Re-routing for cyclists on Kennedy Bridge

Re-routing for cyclists on Kennedy Bridge

MAASTRICHT. In the next few months, work will be carried out on an important arterial road in Maastricht: the Kennedy Bridge. Mopeds and cyclists – including students and members of staff, travelling from the faculties in Randwyck to the city centre – will experience inconvenience. They will be re-routed halfway along the bridge because...

Sore spot

Sore spot

Richard (26): “I can’t take criticism. If someone makes comments on my behaviour or achievements, I go on the defence. This takes a lot of energy and I don’t make many friends that way. Ingrid: If a remark made by someone else can throw you off balance so easily, then that has something to do with your past. At such a moment, y...

Tutors to sit exams first

Tutors to sit exams first

MAASTRICHT. To improve the quality of exams, the School of Business and Economics (SBE) has come up with a novel measure: before students sit an exam, the tutor who developed it should first have a fellow tutor take the exam. Depending on the mark obtained, the exam questions will then be critically evaluated.
The Greek burger in crisis

The Greek burger in crisis

This time I find myself dining out with a plastic tray, cup and no cutlery. What is it about burgers that makes them so ‘hot’ right now? As Alex and Dorina, the owners of Hamburgeria, claim on their website, “finding a proper burger that is not a sticky, full of sauce fast-food product is difficult”. My definition of a prope...

“You have to join the Ba’ath party in tenth grade”

MAASTRICHT. "Refugees don’t exist. There are only people blown away, people blown by the wind all over the world." With this poem, the drama group Het Geluid closed the Sphinx debate on Thursday 10 September in De Brandweer. Over the course of the evening the audience had listened to fascinating anecdotes about life in a dictator...
Tom Dumoulin: Near Vuelta winner and would-be UM icon

Tom Dumoulin: Near Vuelta winner and would-be UM icon

MAASTRICHT. He was breathtakingly close to winning the Tour of Spain. And if the 24-year-old Maastricht native had managed it, it wouldn’t have mattered whether Maastricht University was able to flaunt its own student-cum-champion cyclist.
Give refugees opportunity for a meaningful stay

Give refugees opportunity for a meaningful stay

NETHERLANDS/MAASTRICHT. Six Dutch academics, including the Maastricht professor Wiebe Bijker and Amsterdam political scientist Rob Hagendijk, have started a petition urging for more refugees to be absorbed as students or visiting researchers in higher education. “Everyone wants to help. Our idea is: do something you’re good at. As unive...
Watching series

Watching series

Ruth (23): “I love watching series. Homeland, Breaking Bad, Lost, I have seen them all. Sometimes I even watch several episodes in one evening, because I just can’t stop. Do I have a problem? Ingrid: Watching series is popular. I notice that at my work, where they often talk about the umpteenth episode of the so-manieth season of a s...

Sleeping in a hostel due to lack of suitable rooms

Sleeping in a hostel due to lack of suitable rooms

MAASTRICHT. There are dozens of, mainly foreign, students who cannot find a suitable room in Maastricht. True, there is not a lot on offer, certainly not in the city centre. Belgium? Rather not, too much administrative red tape, they say. Stayokay, the hostel on the Maasboulevard, is doing well due to this student accommodation shortage: students h...
Would you take your friend to Mes Amis?

Would you take your friend to Mes Amis?

Emerging from the suffocating outside music last Friday evening (I guess it was from the Bruisfestival), I arrived at the Mes Amis wine restaurant located on Tongersestraat. After reading several reviews on Trip Advisor, I was keen to experience for myself whether the restaurant is just a ‘fashion choice’ or a truly intriguing dining ex...
