Reminder: Sign up for the Open Mic!

In the last biweekly, we told you about the Open Mic night that will take place on the 24th of April. To make this event happen, we do still need some acts and because some of you might still be thinking about signing up, we have set a new deadline on April 15th to give you some more time. Don’t forget: this is not a competition and everyone is welcome to share their talents and have a good time with other members. We hope to see you there!
> When: Wednesday, April 24th, 19:00 – ~21:30
> Where: Lipsius 2.34
> Want to perform? Sign up by sending an e-mail to freshersalbion@gmail.com with your name and your act before the 15th of April
Send in your Short Story!

Send in your Short Story!

The third edition of the Angler will be all about LGBTQ+ and inclusion. You’re invited to write a short story of around a 1000 words and send it to them, so that they can publish their favourite story in the upcoming issue! It would be nice if the theme is incorporated in some way, but they do accept short stories that do not have elements of LGBTQ+ and/or inclusion in them. Feeling inspired? Send your stories to anglereditor@gmail.com, and you might see yours in print!
> The deadline for sending in your short story is the 24th of March!

Great British Bake Off

Great British Bake Off

As soon as the mid-terms are over, we are here for you and we know what you need: comfort food! Bring your favourite snacks to this High Tea-ish event, or bake something yourself and join the Bake Off competition!

A Walk in the Park

A Walk in the Park

As the mid-terms are coming near and you may or may not be spending all your hours in the UB, you should not forget that it’s important to take breaks from studying and to take care of yourself. With this activity, your self-care will be a walk in the park! That is, we are literally going for a walk in the park. Join us on this stroll through the Leidse Hout park and for some hot chocolate in a cafe afterwards. Reward yourself with this healthy study break!
> When: Wednesday, March 13th, 15:45
> Where: we gather at 15:45 in front of the Starbucks at Leiden Centraal, and expect to be back before dinner time!

That’s right, a good old (bad) movie night! On the 7th of March we’ll get together in Lipsius 2.27 to revive some of our childhood memories (or traumas, whatever suits you) by having a Shrek marathon. We’ll watch Shrek 2 and 3 (which are easy to follow if you haven’t seen the first film) to forget about all the homework and deadlines for a while! Snacks and drinks will be provided but, of course, you’re always welcome to bring some snacks of your own!
