Hi! My name is Nienke Pleijzier, I am 20 years old and I have studied Gezondheidswetenschappen for three years. I am born in Hengelo, which is near the University and Enschede.

During the Sirius Kick-In camp, we received information about the different committees. During this information market, I decided that I wanted to be an active member of Sirius. At first I only subscribed for one committee, the Freshmen committee. I really enjoyed organising activities with this committee, so I decided to subscribe for a second committee, de Sirius Kick-In committee. I continued working in different committees during my second and third year.

Now I am the Chairman and Commissioner Internationalisation of the 46th board of Sirius. So, next year, I am not going to be an active member in a committee, but I am going to put my time and energy in making Sirius an even better study association.

I am really looking forward to my time as a board member, and I hope to see you in the Sirius room!  



Hey! My name is Tim Schippers, 20 years old, second year Management, Society & Technology student. I grew up in a small city in the province of Drenthe, named Coevorden. Nowadays, I live with three housemates in Enschede. For years, I played football on a level that is not that high, but I always enjoyed it. Football is therefore my favourite hobby.

In my first year I became active at Sirius, at first mainly as committee member of the ExCie EPA (Now ExCie MS&T). In my second year I joined the Symposium Committee and the TaPCie. In the course of time I increasingly turned up at events of Sirius. I have completely found my place at Sirius and certainly did not want to miss my time at the association.

I am Secretary, Commissioner ICT and Vice-Treasurer of the 46th board of Sirius. This means among other things that I will make the minutes of the meetings of the 46th board and that I will be the contact person for email and mail next year. My goal for this year is that I want to be an easily accessible contact person for you and that you will have as much fun and instructive time with Sirius as I did.

I will see you at Sirius!



Hi everyone,

My name is Jorissa van den Dool and I am 21 years old. I obtained my Gezondheidswetenschappen bachelor's degree last July.

Originally, I am from Zevenhuizen (a village near Rotterdam), but in the past 3 years I  spent most time in Enschede. I live on campus, I am a member of the student volleyball association and I am an active member of Sirius for 3 years already. So there is no need to be bored! In the past 3 years I became more and more attached to Sirius by organising and visiting a lot of activities, but mostly by hanging around in the Sirius room with a cup of tea. I am the Treasurer now and I want to put all my time and effort in making the association even better. I will spend a lot of time in the Sirius room so please come by this year to have a cup of tea (or coffee) in the Sirius room. Then we will get to know each other better!



Hey! My name is Merel Ensink, I am 20 years old and I have studied Management, Society & Technology for two years. I am coming from Borne, but I am living in Enschede at this moment.
Directly at the kick-in I decided to be an active member at Sirius. At my first year I started with one committee, but in my second year I decided to increase it to four committees.
This year I will fulfill the function of Commissioner of Internal Affairs with the ancillary functions Commissioner Drinking Space & Public Relations. I am looking forward to work in a lot of committees and organise as many fun activities as possible together with you!

I will see you soon!



Hey! My name is Bram de Rouw and I am 20 years old. I have studied Management, Society & Technology for two years and besides that I am an active member at Sirius in several committees since the beginning of my study. I was born in the beautiful Haaksbergen and lived there until last year. Nowadays I live in Enschede with 5 other students. My hobbies are football, fitness and drinking some beers in the city centre with friends. I have exploited these hobbies at Sirius with Hondester and the Tap and Party committee.

This study year I will be the Commissioner External Affairs, besides that is my sub-function Vice-Chairman. This means that I will preliminary be busy with contacting external organisations. I hope to involve everyone into Sirius, and its activities, with my enthusiasm.

See you in the Sirius Room!



Hi! I am Merle Gijsbers (21 years old) and I would like to introduce myself as the Commissioner Educational Affairs. I grew up nearby Arnhem, in Oosterbeek and later in Doorwerth, together with my parents and my little sister.

After finishing high school, I moved to Enschede to study Gezondheidswetenschappen. In the past three years, I have been active at Sirius in several committees, like the ExCie GZW, the SKI and the AXie. Besides my active role at Sirius, I play hockey at DHC (Drienerlose Hockey Club) and live together with six housemates nearby the centrum of Enschede.

During the Kick-In, I created a group of friends, with whom I studied for three years. This year, I am going to answer all the questions about education and studies related to Sirius. If you have any question (about education), you can ask me!

See you in the Sirius room!
