Have you had enough of all the exams?
Do you miss those good old times at high school?
The times where you and your squad dominated the hallways? Then this is your chance to go back to that good old school time for one night! Because on the 22nd of November study-association Labyrint organizes one of the best parties of the year: Back to School, what’s your squad?!
Is the wardrobe of your geek-squad filled with braces and khaki trousers? Do you and your girlfriends have cheerleading outfits that are just a little too revealing? Or does your squad love the panther print and Gucci bags of the Sjonnies and Anitas? Show it off and bring your squad to the NEXT in Leiden on the 22nd of November, after all, who doesn’t love a ‘next’-level party!
Do you see different colors in your mind when you think of the days of the week? Do you taste something in your mouth when you hear a word? Do you think of a color when you hear a certain song on the radio? If your answer to one of these questions is ‘yes’, you might be one of the 2-4% of the population who have a form of synesthesia.
On the 23rd of November the Alumni Committee will organize the first activity of the year. It will be an interesting lecture on synesthesia in room 1A21 at the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences. Synesthesia is a condition in which people mix their senses, for example reading letters in a specific color, even when they are printed in black and white. The lecture will be given by dr. Tessa van Leeuwen, a neurobiologist, researcher and experience expert from Nijmegen. She is currently researching the subject of synesthesia in combination with autism spectrum disorder. She will be able to tell you much more about this subject.
You are welcome at 7:00 PM and the lecture will start at 7:30 PM. The lecture will approximately end at 9:00 PM. Afterwards you are welcome to have a drink at the Common Room on the second floor of the faculty.
Price: €2.50 for members and €4.50 for non-members. You can buy your tickets online or in the common room by card (SA55).

On the 22nd of February the Alumni Committee will organize the second activity of the year. It will be an interesting workshop on mindfulness in room 1A27 at the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences. The workshop will be given by Saake Buwalda. He is, together with his sister, the founder of the Bureau for Mindfulness. They have experienced that mindfulness is very useful for people who are in the age category of 18-35 years old. A lot of things are changing in this stage of life, for example in work, study, where you live and in relationships. Mindfulness is a good tool to handle these changes. Mindfulness is the awareness of your own physical experiences, feelings and thoughts. It comes down to learning to live more consciously and to deal with stress, thoughts and emotions differently. This is done through training, sometimes meditation and through certain attention exercises. Saake studied Work and Organizational Psychology and Eastern Philosophy in Amsterdam and is now a trainer.

The Magic Code
Do you really want to be surprised and experience something psychologically baffling. Come to the Magic Workshop of Jasper Oberon presented by Labyrint. A real feel-good workshop full of surprises, excitement and action. An inexplicable magic act combined with a workshop in which you get to know the wonders of magic up close. And will be tempted to define how a magician uses psychology to manipulate his audience. Feel the wonder how it is to be fooled first, and secondly be surprised again by the explanation. Last, do the work yourself and be the magician yourself. Lock the door, because the secret magic suitcase will open.
In the workshop 'The Magic Code' you can first sit back and let yourself be overwhelmed by a short magical show by Jasper Oberon that will fill you with astonishment. Then you will sit on the edge of your chair, because then it will happen; You will be initiated into the wonderful world of magic. A whole new world will open up for you. What does a trick look like through the eyes of a magician? What is that about? Jasper has made a choice out of some nice tricks that you will easily master and that you will enjoy.
Effects with cards, feeling energy, but also pulling a rope through your neck or letting matches move. It's all covered. Perhaps the psychological aspects of magic and the use of distraction and biological principles to guide your brain are the most interesting. Jasper Oberon can then tell you fascinating things about this and will try to answer all your questions about the psychological aspects of magic.
