Experience Your Future

From Organisational Psychology to Therapy with Animals – you can become quite everything you want as a future psychologist! How fun that may sound, it also complicates the process of finding your dream job. But don’t worry – SPiN and SPS-NIP Regional Board Nijmegen will organise this year’s Experience Your Future (EYF) as well!
During this two-day event psychologists from different work fields will come and talk about their work to give you a better insight about your career. Per day there will be several lectures and an information market. 

GMA: Biannual reports

First GMA completely in English!

On Tuesday the 27th of February the second General Members' Assembly (GMA) of the association year 2017-2018 will take place. The GMA will take place in ‘de Waagh’ and will start at 19.00 o'clock. You are cordially invited to attend this assembly. During the GMA the Xth board will present her secretarial and financial biannual report. She will also present her suggestion for an end time of the GMA. Your opinion will also be taken into account about this first completely English GMA via a survey. As said before, the main spoken language of the GMA will be English and all the documents are therefor only written in English. All members are more than welcome!
Furthermore we have the possibility for you to join us for dinner for a special price in ‘de Waagh’ beforehand! Are you interested in this possibility? Please send an email to secretary@spin-nijmegen.com
Note: at this GMA it is your own responsibility to bring the accompanying documents to the meeting. You can do this by bringing your laptop/tablet or by printing the documents at SPiN's common room.

Pub lecture: Gender differences in social media

Send nudes! A common phrase that we hear often, whether it's serious or it’s a joke. However what happens once the nude photos have been sent? Are the consequences experienced differently by boys or girls? On the 20th of February the study associations SPiN and TOEP will organize a lecture about gender differences in social media. The lecture will be given by Marijke Naezer, who you might have already seen on television. What makes this lecture even more special is the fact that it will be in the pub. If you are not convinced yet, than we can probably do this by telling you that the first 50 visitors will receive a free drink!

Do not wait any longer and register yourself on the SPiN’s common room or online from 10.30h on the 7th of February!

Lustrum poolparty

If you were at the gala, you've probably already heard: we will celebrate the next lustrum activity completely in Spring Break style, under water!

March 1st, the lustrum poolparty will take place at Sportfondsenbad West with the theme 'lets SPLASH at SPiN's Xth Birthdaybash!'. 
The coolest lights, a new DJ, inflatable animals, palm trees and glow frisbees: name it and we've got it! 
Even the waterslide will be open a part of the night for the real diehards. 

So do you want to have a splashing start to spring, then quickly get yourself a ticket starting Monday February 5th at SPiN's common room or online!

Board Blog Evelien Smits

Dear reader,

First I hope that your exams have gone well and that you can breathe again after all the exam stress of the past weeks. I also had two exams myself. I have to admit that it is always hard to combine studying with the board tasks and additionally I also do some voluntary work at the Child’s Helpline. Furthermore I regularly spend some time with my friends and am I having some dinner quickly with my roommates in between a meeting and a party. Luckily these are all very nice things to do!

To clear my head, I sometimes go to my parents for the weekend. Although my parents do not always understand our five-hour meetings, all activities during the weekdays and all those policy documents, they happily support me a lot in my decisions and they are proud of what ‘m doing. That is very nice! For example my father went through the entire SPiN’s website to find out more about it and my mother often tells me that I have to put my laptop or phone away (as she would say 'stop that SPiNning') to relax for a moment.
