (stay tuned!). The Travel Committee will work as best it can, with some wonderful members in tow, 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: Lonneke Kuitert (Head), Dana de Vetten, Juul Krol, Boris Triepels, Luca Zwanenburg, Tess ten Hoopen, Axel van der Leij.
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: Jorik Schuirink (Head), Els Eijkhoudt.
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: Farah de Koning, Tess ten Hoopen, Zoë Robijn.
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: Juul Langenhuijsen, Guus Houbens.
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: Jorik Schuirink (Head & Design), Floor Heldens, Axel van der Leij, Guus Houbens.
Young Opinionated Novelists Committee (YONCo)
The YONCo is a committee dedicated to connecting the members of USA Nijmegen to the amazing world of literature by hosting creative activities such as movie nights, and linking them to certain books! Thanks to our amazing partnership with Roelants, our members can even get discounts on copies of the required books in order to help them prepare for the activities organized by this explosively creative committee.
Members: Zoë Strik (Chair), Juul Langenhuijsen, Sam van Nijhuis, Michaela Vladimírová.
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: Lin Acampo, Mirjam Piepot, Jorik Schuirink.
