GAOS aims at organizing several study related and fun activities throughout the year. This is done to improve social cohesion between students and between students and companies. Study related activities that can be thought of are company visits, excursions to natural areas and case studies, while fun activities are drinks, sports and the trip abroad. Pictures of many of the recent activities can be seen here.
All activies are shared on the GAOS Facebook Page and can be seen in the event calendar. Additionally, GAOS organizes two standard drinks a month: the Research Workshop Drinks and the VrijMiBo.
Research Workshop Drinks
The master course Research Workshop & Skills Labs is given throughout the year. During this course, a presentation session is hosted once every month, in which students, alumni and other involved people present their research, internship or other interesting information. After these sessions, GAOS hosts a drink so that everyone can meet up in an informal setting. These drinks are held in the GAOS room (SP A1.118).
VrijMiBo (Friday Afternoon Drinks)
The VrijMiBo, or Friday Afternoon Drinks, are held once every month on Friday afternoon. The VrijMiBo has been organised so that students can come together and relax in the GAOS room after a week of hard work. Furthermore, sometimes GAOS tries to combine the VrijMiBo with a fun and interesting event. For example: a combination of the VrijMiBo and a Canal Cruise past the Amsterdam Lights Event.
