Hi everyone! We are the year representation for the Dutch second year. Now you might think, “year representation? That just sounds boring and useless”. Well, even though you´re kind of right about the useless part, most students don´t know that we actually improve lectures and speak to teachers about complaints. To be honest, we´re pretty sure most of them have forgotten we exist. Not all heroes wear capes you know… You couldn´t be more wrong about the boring part though, because our committee consists of four awesome individuals whom we will introduce right below! Tamara is our executive and handles all external communication. Still, she managed to miss the only email we´ve ever received in our committee-mailbox, which is pretty impressive! It had been in our mailbox for over a month. We´re not kidding... Manon takes care of our financials, and she takes her role very seriously considering year representations don´t actually get a budget from VIP. The VIP board fired her for missing a meeting once, but she was happily surprised when she found out it was just our own internal joke. IT´S JUST A PRANK BRO! Jeanine is head of internal communications. Now you might wonder, why do you need someone for internal communications? Well, writing reports about statistic courses is pretty depressing, so some occasional motivation is more than welcome. Bart is the “vieze voorzitter” and our “fixboii”, because he fixes, well, stuff. Now if you´re not Dutch you probably won´t get those puns. Let´s just say being the only guy in a committee of four has consequences…
The Dutch year representation for second year students consists of five students from the same year. The year represantation is co-responsible for the improvement of the quality of the study. They do this by keeping track of how fellow students think about the courses, the lectures, and exams. The year representatives write a report about what students think about a course. They get this information by talking to as many students as possible and keeping their opinion in mind. furthermore deliberate with the program committee, the faculty board, the faculty council and the program director about good and improvable points of the study.
