Dionne Veld

Chairman: Dionne Veld

Hi Sigmates!

My name is Dionne Veld, I am 20 years old and I am in my third year of studying chemistry. Although, for the upcoming year I will not be so busy studying, because will fill in the function of chair!

I grew up in a town called Culemborg, in the beautiful Betuwe. After attending high school I decided to move to Nijmegen. During the orientation I was made enthusiastic by my parents, but it wasn’t until I started going to borrels, that my love for sigma really started to grow. From then on, I hardly missed any activities. Soon after the academic year started I joined onecee and later on bacchus.

I do have hobbies besides sigma. As a sport I practice karate and I play the piano. I also love to simply chill with my friends. Furthermore, I am part of the scouting, I have been for more than ten years now!

I spend a lot of my time in Nijmegen, at uni or in the city center, so you’ll probably see me around. If you see me, do not hesitate to have a chat (on just about everything)! Of course, you are also welcome to contact me via email or whatsapp. 

I hope you are all as excited for this year as me!

With love,


Kiki Mes

Secretary: Kiki Mes

Dear Sigmates,

My name is Kiki Mes. I am a 21 year old, third year Chemistry students. I am the Secretary of V.C.M.W. Sigma the upcoming year. This means I take the minutes (I love my laptop) and I will respond to your emails. I love to work in the Board rooms which means you will find me there often.

This is my second board year, but even before that I had a whole life. I was born in Tilburg and when I started studying I did this in Nijmegen, but I started with pedagogical sciences. After one year I realized this wasn’t quite for me and that is when I switched to chemistry. I felt at home right away at the studies and at Sigma. In my first year I joined the StudyCee immediately and I’m still in there.

I do not live in Nijmegen anymore, but that won’t stop me from going to the occasional BeestFeest. And when I decide to finally go home I will be reading, gaming, doing some crafts. Besides this I love to cook and I mainly love to make soups!

I am beyond excited for this second year of doing Board and when you see me around, please don’t be afraid to come talk to me. I’m always open for a conversation. I hope to see many of you soon at one of our fun activities, in the Board rooms or the South Canteen.



Lucas van den Bosch

Treasurer: Lucas van den Bosch

Hello Sigmates,

My name is Lucas van den Bosch and I’m 19 years old. I am a second year MLS student and this year I will be the treasurer of V.C.M.W. Sigma, which means I will be managing all the money business of our study association. 

I am born in Nijmegen, but raised in a small village in Noord-Brabant called Reek. This isn’t that far away from Nijmegen, but since I like partying till late so much it was a good decision for me to move to a room here in Nijmegen. I really enjoy the city with it’s great ambiance and nice habitants and I would really recommend moving here.

I chose for MLS, because I wanted to study chemistry but not the hardcore version. This study is very nice since it has a twist of biology and almost no physics, which was not one of my best courses in high school. In my first year of the study, I was not very active within Sigma and only joined the Wecan’tcamp committee. And now in my second year a lot has changed, since I’m now part of Studycee, Wecan’tcamp and A-team and I’m also in the board. 

I do also have some hobbies that I like to practice in my free time. I play the euphonium, a big metal instrument the size of a baby bear, since I was 10 and am part of a Harmony Orchestra in my home town. I also have an electric guitar in my room, which I play for fun when I want to. I also love music from AC/DC and Iron Maiden.

Until next time,

Lucas van den Bosch

Arjen Achten

Commisioner Educational Affairs: Arjen Achten

Dear Sigmates,

My name is Arjen Achten. I’m 20 years old and I’m a fourth year Chemistry student. I’m Commissioner Educational Affairs of Sigma this year, which means I’m mostly busy with organising graduation ceremonies and making sure you can buy your books.

I was born at a very young age in the town of Wijchen, which despite being the size of a small city is technically a village. I’ve now spent most of my education in Nijmegen though, since my high school was also here. In my first year I was not active in Sigma, but in my second year I was a part of four committees, including A-team, Photon, LustrumCee and SOS. With LustrumCee being disbanded after the lustrum I was in three, but I joined Exchange in my third year bringing me back to four. I really enjoyed being a committee member, which is good since board is basically a much more involved committee.

When I’m not studying or doing board related tasks/activities I like to play games. By myself I play video games, though if you ever need to lure me into a trap a good board game also makes for great bait. When I’m not playing video games, it’s probably because I’m watching Drag Race instead. Aside from those things I also love sleep, which is why you will rarely see me (voluntarily) at university before 10. 

Now that you know me a little bit better I hope you won’t be nervous to ask me any questions you might have, either through e-mail or in person. The easiest way to contact us is either via the Sigma e-mail or to find us in the board rooms where we spend most of our time.

Hope to see you around,

Arjen Achten

Jeroen Meertens 

Commisioner External Affairs: Jeroen Meertens

Dearest, loveliest, funniest Sigmate!

Hopefully you are not tired of me yet, because you see me on this website page yet again! Another year, another board, and I could not be more excited.

My name is Jeroen Meertens, I am 21 years old and I am a third year MLS student. Originally I come from Zevenaar, but during my first year I started living here in Nijmegen in a student house.

This year I will be fullfilling the role of Commissioner of External Affairs of V.C.M.W. sigma. That means I will be responsible for getting sponsoring money for the association but also to try and make the gap between students and companies smaller! Hopefully I will do well ;p

If you ever want to talk to me about anything you can practically always find me either in the South Canteen or in the South Boardroom above the canteen! Feel free to ask me anything :)

See you around!

Jeroen Meertens

Lynn Vis

Commisioner Activities: Lynn Vis

Dearest Sigmates,

My name is Lynn Isa Vis (Lynn Is a Vis lol) and I am currently 21 years old. I am already in my fourth year of MLS, but this year my study will not be the main activity in my life, because this year I will be the Commissioner Activities of the 47th board of V.C.M.W. Sigma.

I am from a little town in the east of the Netherlands, called Haaksbergen; a place in which people take off their pants when ABBA is played at a party lol. Sometimes, when I am drinking with friends, you can even hear my Twentse accent (a bit). After graduating from high school during the corona year, I started my study in Nijmegen. Even though the studying was online, I still joined Bacchus. This is where the seed for my love for Sigma was planted.

In my free time I like to play the violin, read books, make puzzles and karaoke. I also like to go for a swim or do a ticket hour at the Radboud sportcentre. And I am always ready for an evening with my friends, whether it is for going out or for a game night!

If you have any questions or if you just want to chat with me; you can mostly find me in our beautiful South canteen or the board rooms.
Hope to see you around!

Lots of love,

Lynn Vis
