4) Robyn Beekman

Awater, Eureka, Orca
Focus: career prospects

Robin is een tweedejaars Nederlandse Taal & Cultuur student en eerstejaars bij Humanities Honours. Ze is dan ook lid van maar liefst twee studieverenigingen: Awater en Eureka. Hier zit ze in vijf commissies, dus van een vergadering hier en daar is ze niet vies. Na vol in het commissieleven te hebben gezeten, wil ze zich nu helemaal in gaan zetten voor jullie, de studenten Geesteswetenschappen van de Universiteit Utrecht. In haar vrije tijd roeit ze en doet ze aan racefietsen, dus ze kan ook de sportende (roeiende) student vertegenwoordigen. Momenteel is ze voor Honours bezig met een onderzoek naar de toekomstgerichtheid van het onderwijs. Ze is van mening dat hier nog veel aan te verbeteren valt en wil zich hier dan ook onder andere voor gaan inzetten in de faculteitsraad. Naast dit thema, heeft Robyn over alles wel een mening en kijkt ze kritisch naar alles wat ze op haar bordje krijgt. Een duizendpoot dus, en een goede aanwinst voor de Faculteitsraad!

5) Wessel van Wijngaarden

Alias
Focus: study associations

Hoi! Ik ben Wessel. Ik ben tweedejaars student van de interdisciplinaire opleiding Taal- en Cultuurstudies en zie daardoor een hoop van de faculteit Geesteswetenschappen en wat daar allemaal gebeurt. Ook door mijn bestuursjaar bij Studiestichting Alias ben ik mij gaan realiseren dat het belangrijk is dat er kritisch gekeken wordt naar het facultaire beleid en dat de student, jij dus, goed vertegenwoordigd wordt! Dit zijn, naast punten als duurzaamheid, speciale aandacht voor de vele studieverenigingen die GW kent, kleinschalig en interdisciplinair onderwijs mijn speerpunten voor aankomend jaar.

Vind jij dit ook belangrijk? Stem dan 20 mei op mij, nummer #5 op de lijst! Mocht je vragen hebben, of suggesties, stuur me dan vooral een berichtje, want ik hoor heel graag van je!

8) Jacob Hilz

UHSK, Orca
Focus: sustainability

Hi everyone, I am Jacob Hilz; a third year history student and #8 for Lijst VUUR. This year, I studied the first semester in Uppsala, Sweden. This is where I realised that I wanted to commit myself to becoming a member of the Faculty council. By reason of after 3 years of making the most out of my time as a student, I wanted do something more serious within the university. Besides my time as an ordinary student, I also row for one of Utrecht’s rowing organizations and therefore would like to play my part for the sporting students in Utrecht within the Faculty council. Also, because my experience as an international student I hope to bring some of these experience to the Faculty council. Lastly, I would like to add that if you vote for me, I will strive to improve some important questions surrounding the subjects of improving sustainability and the lack of money within our faculty. Vote for me between the 20th and 22th if you want sustainable change in the faculty!
