Vastelaovend (=Carnival) is just around the corner! Despite the festivities only officially beginning upcoming sunday, you will already be able to party tonight! Put on a crazy costume, mingle with the crowd and have a beer (or 2, or 3 etc.) ! Since some of us here at NovUM will also be joining the party and others will be taking a well deserved break from work, it might take us a little bit longer to respond to your messages the next few days. Cheers and Alaaf!!
NovUM is one of the big student representation parties with students in the University Council. In this council, university wide policy, problems and ideas are discussed. It is here where we put the focus on the Quality of UM, Accessibility, Integration and Sustainability. Did you know that all of our meetings are open to the public? Check out the link to see when there is a University Council meeting and have a look at what we do! #YourUniversityYourFuture #VoteNovUM https://www.maastrichtuniversity.nl/…/pa…/university-council
Sustainability is one of our four pillars that we truly focus on. Besides major plans that we support in the University Council, namely the UM sustainability Roadmap 2030, you can also make a difference yourself! Doppers are sustainable water bottles and furthermore the company supports safe drinking water projects worldwide! Interested in getting a NovUM Dopper yourself? Send us a PM! #YourUniversityYourFuture #VoteNovUM
This year only 35,5% of new students at our University had Dutch nationality. The University would like this number to go up to 40-50% next year. What do you think would be a good balance of students' nationalities?

Today is warm sweater-day. On this day people, companies and universities across the Netherlands turn down the heating 1 degree in order to save 6% of energy and reduce carbon emissions by 6% as well. Make a difference, wear a sweater and turn down that heating! #YourUniversityYourFuture #VoteNovUM
NovUM's University Council representative Thomas Vaessen has successfully added halal, vegetarian and vegan food to the Mensa menu to accommodate for our University's diverse student population. The added menu items are not a replacement of the current selection of items, they are a complement. Is there anything at the University that you think should be improved? let us know in the comments or send us a personal message! #YourUniversityYourFuture #VoteNovUM
