Chairman: Lynn Vis

Dearest Sigmates,

My name is Lynn Isa Vis (Lynn Is a Vis lol) and I am 20 years old. I am currently in my third year of MLS, but this year my study will not be the main activity in my live, because this year I will be the chairman 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 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. I also like to go for a swim or do a ticket hour at the Radboud sportcentre. I am also always in for an old-school board game night.

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

Lots of love,

Lynn Vis

Arjen Achten

Secretary: Arjen Achten

Dear Sigmates,

My name is Arjen Achten. I’m 19 years old and I’m a third year Chemistry student. I’m Secretary of Sigma this year, which means I’m mostly busy with administration, taking minutes and managing e-mails.

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’m now in three committees. I really enjoyed being a committee member, which is good since board is basically a committee that takes way more work.

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

Treasurer: Jeroen Meertens

Dear Sigmates,

Everybody always starts this text with saying who they are, how old they are, you know the stuff. But since I am not like the rest I will start by telling you that you should come to Zuid. Okay so, my name is Jeroen Meertens. This year will be my second year in MLS. Don’t let this fool you though, because after only getting 33 EC in my first year I’m still a Sjaars. This year I am the treasurer of the 46th board of V.C.M.W. Sigma. This means that I will be busy with all of the financial stuff regarding Sigma.

I grew up in a small town called Zevenaar, a city in the east of the Netherlands. I had lived in Zevenaar for 20 beautiful years, so it was time for something more exciting. After studying MLS for half a year I decided to move to Nijmegen. Sprinting for the last train back home at least twice a week and sleeping at friends places the other evenings made me have no other choice. Luckily I only had to look for a few months to find a very nice room.

MLS was the first and only study I have ever done. I had a lot of problems choosing what study program I wanted to do and also which university I wanted to study at. Finally with 1 day remaining before the deadline I decided to sign up for MLS. Looking back at my first year, this was the best decision I could have made. I really love the studies and the people here.

From the orientation week onward I tried to attend as many activities as possible. I really enjoy meeting everyone and doing fun stuff together. In my first year I joined the committees OneCee and Bacchus. The latter of which I am the chair of this year!

In my free time I like to play football and I play a little bit of guitar. Next to that you can find me in the TKB very often singing along to the best Katy Perry and Taylor Swift songs. I hope to see you guys around this year!

Greetings at home,

Jeroen Meertens

Kiki Mes

Commissioner Educational and Social Affairs: Kiki Mes

Dear Sigmates,

My name is Kiki Mes. I am 20 years old and a second year chemistry student. I will be the commissioner educational and social affairs of V.C.M.W. Sigma the upcoming year. Since this is a new function, I have a lot of freedom with what I want to do, which I love! I will organize educational activities, but will manage our social media platforms as well, so you will be up-to-date with all our activities.

I obviously had a whole life before Sigma. 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.

When I’m not thinking about Sigma, chances are high I’m playing some games on my Nintendo Switch, so please let me know which games you love. I also love to cook and everyone is welcome to eat with me, I always make too much.  

I am beyond excited for the upcoming year 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 or in the South Canteen!

Commissioner External Affairs: Dionne Veld

Hi Sigmates!

My name is Dionne Veld, and I am in my second year of chemistry. I am technically still 18 years old, but my birthday is coming up very soon. :) For the upcoming year I will fill in the function of commissioner external affairs. In short, this means that I will be in charge of sponsoring and contact with companies.

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 practise 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 almost ten years now!

I am almost always at uni, so you’ll probably see me around. If you see mee, 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 exited for next year as me!

With love,
