Create a Point of Sale account!

Merel Atia 2022-09-19

Do you get annoyed waiting for the super slow ATM during our weekly drinks night? The people behind the bar sure do! Fortunately, there is an easy solution: you can create a Point of Sale (PoS) account. This allows you to pay both in de Kelder and during drinks very easily. In de Kelder, you look for your name on the iPad and enter your chosen PIN code, after which the amount is withdrawn from your account. During drinks, it's even easier: all you have to do is say your name! The people behind the bar will then ensure that the correct amount is taken from the correct account. This way you can get your drink in your hands even faster!

New confidants at Science Park

Floor van de Leur 2022-09-12

As of recently, there are confidants at Science Park again! After the last confidant left, the FNWI was temporarily without one last year, but from now on you can contact Kristien van Lunen and Belle Jansen when you are dealing with unpleasant situations. These can be anything from discrimination to bullying and from sexual harassment to aggression. On svia.nl/health you will find the contact details of the new confidants, as well as information about student psychologists, the student doctor, the Sexual Violence Center and more. Be sure to take a look at that page, and don't hesitate to contact one of the confidants if you experience something unpleasant and want to talk about it.

Board member at via: something for you?

Eva Oostenbrink 2022-09-05

The new academic year has begun and board 23 is now over half way through their board year. This means that in a few months, six places will become available on the board! Are you a second-year student or higher and would you like to spend a year dedicating your life to via? Read more about this unique experience at svia.nl/interesse and, if you are interested, send an email to the board advisory committee (baco@svia.nl). Of course, you are not tied to anything yet - the advisory committee (BaCo) is there to investigate with you whether a year on the board is something you’d like, by having a few conversations with you. In addition, before you officially apply, you can get a taste of the board year at various events, such as during a board information night, a board meeting that you can attend or by joining a current board member for a day. So send that email and find out if being a board member is something for you!

Student goodie boxes!

Floor van de Leur 2022-09-05

Want to start your year with free goodies? You can, because there are student boxes again! This year they include a measuring cup, soy sauce, bicycle lights, candy and an advertisement for the dentist. Would you like a free student box too? Then fill out the form at svia.nl/box and show the confirmation email to one of the board members in “de Kelder” (LAB42, ground floor). Be quick, because gone is gone!

via has moved!

Floor van de Leur 2022-09-05

Last week, via moved into a beautiful new association room on the ground floor of the brand new building LAB42! Drop by for answers to all your questions, a free cup of coffee or tea, something tasty to eat or drink, or just for fun (“gezelligheid”). Even though we have upgraded from fishbowl to aquarium, we will of course continue to call our beautiful room de Kelder (“the basement”). We are open every day from 9 am (for your first cup of coffee) until 9:30 pm (for your last beer), except for Mondays, when we close at 6. Hope to see you soon in our beautiful Kelder on the ground floor of LAB42!
