An overview of the committees of I*ESN Tilburg

Academic Committee

This committee is involved with several projects during the year, such as Night University and discussion/debate evenings at our bar. The committee is also responsible for organising a symposium. This year we started with Introducing the Netherlands, lectures with various themes, taught by Tilburg University professors coming from all kinds of fields. These lectures are open to all, but especially targeted at international students in Tilburg and refugees.

Interested in joining? We are looking for new committee members for Fall ’16, send an email to Renate,

Acquisition Committee

Are you joining I*ESN and do you really want to helping along with enlarging our association? Then, sign up for the acquisition committee. Based on a first view it might be a bit vague what this committee is and does. We are the ones, together with the Treasurer, always looking out for ways and possibilities to attract new sponsors and partners. By this you get a nice opportunity to boost your professional skills as well as your CV. Interested in joining us?!

Bar committee

The BarCo is the biggest committee we have. The guys and girls in red will serve you drinks during the parties, pub quizzes and dinners. They really set the mood and make sure you have a great time! Also walking around in Carpe Noctem, are the “bar managers”. The managers have extra responsibilities. They make sure there is enough liquor, do their best to make sure there are no fights in the bar, that there is toilet paper, answer all the questions you might have and deal with the lost and found in the bar.

Every two weeks, they get together to discuss how things are going. After the meeting there’s time to bond and have fun together. The managers and BarCo are the extra eyes during a party next to the responsible board members; there hasn’t been one single fight in our bar. Also, what you might not notice is that the BarCo always cleans after the parties, pub quizzes and dinners. That’s hard work after a long night, but we make sure there is an after drink with some snacks as well. At the end of the semester, an event especially for the bar committee, is planned to thank them for all they did.

The communication committee meets every 2 weeks and will make sure I*ESN Tilburg presents itself during the introduction period, on campus, in the city centre, to new students and to students just looking for a nice association to join!

The communication committee’s main goal is to come up with new campaigns e.g.: the promo campaign for the international cantus, an active member campaign, a campaign for mentors/buddies/amigos, etc. The communication committee can help design the flyers and posters for those campaigns. Next to that, the communication committee will look into making promo videos. Besides, the committee will look for volunteers to join and help promote by for example flyering, doing lecture talks, painting bikes and other promo activities.

Cooking Committee

The CoCo serves you food almost every other friday. You can find the different dates on the calendar. For only 5 euros you can enjoy an amazing dinner with your friends in Carpe Noctem. Every night there will be a different theme, for example tapas night, Dutch dinner or a Sinterklaas dinner.

There is a difference between Carpe Dinners and Cooking with Culture. Carpe Dinners are fully served and made by the CoCo, the Cooking with Culture nights exchange students can show part of their culture by helping the CoCo with cooking a meal that is typically for their country. This means you can show a part of your culture to other exchange students. This can go together with a little quiz about your home country or a special drink.
