Halloween at Wittenborg - Swift Student Organisation Event
Wittenborg University students enjoyed the end of the week by celebrating Halloween. The evening started with the movie Scary Movie showing at the Spoorstraat building to around 80 students who got into the spirit of things by dressing up and making themselves look frightening.
The event was organised by the student Association known as Swift. Swift, is a student Association run by students at Wittenborg aimed specifically at organising fun things to do during the year for all undergraduate and postgraduate students. Swift is an elected body that is part of the student representatives, and funded by the university. However Swift does not get involved in the discussions around education and university organisation - that’s left to the body of 'Student Reps".
Elections coming up for student reps!
This year student representatives are again being elected during November and December with the results of the election being presented at a another Swift drinks and entertainment evening held for all students and staff on the Friday Evening before Christmas at the Irish Pub in Apeldoorn.
Student representatives play an important role in life at the University, discussing the development programs, and the facilities and support systems that are in place for students as well as helping in the decision-making process, as part of the Faculty Council.
The successful 2019 Halloween evening was ended in the downtown at one of Apeldoorn's local bars with a drinks and music party evening that attracted over 100 students.
