Welcome to CS Ubuntu 2021-2022!

Dear Ubuntu members,

After getting to see many familiar and new faces at the pub quiz this week, the 11th board is getting more and more excited about kicking off an amazing 2021!

We hope everyone is getting off to great start of the new academic year and is as excited about getting to see each other in person again this year as we are. Your new board has been hard at work talking to new students at the UIT week and study programs, and finding events which fit regulations and still allow us to see each other. Unfortunately, our board room has to remain closed for now, but as soon as regulations permit we'll be welcoming you into a newly decorated Ubuntu room at Drift!

Besides the first event we just held, we have a few more coming up soon, so further down you'll find more information on that! I also promise that next time around we'll have a more formal picture to introduce ourselves with.

Finally, you may have noticed that we have gained a new board member since the last GA, Jeroen Post, who is now acting as Secretary while Wieke has been acting as Internal Affairs until the first GA. These changes will be explained and voted upon!

Best wishes on behalf of Board 11,

Karlijn van der Loo
President CS Ubuntu 2021-2022


Pub Quiz & Monthly Drinks @ Café de Stadsgenoot
Thank you all so much for showing up to our first event of the year! We had lots of fun, despite not necessarily doing the best on the questions... (congrats to the winners by the way) and hope you had fun too. Hope to see you all at the monthly drinks again next time!

Pool Café Utrecht
On September 30th, CS Ubuntu will be hosting a pool night in Utrecht's Pool Café from 19:00-21:00 for everyone to continue reconnecting with familiar friends and meet our new association members. You can find more information on our Instagram, Facebook, and website and the sign-up form will appear there as well.

General Assembly I
It is our pleasure to invite you to CS Ubuntu's first General Assembly of the 2021/22 academic year! The GA will take place in hybrid format on October 28th so as many of us as possible can meet physically and anyone who cannot will have the option to join online. You can sign up through this link for both the in-person and online versions. This is taking place on the day of the monthly drinks so that we can follow up the GA with some drinks at Café de Stadsgenoot!


Monthly Drinks Day Change!

Important news! Due to changes in the scheduling of Café de Stadsgenoot, we will now be planning monthly drinks on the last Thursday of every month. 

Committee Sign-Ups are Open!
As of our first event, we have opened sign-ups for all committees except for the Monthly Spotlight. You can find more information in our last Instagram post and sign up at:
If you have any questions please join us online at the committee information evening to ask :)
September Monthly Spotlight: a preview:

Due to the pandemic, for a long time now, there has been some media silence around the migration issues the EU has been facing in the past decade. However, recent developments in Afghanistan raise new questions about how to approach the (expected) refugees and what policy should be deemed appropriate.
This provides an opportunity to take a look at EU migration policy today, which is increasingly characterized by so-called migrant pushbacks.
