Mini Mundi Review

By Elise Mertens and Cas Visser Perhaps you have seen it from the road when entering Middelburg by car, or maybe you have only heard rumours about it. A mere 15 minutes from the city centre by bike lies a place of endless fun and joy: Mini Mundi. After more than three years of living…

The Musical Show of UCR

By Florence Mazzetti A hall, a stage, a microphone. Songs swinging through the air, telling the audience how to feel. An ever-changing atmosphere led by performances, where silent messages are spread across the room. Open Mics at De Spot give UCR students exclusive experiences, ranging from listening to local performers to going on stage for…

Take a Bite

By Alisa Adams Contributions by UCR students Living in Middelburg can be pretty tough when it comes to finding activities. The question what to do in town is not always an easy one. Well, the best (almost the only) answer is to Eat! What is truly better than eating great food when you have the…

Remembrance of the Sun

by Alisa Adams Three months into the summer break, I have, surprisingly, found myself missing the regularity and consistency of class (a lot of people might be cringing at this opening sentence). It is true, though: there is so much pressure surrounding the summer and what exciting and exotic things everyone will be up to….

A Walker’s Guide to Middelburg

We students live the busiest of lives. Continuously running around from place to place, struggling to stay on top of our coursework, and doing our best to upkeep a social life as well; it becomes easy to get into a routine of class-study-eat-sleep, forgetting to take a breather in between.

Evening of the Tiny Stage

By Mieke Pressley Every once in a while, I have to stop and stand in awe of all the incredible talent you can find at our university. People here are often so multi-talented, and furthermore, also so humble about it, that you cannot help but be impressed. It was with this talent in mind, that…

Suffragettes in Zeeland

By Judith Brouwer Whether its shooting the man who refuses to pay alimony, dressing up as a soldier to fight the French, or running for city council despite your party not believing in the involvement of women in politics; my favorite part of history has always been discovering individuals’ stories, such as these, in different…

The Beauty of Difference – II

By Andrea Undecimo Life in Middelburg is very different from that in Ho Chi Minh. Quite a banality, one could say. But what does it really mean to move from the noise and cheerfulness of the Asian city to the quietness and tidiness of Middelburg? What impacts does such a change have on one’s personality;…

Is Science Undemocratic?

by Andrea Undecimo A new truth has emerged: science is not democratic. This is at least what a famous Professor of Microbiology and Virology at the University of Milan, Roberto Burioni, has proposed in his book, published last year, whose title could be roughly translated as “The conspiracy of the ignorant: why science cannot be…

The Beauty of Difference – I

By Andrea Undecimo Being so used to the diversity that forms our small University, we sometimes forget what it really means to come from a different background, to have had another upbringing from ours and ultimately to see the world from a different perspective. Part of the educational process is, I believe, to put oneself…

A Week on the Red Carpet

By Andrea Undecimo The thought of people walking down red carpets in elegant dresses, a rich selection of premiere movies from all around the world, and juries that must present awards for the best movies. All this is usually associated with the glamour of Hollywood or the sophistication of the Cannes and Venice festivals, but…
