To help you decide what committee would fit you and your interests best, here is a small overview of our committees:

Buurlandenreis committee: Every year the CDL visits one of our neighbouring countries, coming year the trip will go to Belgium! Do you want to organise a trip which contains visits to companies and universities as well as cultural outings? Then this committee suits you. This committee is only for second year students (next year!). 

EJWcie: The EJWcie is responsible for organising the introduction weekend for all upcoming first year students of MST. It is a shared committee with the TG and this is one of the most demanding committees we have to offer. Especially because you will spend the better part of the summer working on this weekend, but ask anyone who has organised the EJW, it is worth it! This committee is also only open for students who will go into their second year next year.

FotoCie: A very low-intensity committee which basically provides the board with some trusted people to hand the camera during CDL activities. So are you often present at activities and do you like to shoot some pictures? Then give up interest for the FotoCie.

Master committee: Like the name suggests, this committee organised activities for master students, by master students. These events are not only recreational, but some of then also have a career minded character. Examples of activities are a beer tasting and brewery tour, an international potluck dinner, a 'PhD or not to PhD' orientation evening, lunch lectures, etc. 

ArchiefCie: Would you like to dive into the history of the CDL while helping us organise our archive and digitize past editions of the Chimica? Then join the ArchiefCie! Experience shows that the nights spent in the archive are usually paired with recreational activities and drinks!

Chimica: You have undoubtedly seen our association magazine, the Chimica Acta Lugduni, appear on your doorstep a few times a year. The Chimica editorial board is always looking for more creative students who want to help with collecting stories, writing articles, working on design and creating a cover. In addition you will obtain skills working with InDesign and Photoshop!  

CollectCie: In the past years, the CollectCie has chosen a cause for which they collect money throughout the year. For example by organising lunches or selling snacks during Thursday drinks. Coming year, in addition to supporting a charity, other things will be done in the spirit of social awareness. 

FeminiCie: The FeminiCie is a committee in which female students organise activities for other female students, and these can be anything! A highlight of the year is the Ladies Career Night, during which female representatives of companies will join you during a dinner and share their stories about their careers and current work. 

OJWcie: One of the most fun weekends of the year is the OJW. During the OJW, all second year students and older are invited to spent the weekend together. There are usually some activities planned, but the main objective is just to hang out together and have fun!

There are a lot of different ways in which we do this, one of them is the College Response Committees (CRC), these are groups of students from each year who come together twice in an educational period to talk about their subjects. The commissioner of education will then communicate the outcomes to the director of education and our educational committee.
