MAASTRICHT. A lecturer at the School of Business and Economics made his debut on national television just after 2000, in a controversial sex programme, surrounded by beautiful naked women in a bubble bath. Much earlier, in the first years of the university, a furious dean of Medicine switched off the lights during a meeting and left. A jurist who made his first visit to Maastricht in 1981 and saw the red Maastricht flags, thought that the communists gathered for a meeting. Observant asked employees for anecdotes from Maastricht University’s forty-year-old history. Every bit of this is true. So the storytellers say.
