Apply for the Career Day Committee!

Apply for the Career Day Committee!

“You study English? What job are you going to do then?” Everyone studying English Language and Culture has surely gotten this question at least once in their life. As a study association, we are here to hopefully arm you with some possible answers, because there are in fact many career possibilities with your English degree! As you may know, Albion organises a Career Day every year. However, this year, in line with the theme of this year’s ‘444-viering’ Humanities Matter, Albion wants to go a little bigger. That’s why we’re creating a Career Day Committee! Do you want to help make this day possible and polish up your resume? The committee will meet several times to brainstorm on possible speakers, workshops and advertising and you are hopefully present at the career event itself to help out. Are you interested? Send an e-mail to albionesque@gmail.com or shoot a Whatsapp message to our chair Bart via 06-42328136

2019? Haha, more like 20wineteen

2019? Haha, more like 20wineteen

The new year has come around! For some of us that means a time of change and new beginnings. Others claim that time is a social construct and continue on their existentialistic voyage. Either way, on the 15th of January, we are celebrating the socially accepted birthday of the earth in good old North End: the perfect time to catch up with your classmates and fellow students! “Is this a Monthly Drinks in disguise?”, you might ask. To that we can only say: yes, yes it is. But now it has a title! With a pun! You cannot possibly resist that right?

how: go to https://www.studystore.nl/, select ‘studievereniging’ and find Albion. The rest speaks for itself! (Any changes in prescribed study materials are at your own risk)
Albion to The Rescue

Albion to The Rescue

Stressed about your resits? Don’t worry, we got you fam. Albion has now set up its own tutoring army for tutoring sessions! If you are not feeling confident about Linguistics, Philology or Literature, you can contact us through acq.albion@gmail.com and let us know what you need help with and when you would like to receive this help; then we will set you up with a tutor. Our tutoring sessions are mainly aimed at the resits, so hopefully none of you will need it. The hourly rate will be €10,- for our members and €15,- for non-members. That’s a steal for a good grade.

Let the Games Begin!

Let the Games Begin!

Do you like to spend time with your fellow Albioneers? Do you like board games? Do you like being part of a daring new plan? Then you’re in luck, because Albion is starting up a brand new concept. It’s called “ABV First Levels” (ABV as in Albion Board Games Venture) and will basically be a group of students organizing get-togethers in which we will play board games (and possibly D&D if people are interested). We are still figuring out the details, but our first meeting will be right after the exams of January. If you want to stay posted about this abundance of fun, join our Whatsapp group via this link: https://chat.whatsapp.com/DIbpiRLwdv1GNAOqNllXy1. All group participants get to co-decide when we’ll meet and what we’ll be playing!
Christmas Potluck Dinner

Christmas Potluck Dinner

What better way to celebrate Christmas than with good company, good food, and a little early? Did I say good food already? Because oh man, Christmas food. Come celebrate the end of your December exams on the 20th by joining us for a lovely Christmas dinner at Cafe de Keyzer! The only condition: everyone brings something to eat! (It is, after all, a potluck dinner.) We’ll take care of all the non-food stuff, and drinks will have to be bought on location, so you only have to consider food. Be aware that it is not possible to warm up food at De Keyzer.
> when: December 20th, 18:00
> where: Cafe de Keyzer
> sign up and tell us what you want to bring by sending an email to aac.albion@gmail.com before the 17th of December (!!)
Winter Games & Christmas Market

Winter Games & Christmas Market

Freshers, listen up! The Freshers’ Committee will provide a welcome break from the exams on the 17th of December, right when the Philology 1 exam is over. From 14:30 onward, you can come and play games all afternoon (bring your favourite games!), relax AND you can participate in an Ugly Christmas Jumper Contest! So put on your most hideous Christmas jumper and you might just win a prize! This festive gaming afternoon will end at 17:00, but the fun won’t. If you want to, you can join us for dinner and a little trip to the Leidse Kerstmarkt. Of course, this isn’t obligatory and if you want to go home after the games, that’s fine too! Lastly, if you’re not a fresher, don’t worry: this festive activity is open to all members.
