Thomas van Neerrijnen
Hi, my name is Thomas van Neerrijnen. I am 22 years old and currently in my 4th year of the bachelor's program International Business Administration. Generally, I am a bit of a late bloomer in the active student life. It was only in my 3rd year that I became active in various committees and a sorority at student association T.S.V. Plato. Additionally, I am also involved with 'We Activitate Tilburg' and Student Participation Association Front.
Looking back, becoming active in my 3rd year is something that I regret. The personal development and friendships that I have made during my active student life are so incredibly valuable and therefore, I would like to point out to every student how important it is to be an active student. The network and personal development opportunities that you get in the active student life are invaluable and every student should enjoy these benefits.
Therefore, next year, I want to focus on the recognition of the Active Student. Expanding and implementing Edubadges, a point system that recognizes extracurricular activities and the skills developed through them by universities and employers is my main goal. Do you want me to represent you on the university council next year? Then vote for Front #2 on April 11, 12, and 13.
