Once again, it’s for the beloved rubric 'Welcommitees!', where we present all new committees that started in January. We asked everyone to tell something about themselves and to answer three questions about their committee members. In this episode we introduce to you the committee that every year saves us all from our student lifestyle, the Sport Committee. These athletic guys and girls are responsible for getting us all to go outside, with great activities such as the annual FAECTOR Ski Trip.
My name is Livia and I'm in my second year of my bachelor. Besides studying, I love to do gymnastics and mountain climbing. In FAECTOR, I'm a proud member of the SpoCo.
We want to organise some sporty events, to keep all the econometricians in shape!
This year, we want to organise some sporty events, to keep all the econometricians in shape! Of course, this includes the yearly soccer tournament and the awesome FAECTOR ski trip.
One of the most embarrassing things that ever happened to me, was probably during the last FAECTOR ski trip. When we just entered the lift, I was asked the question what 'orange juice' was in French. At the end of the lift I still didn't know, which really entertained the others... (it is jus d'orange)
Hi, I’m Lotte, a first year BSc2 student. A little while ago, I joined the Sport Committee and together we will be organising some great events this year! We’ve got a soccer tournament coming up, we’re going to be promoting FAECTOR during the Eurekaweek, and of course there is the legendary Ski Trip! Next to my studies, I like to have dinner and hang out with my friends, play some tennis, watch soccer, or make some music.
So, I stayed in my seat and the lift was already turning around, going back down, when I yelled: stop, I’m still sitting here!
I’ve definitely had quite a few embarrassing moments, which I’m happy not to share with you. However, there was one time, while on a ski trip with school, when I didn’t get out of the ski lift, because someone fell in front of me and I didn’t know what to do (skiing around him didn’t appear as an option to me somehow). So, I stayed in my seat and the lift was already turning around, going back down, when I yelled: stop, I’m still sitting here! Then, a guy stopped the lift, so that I could get out. My classmates thought it was a great story, that I had to listen to way too many times.
Hi there! My name is Jim and I am an 18-year-old Dutch student at Erasmus University Rotterdam. I am currently studying BSc2. Besides that, I am a proud member of the new SpoCo, or equivalently, Spo’Vo, this year. In my spare time, I like to spend time with friends, watch football or darts and do some sports, which is pretty much required as a member of the SpoCo, right?
After a while, however, multiple security guards recognized me and came after me!
I especially like to go snowboarding on a ski trip in Austria, and that’s also precisely what I want to achieve this year: I want to organise the best FAECTOR Ski Trip in years. Besides that, of course, I want to organise a lot of other unforgettable activities!
An embarrassing moment happened once at a party in my hometown, Nijmegen. I really wanted to go to this party, but the alcohol detection device stopped me… However, after some tries, I managed to get in through some secret doors. After a while, however, multiple security guards recognized me and came after me! Luckily, I managed to escape via some of the roof tops…
Hello! My name is Jeroen, I am 19 years old and currently studying the Dutch bachelor Econometrics. I am currently a new member of the Sports Committee. In my free time, I like to watch football, go out with friends, especially to festivals, and play loads of FIFA, which makes me a perfect fit for the Sport Committee!
I passed out in front of my parents, when I came home
In this committee, I want to organise the best ski trip FAECTOR has had to date, with the best après-ski yet, for the less experienced skiers like myself.
A moment that was very embarrassing for me, was on a night out. First, I barfed over the bar in a club and got kicked out. Then, I passed out in front of my parents, when I came home. It ended with my parents being furious with me and me being banned from that club for a while.
Dear members, mijne leeden, hereby, I would like to introduce myself for the fourth and for this year’s last time, now as supervisor of the Sport Committee. As a young boy, I used to play soccer three times a week at T.O.G.B.; Tot Ons Genoegen Berkel. Most of the years, I played in the second team, or I was being used to keep the reserve bank warm of the first team. I started playing at number 7, but became a real Peter Crouch with the number 9 later.
When my studies started, drinking pilsch became the new sport
When my studies started, drinking pilsch became the new sport, but some people still asked for my training schedules… In my second year, I tried to become just as strong as Wouter H., by playing rugby, but after a few months, I realised that it wasn’t the challenge I was looking for. In the next year, I started training for the Marathon of Rotterdam together with some club mates and the president of the Korfbal association of Rotterdam. As a board member, making time for sports became harder and harder, but you can still find me around the Erasmus Sport during the Insanity workouts or squash games.
The SpoCo will give you the opportunity to enjoy some sporty activities next to all drinks, parties and other events; Matlab is running but you should too!
