 “I always think things will be harder than they are”

“I always think things will be harder than they are”

  Greed. I’m not so into things, but when I do the groceries I always come home with more than was on the list. Gluttony. I’m addicted to boxing, am always either doing it myself or watching it. I have to watch every match, even when I’m supposed to be studying. As for food, when I’m in training I eat a...

Bringing students safely to Maastricht

Bringing students safely to Maastricht

MAASTRICHT. As every year, UM students volunteer to pick up new international students that arrive at Schiphol Airport and direct them safely to Maastricht. A total of 150 students will make use of this Pick-up Service in the last weeks of August. At Maastricht Central Station, students from the International Student Network will await the newcomer...

Hangover or not: Legendary Workout

Hangover or not: Legendary Workout

MAASTRICHT. It's Friday, the fifth day of the Inkom. Most freshmen will be exhausted, but UM Sports had the guts to schedule the Legendary Work at 10.30h. And they were right. Over a hunderd fresmen joined the "body and mind mix". No high intensity training, as staffmembers told students at the entrance, but they will d...

Looking at art and collecting ball

Looking at art and collecting ball

A lot of students are sporting unique linen bags at Cultifest, held Wednesday night at the Bonnefantenmuseum. They have painted them themselves at one of the many activities going on in and around the building. Inspiration can be found at the Raymond Pettibon exhibition – A pen of all work – or the regular collection that are open to th...

Burgers and an allergy on the side

Burgers and an allergy on the side

MAASTRICHT. The girl at the first hamburger handout is suffering. Today it is about thirty degrees, which makes it not nice to have to hang your head over a hot grill. And she can’t step backwards because the hamburgers need turning around every other minute or so. But does that spoil the fun, today at the picnic in the Stadspark? Not at all....

Bouncing through the Stadspark

Bouncing through the Stadspark

MAASTRICHT. You could make your way through the Stadspark bouncing, Tuesday afternoon at the Festival. Avoiding spinning beams, playing a game of volleyball or just lazily enjoying the sun: it can all be done on a bouncing castle. What else is going on? Dancing on the tunes of Accent, the house band of student association Circumflex. For the gentle...

“I expected rain”

“I expected rain”

“I didn’t expect Europe to be so hot, I expected rain, especially in the Netherlands”, says Nga Janda (18) from Zimbabwe. She is sitting in the sun before the building of the school of Business and Economics. “I have never been in the Netherlands before. I have visited the UK, France and Ireland. I like the diversity in Maas...

Born in Seychelles

Born in Seychelles

You’re from where? Saint Charles? Is it in France?  But as 18-year old Zoë Barois draws a questioning face the reporter knows she is wrong. “Seychelles”, she repeats. “O, wow, the islands!” Just in case you have no idea where the Seychelles are located: the archipelago of 115 islands lies in the Indian Ocean, off ...

Ready, set, go!

Ready, set, go!

MAASTRICHT. A band that has both Killing in the Name by Rage Against the Machine as Super Trooper by ABBA on their set list, can rightfully call themselves all-round.  The Daredevils set the mood Monday night at the Markt, just before the official opening of the Inkom 2017. When they leave for a short break, the stage is open for the Working G...

Record number of participants for Inkom 2017

Record number of participants for Inkom 2017

MAASTRICHT. No tropical heat or dull Dutch weather, but a mild sun with a cloud here or there. Today, Monday 21 August, 2900 new students start their Maastricht Inkom - a lot more than last year (2735). It means the introduction week for freshmen is “sold out”, according to Sean Beuk, Inkom chairman. This afternoon the info market Welco...
