The 14th of september it was time for the first Taylor drink of the year! After the introduction week and first week of studying this was a welcome relief for the first year students. The same was true for 2nd years, struggling with their literature studies. At 6 O´clock we gathered at city café the BAR/BAAR at the Prinsenhof with 50 HTE students to have some beers. There was a nice mix of old and new faces, with plenty of drinks to go around provided by the PME department. Full tables and lively discussions ensued. It was very ´gezellig´ to see a lot of people from the Taylor trip again and converse with the first years on their choices, the coming courses and my own experiences. At 10 O´clock we left the bar to have a spontaneous after party at a lovely students´ large apartment including a big deck. With snacks and drinks, a few Dutch classics, Spanish club music and a lot of dancing the evening was complete. It was a great start to the year. Looking forward to the next one!
