Old Committees: A Dive in the Archives

Committees have always been a significant workforce of a study association. Teams of students come together to contribute to their association. They could contribute in any form they are motivated for. Like, taking recent examples, organizing fun bonding activities such as drinks or ski trips, forming a platform to discuss study matters or crafting digital systems that are to be used by association members. Currently Scintilla has around 30 active committees which show their faces regularly around the association. ...

What is a Scintilla Committee and Why Should You Join One?

While the first (non-online) year of university almost always comes with many unique opportunities, each study usually has its own special perks.

The Dies Natalis of the 11th Lustrum

Each and every year, Scintilla celebrates their anniversary (AKA the Dies Natalis) on the 9th of September, or on any convenient Friday around that day. Usually accompanied by a tasty piece of cake, members come together in the old faithful Abscint to share a beer and celebrate the birthday of their study association. However, in 2020 the Dies Natalis was a little different, in more ways than one. This year Scintilla celebrates their 55th birthday, which means that this year we celebrate the 11th Lustrum year. ...
