New bachelor coordinatorFriday 16 December 2016 15:07

On Thursday, December 15th, we thanked Brigit Geveling for all her hard work as our beloved bachelor coordinator in the form of a drink. Some people gave speeches and she received some gifts, including a gift from the students of course. She has done a wonderful job but to all good things come an end.

But that doesn't mean that no new good things will come! We now welcome our new bachelor coordinator: Stefanie Kraanen. On the 24th of January you will get the chance to get to know her during a Researcher Researched. We wish her good luck and we're sure that she will help a lot of students!

There you can specify your year and fill in three teachers that you think are the best teachers of Applied Mathematics. Easy, quick and fancy (thanks!).
