Student association Koko scores well among foreign students. They registered 29 new non-Dutch members this year (against 25 last year, and ten in 2008). The number is not definite, as Koko still has to inaugurate its new members. The counter stopped at eleven for Saurus, at eight for Circumflex and five for Tragos.
Koko received a total of 191 (again provisional) applications for membership. Saurus had 95 students participate in the main introduction and thirty in the after-intro. Circumflex welcomed 115 new members and has thirty spaces for the after-intro. Tragos received 105 newcomers.
The student associations grew less than in previous years (2009: 711, 2010: 536). “There are a lot of foreign and master’s students,” says Tragos chairman Joshua de Kroes. “They usually do not join an association.”
