Eurekaweekcommittee 2017

   De Eurekaweekcommittee of 2017 consists of:

  • Laurens Coumou 
    Chairman 
    Study: Master Organisational Change & Consulting 

    "In previous Eurekaweeks I’ve done a lot of different things. From participating to guiding, from promoting both as a student and a study association, I was there. This interest in the Eurekaweek grew every year. Being part of the board was the last step!

    When I think of the Eurekaweek I see the possibility for every participant to give a new impression of him/herself. That is such an interesting thing to see! People who were defined by labels can start over during the Eurekaweek. It gives me a lot of energy to see participants can be themselves in their new environment!"

  • Ruben Rekers 
    Treasurer 
    Study: Mr. drs. Economics and Law 

    "In previous Eurekaweeks I was a guide for a super diverse group of pre-master and master students and last I year I had a blast as a crew member meeting so many new people and seeing the behind the scenes of such a huge organisation. 

    When I think of the Eurekaweek I see a highly energetic group of new students having the time of their lives enjoying all the parties all over Rotterdam, including unique events like the Cantus and the Night of the Songs, but also students laying their foundation for their academic career and their future social lives, by meeting their study mates and signing up to associations."

  • Tessa Boon 
    Acquisition 
    Study: International Bachelor Communication and Media

    "During previous editions of the Eurekaweek, I first participated as a student, a year later I became a guide, and last year I volunteered for my student sports association.

    When I think of the Eurekaweek, I think of all good memories I made with my group, the guides, and my fellow first year students. For me, the Eurekaweek was the perfect way to discover student life in Rotterdam."

  • Mirte Koutstaal
    Acquisition 
    Study: International Business Administration 

    "In previous Eurekaweeks I have been a participant and a guide

    When I think of the Eurekaweek, I think about a week where you have the chance to get acquainted with the many opportunities of your life as a student. The best experience was Night of the songs, since this is the last night together with your group: You will sing together and look back at an amazing week!"

  • Vera Batelaan
    Internal Affairs 
    Study: International Bachelor Communication and Media

    "In previous Eurekaweeks I have been a participant and a guide. During these weeks I gained so many valuable new experiences. This makes it very interesting to now be part of the Eurekaweek Board and see what it is actually like to organize such a big event!

    When I think of the Eurekaweek I think about so many different impressions. Everything that is part of the student life in Rotterdam is showed during the Eurekaweek making it such a diverse week. For me, the Eurekaweek is the perfect kick-off of your student life through which you get to know the city, the campus and all the associations at once!"

  • Magomed Aliev
    Participants & Guides 
    Study: International Bachelor Economics and Business Economics  

    "In previous Eurekaweeks I have been a participant and twice a guide. Back in 2013 was the first time I participated. I had so much fun that I became a guide in 2014 and 2016. That last time was honestly the best Eurekaweek experience I had ever had! This inspired me to apply to the Eurekaweek Board.

    When I think of the Eurekaweek I think of the amazing memories you make. I think of the participant that arrives shyly at De Doelen, of that same participant who then shamelessly “sings” along at the cantus and who, at the end of the week, enters his student life full of new-gained confidence and excitement. That is what the Eurekaweek means for me!"

  • Loek Wijnhoven
    Promotion & Communication 
    Study: Master in Marketing Management 

    "In previous Eurekaweeks I have been a participant and crew. Both experiences inspired me to organize this week myself.

    When I think of the Eurekaweek I think off the people I met during my first Eurekaweek. Great friendships were born back then and these people still play a very important role in my life." 

  • Lotte Rockx 
    Functie: Events & logistics 
    Study: International Bachelor Communication and Media

    "In previous Eurekaweeks I have been a participant, a guide and crew.

    When I think of the Eurekaweek, I see countless happy new students who are exploring our amazing city and make friends for life during the best events!"
