Photo contest FSW Memories

Are you a great photographer? Or not at all, but you do have a photo that captures your specific memory at our Faculty? Join the Faculty's photo contest! We are looking for pictures by students, staff and alumni of the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences (Dutch abbreviated ‘FSW’) to bring together in the exposition ‘FSW Memories’.

Images of FSW Memories

Did you enjoy your EL CID last August or do you look back way further at memories during your time as a student? Do you still have photos of your time as a staff member when we still paid our coffee in guilders and would you like to share how research and teaching was done back in the days? Or do you still talk about that picture of that fieldwork trip, study association party or internship?
