Update from the Board

Dear Members,

As September marks the end of summer, we’ve come to a time of significant shifts. The sunshine of summer has been replaced by the showers of autumn. Students both fresh and familiar trickle to the lecture halls of Utrecht University as classes and courses kick off. Meanwhile, your new CS Ubuntu board has been working incredibly hard behind the scenes to put everything in place for an unforgettable year.      

The most visible effort is the new and improved logo, designed by Monique Wols,  which we hope you like as much as we do. At the After Summer Drinks, where summer stories were exchanged, the first CS Ubuntu stickers were handed out with the promise that the most original sticking locations will be rewarded with a free drink, this promise will continue throughout the year, so happy sticking! Furthermore, CS Ubuntu has been spotted throughout the city at the UIT (Utrecht Introduction Time) and the Orientation Day, where we’ve had the privilege of meeting many enthusiastic people and new members, and had a lot of fun!
This month will be one of many new faces, an updated boardroom, and the start of a year of which I can't put into words how excited we are to finally see take off. If you want to be a part of this, please remember to (re-)register as a member, or scroll down for our diverse Upcoming Activities and simply stop by. We look forward to seeing you there!

Wishing you all a great start of the academic year,

On behalf of the board,

Anouk Pietersen

President CS Ubuntu 2017-2018

Upcoming CS Ubuntu Events


11 June, Monthly Drinks + Committee Info Evening

Café de Stadsgenoot at 21:00
Our first Monthly Drinks after the summer holidays is coming up! An excellent opportunity to celebrate the start of the new school year and to promote the formation of our committees. On this evening we will not only share a drink (or two, or five) but also explain the CS Ubuntu committees and answer all the questions you have.

We hope to see you there!!

19 September, UGlobe Screening of No Place for a Rebel

- UU students only -

Join us for the UGlobe screening of the documentary No Place for a Rebel, directed, among others, by a Conflict Studies & Human Rights alumna. Drinks at our local bar afterwards! "No Place for a Rebel bears witness to the grim reality of a former rebel who tries to break the mold after his return to civil society. The film is an intimate account, a journey into Opono’s world, complicated by the trauma that comes as much from being silenced in the present as from a life shattered by violence. Yet above all, the film shows the courageous attempt of a human being to reshape his fate.”

Tuesday, September 19th - 19:15 @ Janskerkhof 2-3

27 September, International Food Evening

Do you like food? So do we! Since we have members from all over the world, CS Ubuntu international food evenings have become a classic favorite. Everyone brings a dish from their home country and it gets served as a buffet in our favorite bar. This is a great opportunity to try foreign cuisine, exchange experiences with members from other cultures, and gain some new perspectives.

Wednesday September 27th - 19:00 @ T.B.A.

A Recap of Last Month's Events

30 August, After Summer Drinks

On the 30th of August, we had a small get together at café de Stadsgenoot where we could update each other about the summer break. Different from before, we have arranged a permanent discount for CS Ubuntu members of 10% on drinks at café de Stadsgenoot. You can now get it when showing your CS Ubuntu Member card! Furthermore, we had the chance to present our new logo this evening. We hope you like it and to see you all the following Monthly Drinks!
