NCF committees

Events Committee:

PEAC Committee:
As a successor of the H.U.M.M.U.S. Committee, the PEAC – Plant Eater Activity Committee – has been established to enlighten the study association and broader community about the health benefits of a plant-based diet. We aim to educate and inspire people for a lifestyle that is both better for their health and well-being, as well as better for our planet. Our current and future events include but are not limited to vegan cooking workshops and cooking shows, meetings with local restaurants, lectures on topics such as a balanced diet and nutrition, field trips and daily, weekly or monthly plant-based diet challenges. Through the variety of these different educational, spiritual and recreational activities we aim to unite the NCF community and contribute to more sustainable lifestyles and world PEAC.  
Do you want to increase your knowledge and skills on a plant-based diet? Do you want to become a part of the change we all want to see? Don’t wait any longer and join our movement!  
The current board consists of Sebo Touwen as Chair, Mike Tobias Berendsen as Secretary, Evy de Joode as Treasurer, Līna Putāne as PR-Responsible and Robbe Stout as Secretary General.

Arts Committee:

The Arts Committee is a space full of creativity. We organise creative activities such as workshops or an open mic night. We have a lot of fun events planned where you can unleash your creativity! We paint, draw, craft, sing and so much more.

The current board consists of Yasmin Madsen (Chair), Gesa Rosskamp (Secretary), Mila Meinhof (Treasurer) and Melda Dogan (PR-Representative).


Travel Committee:

We will be an organisation that books and manages trips for Campus Fryslan students, for instance our annual Ski Trip. We try to keep the trips as cheap as possible but still sustainable. We will not offer flights, for instance, only bus and train trips. We also make sure all our trips are CO2 Neutral, either through the agency we book at or we do it ourselves. In that case, we would ask members to pay a little bit more or we pay it from the financial reserve that we build up. We will manage the administration of every trip and will do the checkin-in at the destination, so we will be the contact person between the travel agency/accommodation and our students.

The current board consists of Justine van der Veen (Chair), Julia Jaarsma (Secretary), Nika van Asselt (Treasurer) and Ceylin Dogru (PR-Representative).

Events Committee:

Together we hope to have social gatherings and parties to keep the sense of community in NCF! The current board consists of Aoife O’Mahony (Chair), Ilse Brandsma (Secretary), Kasper van Haastregt (Treasurer) and Kristin Zimmermann (PR-Representative).

First years/intro week committee:

As a member of this committee, you will be helping the first-years feel welcome at NCF and be helping to organise the introduction week of the first-year students.

Mind-Sharing Committee:

The Mind-Sharing Committee creates a platform for exchanging skills and knowledge that complement our curriculum. It takes place in the form of talks, workshops, and panel discussions by students, local entrepreneurs, staff, and whoever can offer exciting insights or new perspectives. We called it the Mind-Sharing Committee because if we share our knowledge and skills, they expand and inspire new and creative ideas.

The current board consists of Sam Schildberger (Chair), Michalina Czapska (Secretary), Esmé Johnson (Treasurer) and Julia Struzik (PR-Representative).

PR committee:

The Public Relations (PR) Committee is dedicated to promoting NCF through various forms including social media, merchandise, newsletters and other forms of advertising throughout the University. We aim to ensure that everyone sees all the wonderful activities and events that our committees organise for the community, and hope to also attract potential new members through this.  also collecting memories and memorabilia for our members to be able to look back on in the future!

This year’s board consists of Chair Barbara Thurnay, Secretary Josefina Wessel, Treasurer Helena Hamera and PR-representative Marina Göthert.

Debating Committee:

The debating committee will organize debates between the students about global and small-scale problems we face at Campus Fryslan. Next to debates among members, the idea is to invite guest speakers, experts or politicians to share their knowledge and have debates with them.

The current board consist of Paula Perea Garcia (Chair), Ludovica Daffini (Secretary) and Annika Thömmes (Treasurer).


TO DO Committee:


How many times have you felt like a better understanding of data and technology could take YOUR interests to the next level? Or have you found yourself slowly becoming one with your laptop whilst wondering how you can contribute to yourself and society at the same time? The Technology Optimization and Data Observation Committee focus on engaging NCF members with topics related to IT and data. It might sound boring, but secretly we are the coolest committee of all. The TO DO committee looks at what NCF members would like to dive into, and together we will create events and workshops around these topics. Some of the crazy things students have already created are websites and drinking games. Upcoming events will be posted on the NCF Instagram page. Follow to stay tuned!

Support for International Students Committee:

The SIS, Supporting International Students committee, was founded to help international students to settle into a new country. There are a number of forms and applications to be taken care of such as registering to the municipality or applying for certain financial benefits. We help students with translating forms, advise on how to fill in forms and answer any questions students might have. Our goal is to help others by sharing our own experiences. 

The current board consists of Jonna Könkkölä (Chair), Arwen de Sera (Secretary), and Danique Combee (Treasurer).

Craft Beer Committee:

Hello there! We are the Craft Beer Committee (CBC) and focus on everything around craft beers. From beer tastings and tours in breweries to brewing beer, we want to do it all! Currently, we are looking for new members, since there are currently only second years involved. We still have empty spots on our board, and we would love to fill them with new faces! If you would like more information or want to become a member, don’t hesitate to shoot us a message!

The current board consists of Renée Swinkels (Chair), Jacob Campos (Secretary), and Eva Beausoleil (Treasurer).

Language and Culture Committee:

We are a committee about Languages and Cultures. Our aim is to make the most out of all the different nationalities and cultures that we have at UCF: we want to experience and exchange different traditions and have the opportunity to learn a new language with native speakers. The kinds of events that you can expect with us are cultural dinners (Asian or Eastern Europe for example), workshops, and language learning meet-ups. In these meet-ups, little groups of people can learn different languages and teach theirs. We have an Instagram page where we introduce our members, share fun facts about languages and cultures, share recipes from particular cultures, and more!

The current board consists of Amelia Seine (Chair), Anika Wittenberg (Secretary), Julia Struzik (Treasurer) and Klara Wamser (PR-Representative).

Sports committee:

We do sports, as you could have imagined from the title of the committee. Sports is a very important part of our mental wellbeing, and we are here to better that! Our main goals are:

• To send teams representing our Campus to sports tournaments,
• To organize sports events for our students and staff,
• To unite our Campus!

The current board consists of Vasco de Sousa (Chair), Vicki Calleja (Secretary), Martin Ottens (Treasurer) and Timotej Kopča (PR-Representative).

Drama committee:

The Drama committee is a space for lovers of acting, singing, dancing, and other theatre related skills. We aim to make a musical where people can show their talent in each of these areas. This main event consists of weekly rehearsals and other fun activities such as set and costume design where you can be free and show your art spirit!

The current board consists of Chiara Matarazzo (Chair), Sam Skultety (Secretary), Sarah Whittle (Treasurer) and Nici Hermes (PR-Responsible).
