We’ve been quite busy sharing our work and insights with you on our Facebook page and site the last few months, so we felt it was a good time to look back on our most popular posts!

1. Why Lijst Calimero will vote against Yantai (January 29, 2018)
“The word is out: Lijst Calimero will be voting against Yantai. For us, it is clear that a vote against the campus in China is for the best for our university. In this article, we will explain to you why.”

2. Housing internationals? “It’s not my responsibility!” (October 26, 2017)
“You have probably heard something about it lately: problems with the housing of international students in Groningen. The municipality and the university keep passing the buck on this issue. Nobody seems to be able to solve the problem. But what are the true ins and outs of this problem?”

3. Sikkom’s Sword (November 30, 2017)
“Last Thursday, we discussed the annual report of the advisory committee on the introduction periods. While looking back at the past year, we wanted to speak about taking away board grants as a sanction.”

4. A proud musical moment for Lijst Calimero! (April 1, 2018)
“To make student participation at the University of Groningen more transparent, Lijst Calimero tries something different for once. Today, they are launching their very first album on Spotify. All new tracks contain parts of their new election programme.”

5. €50,000 extra for study associations in new board grant regulations (March 29, 2018)
“Good news! Lijst Calimero has managed to make €50.000 available for board members of study associations, in collaboration with the student assessor, CUOS and SOG! After the reassessment of last year, it appeared that study associations have grown bigger than that their compartment of the financial student support fund was equipped for. This made a rethink of the division of the support fund between the different types of associations necessary.”
