Dear EPU members,

EPU’s study trip will take us to Prague this year! If you know you want to go on this awesome trip please save 100 euros of your stufi this month for the forward payment, which is due December 1st. The trip will be 210 euros in total, but the second payment will be in January. What do you get for this price?
– 3 nights in a hostel in the centre of Prague (from the 14th until the 17th of April)

The full price of the trip is 210 euros. The first payment of 100 euros should be transferred to IBAN NL06ABNA0468748490 before December 1st 2017. The second payment of 110 euros has to be done before January 25th 2018.

Cancellation policy:
If you sign up, we assume that you are coming along with us on the trip. This means that if you have signed up, we need the full 210 euros for your spot. If you need to cancel, let us notice via travel@svepu.nl, preferably before December 31st.
EPU can transfer your money back, IF we can give your spot to someone on the reserve list. If we can not do that, we can not do so and you still need to pay the full price. We hope that this is understandable since we have cancellation policies of the hostel and airline to work with.

Hello EPU-members!

We will fly to Warsaw on the 22nd of April. The flight will depart at 8:50 from Eindhoven airport, so we have to leave Groningen on arranged transport early in the morning, around 04:00. This means that we will have the whole first day in Warsaw to rest and explore the city a bit! We will fly back the 25th of April, and arrive in Eindhoven around 12:00.

The total costs of this trip will be 190 euros, including flight, hostel, activities, and dinner. If you want to join this awesome trip, make sure to be ready for the opening of the sign-ups on the EPU website (21st of November, 17:00, link will follow on Facebook). In order to fill in the sign-up sheet, you will need to have your passport or ID card ready, and you should know whether you have a travel insurance or/and a liability insurance.

Shortly after you have signed up, you will receive a confirmation-email of your spot on the trip, or an email that states you have been put on the reserve list. If you are one of the lucky people that have managed to claim a spot, you will have to transfer your first deposit payment of 70 euros to the EPU bank account (IBAN NL06ABNA0468748490) before the 25th of November. Please note that if we do not receive the first payment before the 27th of November (it might take a maximum of two days to receive your money after transfer), you will lose your spot on the trip. The first person on the reserve list will then get your spot, so make sure you pay on time!

Note that you will not be able to cancel after the 27th of November, and we will not give refunds. If you have any questions regarding the trip, please send an email to travel@svepu.nl or comm.intern@svepu.nl We hope you are just as excited for the trip as we are!

America’s Seminar

October 31, 2016 | Posted in General News

Dear First Years,

In order to help you prepare for the Americas Ia exam, we will organize a workshop on Friday the 4th of November from 13.00-14.00. The structure of this workshop will be similar to the one for Theories of Culture I. The first fifteen minutes you will be able to ask any question you might have from your preparation. Then, the group will be divided into smaller study groups and you will have the opportunity to discuss the texts amongst each other. During this time, older year students will walk around to help you with any problems that might arise. After this, the last couple of minutes will be devoted to any questions you still have.

Once again, this is a workshop and not a seminar and the structure requires you to come prepared. We ask you to send in any questions you might already have beforehand to info@svepu.nl or put them in the sign up form, so we can prepare some main topics to discuss. The workshop is open to everyone, but we ask you to sign up so we will know how many we can expect.

We hope to see you all on Friday!

Essay Writing Workshop

October 24, 2016 | Posted in General News

Dear First Years,

Within the American Studies program there is a big focus on essay writing. We know that people struggle with this, especially in the first year, and EPU wants to help you! Therefore, we have scheduled a workshop on Friday the 28th of October from 13.00-14.00. We would like you to bring the (old) essays that you have written up until now, so we can discuss (general) issues and problems that are pointed out. We will also discuss comments we have received from your teachers concerning your writing skills, as well as a (thorough) walkthrough of the American Studies Writing Guide. There will also be time to answer any other questions you might have regarding (essay) writing, so be sure to join!

We ask you to send in any questions you might already have beforehand to info@svepu.nl or put them in the sign up form, so we can prepare some main topics to discuss. The workshop is open to everyone, but we ask you to sign up so we will know how many we can expect.

 

We hope to see you all on Friday!

Dear First Years,
On the 24th of October you will have your second Theories of Cultures I exam and EPU wants you to be well-prepared for this! Therefore, we have scheduled a workshop in collaboration with your teachers on Friday the 21st of October from 15.00-16.00. The structure of this workshop will be slightly different from the first one and requires you to come prepared. The first fifteen minutes you will be able to ask any question you might have from your preparation. Then, the group will be divided into smaller study groups and you will have the opportunity to discuss the texts amongst each other. During this time, older year students and the teacher will walk around to help you with any problems that might arise. After this, the last couple of minutes will be devoted to any questions you still have.
