It’s time for one of our favourite annual parties: karaoke! On the 6th of December, it’s your chance to shine and sing your heart out. Make sure to come early; the first 3 people who are bold enough to grab the mic will receive a free shot! Also, please don’t request Despacito, we all know that’s unsingable.

On the 4th of December, it’s time for the so-called ‘Tussentijdse ALV’. At this event, there will be the opportunity for members to vote for our Chief Fresher Emma Sow as an official member of board Aeonian. Moreover, the board will present the changes they want to make to the internal regulations of Albion Association (all specific information about this can be found enclosed to this e-mail). During this ‘ALV’, it will also be possible to share your opinion on various aspects of the association, or share any great ideas you might have (we know you do).

Did you know that in week 13 of class, part of the Lit1A homework is to watch the film Rear Window? And did you know that watching films together is much more fun than watching on your own? This is why the Fresher’s Committee invites all of you to come and watch Rear Window with us while enjoying snacks and each other’s company! This movie night (or early-evening homework session if you will) will take place on November 29th, at 18:00 at a yet to be on Facebook announced location. We’ll be happy to see you there! (Note: this activity is also open for people who want to rewatch Rear Window!)

Are you sick and tired of stuffing all your belongings in an old and torn up shopping bag? Would you like a soft and comfortable sweater to get through the winter days? Or do you stick to T-shirts because you always have class in one of those Eyckhof rooms where the heater is more succesful in giving off warmth than the actual sun? Then you’re in luck! Albion is considering creating merchandise and we need your opinion. If you’re interested in Albion-related sweaters, t-shirts, tote bags or if you have great other ideas for merchandise, please let us know via this poll!
Albion, SVS and Tanuki have teamed up to create the ultimate partea on Thursday the 29th of November. There will be enough tastea hot water to bring your wintery cold soul back to at least room temperature. Moreover, there will be cookies and such! So make sure to come and meet some fellow teanagers in the Koffiekamer P.N. van Eyckhof from 15:00-17:00. And if you don’t ever drink tea, come on, give it a chai!
Why do we keep retelling fairy tales? And how have they changed over time? LET (Leiden English Theatre) and Albion have organised a lecture in which Wessel Fledderus will tell us all about it! The lecture will take place on November the 28th from 20:00 onwards in Lipsius 0.05!
Did you know that the 5th of March is International Pancake day? Did you also know that that is useless information because you don’t need a reason to eat pancakes?

You can sign up by sending an e-mail to email@example.com until Tuesday 16:00, so we can make a reservation. (Please note: the costs of this dinner are at your own expense!)
