Below you can find a couple of stories from our members about their experience as a member of Labyrint!
Damian, 21 years
Like many, I initially became a member for the discount on the books, but I stayed especially for the fun and the chance to meet people. As a first-year student in the year after
the online years there was quite a bit to catch up on and there was no better opportunity to do that than at Labyrint. I made many friends and gained experience. From the trips to here and there, to the interesting lectures and symposia. There is something to do within the association for everyone, and you ca nbe active as you would like to. As an active member of the best committee (the lustrum travel committee), consistent activity-goer and proud furniture of the coming room I can say thay Labyrint is a true home.
Hannah Power, 22 years old
Hoi, Hoi, I am Hannah and I knew… there was something missing in my University experience. I wanted to be in more contact with diverse psychology students; I strived for a greater understanding of Dutch Gezelligheid and fancied the idea of practical work within my field of study. By becoming active in Labyrint, Leiden’s study association of Psychology. these longings were fed! Now, I can call myself a proud member of its community. One, in which everyone is welcomed in the common room, and one that also takes care of an academic exchange, such as at the beloved Psychology and Future Perspectives Congress!
Anouk Schut, 23 years old
Hey everyone! The book discount obviously played a big part in becoming a member of Labyrint, but during the First Years Weekend it became clear that the association has so much more to offer. After hearing about all the different activities that are organized by the different committees, I immediately became an active member. In the past years, I have committed myself to various committees, a board year, and I am currently a member of the Advisory Board. Now I am a fifth-year student, but I look back at the previous years with great pleasure. The best thing about Labyrint? The open atmosphere that is always present at activities and in the common room. I met a lot of super nice people and have a ton of good memories of all the activities!
Roald Uppelschoten, 21 years old
Hey everyone! My name is Roald and I'm a second-year IBP student, as well as a member of this year's congress committee and treasury committee at Labyrint. Admittedly, I originally only joined for the discounted books, but that attitude changed completely at the First Years Weekend. I had a great weekend with lots of fun activities to quickly get to know my fellow students. Halfway through that weekend, I decided to become an active member by joining a committee. Since then, I've met a lot of amazing people through social activities, the common room at the faculty, 'borrels', and of course my wonderful committees!
Irene van Herrewegen, 19 years old
Hey! My name is Irene and I am now a first-year student. Initially, I joined Labyrint because of the book discount, but soon I found out that Laby had much more to offer. This year I am one of the promotors of the On The Rail committee and I'm really enjoying it! With your committee, you really form a new group of friends. Not only do you have serious meetings, but you also have really fun social dates to get to know each other better! Because I did not enter Augustinus this academic year, this was my main reason to join Labyrint. In short, there aren’t any reasons to not become and stay a member of Labyrint!
