Current Board

Caerus Board of 2020-2021

The 6th Caerus Board

Chair: Birgit Eggink

Hi everyone, I am Birgit and I will be the Chair of Caerus for 2020-2021! I am currently in my 2nd year at UCG enjoying myself very much with all the extra courses I am taking. During my first year, I was part of the Lustrum Team and the Intro Week Committee. This showed me all the ins and outs of the study association and just how appreciative I am of it, and all that it does :). My goal is to be approachable and open to everyone who has a question, concern or need to chat about Caerus (or anything else).

Secretary: Zoe Reining

Hey hey, my name is Zoe and I am currently in my 3rd year at UCG. I am majoring in Social Sciences and usually take courses in Psychology, Sociology and Politics. If I am not doing yoga, travelling or trying some DIY stuff, you will most likely find me at the market or at some kind of second-hand shop. Initially, I had planned to go on an exchange semester to Spain but instead applied for Caerus Board which turned out to be a great decision. I am enjoying my time as Secretary very much and I am grateful to be managing such an amazing study association! If you have any (administrative) questions, I will be there to listen and answer. So, please always feel free to contact me. I hope to see you all in person as soon as possible. Stay safe!

Treasurer: Eleni Syriopoulos

Hoi hoi! My name is Eleni and I am in my 2nd year at UCG. I am focusing my studies on business/entrepreneurship-related subjects. I decided to do a board year because the events that Caerus organises have helped me deal with/(kind of) overcome my social anxiety and I wanted to give back and grow even more. Although I am currently unable to travel back to the Netherlands I look forward to when I will be able to attend one of our physical events and see you all again. I will try my best to overcome the challenges that the pandemic has created. Feel free to reach out if you need anything or have any questions. Hope you are all healthy and stay safe so we can see each other again soon.

Committee Affairs Officer / UCSRN Academic Representative: Julius Westerhoff

Heya, my name is Julius and I am a 3rd year UCG student. My studies are interdisciplinary and range from psychology to philosophy and from economics to the arts. I decided to do a board year in order to interact with Caerus in a more meaningful way and to develop myself. While my interests are primarily academic, I will be active at all things Caerus related. If you have any questions regarding our committees or if you are in a committee and want to get things done, please approach me. I am looking forward to representing Caerus and will try my best this upcoming year!

Committee Affairs Officer / UCSRN Social Representative: ​Eva Douglas

Hey! My name is Eva and I’m going to be your Cao (social) this year! After the summer I’ll be starting my 3rd year at UCG. I’m doing a major in social sciences with a specific focus on international relations and international law. During my second year, I was part of the Lustrum Team, thanks to the amazing time I had there I chose to do a board year! I’m looking forward to seeing all of you again (hopefully in real life and otherwise online) and hearing all of your questions and concerns about the amazing committees we have at Caerus. Feel free to contact me, either by WhatsApp or by sending a simple text! Stay healthy <3.

External Affairs Officer: ​​Geanne Welp

Hi! My name is Geanne and I am currently a 2nd year at UCG. Right now, I am focusing on psychology, sociology and law in order to be able to do a masters in Criminology. I am a proud Groninger and hope to give Caerus the chance to get the credit it deserves within the student community. I will focus on expanding Caerus’ network so members can grow their own social circle as well. I am open to all kinds of collaborations and hope to hear input and ideas from all over the Caerus community. Hope to meet all of you soon!
