Mathijs van Kilsdonk

Hi there!

21 years ago my parents called me Mathijs van Kilsdonk, and my friends called Mari van Pilsbonk 3 years ago. Right now I’m in the fourth year of my bachelor Science, and I hope to wrap that up this year. Besides being an exemplary (read procrastinating) student, I was an active member of the study association of Science: S.V. Leonardo da Vinci. After doing a board year as Commissioner of Internal affairs at this cosy association, I wasn’t done with spending time in the boardrooms at all. That, combined with the fact that I was up to a more serious challenge, drove me to apply for another board year; at Olympus this time.

Besides this new challenge, I will continue being an active member at Leonardo and see the inside of a train a lot on my way to Utrecht, where I’ll be following a Psychology minor.

It’s safe to say that I am excited for the upcoming year, and I am confident that it will be a successful year with this beautiful board.

If you have questions for me, you can either find me in the Huygens building or contact me at zeus.olympus at science.ru.nl

Jenneke Vos

Hi everybody!

My name is Jenneke Vos, I’m 20 years old, a second year science student and, most importantly, next year I will be the secretary of Olympus.

I came to Nijmegen in 2018 in the orientation and immediately felt right at home at the study association from science: Leonardo da Vinci! I became an active member after the Christmas break by joining the activity committee and soon found out that I liked to be involved within the association. In this first year I truly fell in love with the bèta atmosphere, so much actually that I decided to do a board year at Olympus! As the secretary of Olympus I will be managing the mail, making minutes and bringing the newspaper to the canteens every day

Next to my board I spend my free time at the gymnastics association or drinking one or more drinks with my friends. If you have a question you can find me walking around at the university, in the board rooms or canteens, or you could always send me a question at olympus at science.ru.nl

Jan van Bommel

Hey everyone!

My name is Jan van Bommel, although most of you probably know me as Jank. This year I will be the treasurer of the 24th board of Olympus!

I’m born in the by many called not so beautiful province of Limburg, more specifically a small town called Blerick. Currently I’m a 5th year Computing Science student. Last year I was the chairman of Study Association Thalia and I decided one board year wasn’t enough for me.

As treasurer, I’m in charge of the money of Olympus and keep track of invoices and and all other transactions. Hopefully I can make sure Olympus won’t go bankrupt.

In my spare time I like to play video games, have some fun with friends by having one or more drinks and watch or play football. I have to get rid of the board kilos somehow, am I right?

So if you have any question on what the role of treasurer means, any question about Olympus in general or if you just want to 1v1 me in League of Legends, feel free to find me or send an email to hades.olympus at science.ru.nl

Barend Mijzen

Hey dear readers,

My name is Barend Mijzen, 20 years old, i’m from Eindhoven (de gekste) and a third year biology student. Next to being a fulltime biologist in heart and soul, I also like to drink beer, play board games and take theater classes.

This year a have the privilege to be the Chief of faculty affairs for Olympus. Which means that I will keep the contact between the faculty and Olympus and its members. I also will come after you if you didn’t clean up the board rooms or canteens, so sometimes the less you hear of me the better ;).

Since the beginning of my study i have been an active member of BeeVee. Going to most their activities and becoming the chairman of one of their committees. Beside this i felt i wanted to do something more. So when the idea of a board year for Olympus came up, it was just the thing I was looking for. Without hesitation i signed up.

If you need me, you can most likely find me somewhere around the Huygens building chilling with a cup of coffee or a beer in the canteens or boardrooms. If I can’t be found anywhere, you can always reach me at hestia.olympus at science.ru.nl.

Renske Baten

Hi there,

I am Renske Baten, I am 20 years old and I am a second year Artificial Intelligence student. I was born and raised in Enschede, but fell in love with Nijmegen immediately. This year I will be the chief of Activities of Olympus.

In my orientation week I was introduced to the study association of my study: S.V. CognAC, and decided to join the first years committee (1C). I loved it, but wanted to do more. Half a year later I joined the travel committee (TraC), weekend committee (WkC), and the almanac committee (AlmanaC). After a few months I still felt like I wanted to do more, and was informed about a board year with Olympus. I thought it sounded like lots of fun, and decided to join.

This year I will be responsible for the amazing activities Olympus organizes. So you will most likely see me walking around at BeestFeest, Biergarten, the Movie night, and all our other activities. I hope to see you there!

When I am not at uni I like to read, watch lots of Netflix, play games (I am a tiny bit competitive), and hang with friends.

If you have any suggestions for new activities, or have any other questions you can tell/ask me in person or email me at dionysos.olympus at science.ru.nl


Bibian Bennink

Hi there,

My name is Bibian Bennink, I am 21 years old and a third year Artificial Intelligence student. I am this year’s General Board Member for Olympus! Originally I come from a small town, Deventer, where I have lived most of my life, except for the six months I was an au-pair and skiing teacher in Switzerland.

When I started my studies here in Nijmegen I immediately joined SV CognAC where I became an active member by joining the discussion committee and the orientation committee. During my second year I continued being an active member, but I wanted more! Then Olympus came around the corner and it was exactly what I was looking for!

Next to my studies and board year I spend my time joining my friends in their amazing (and sometimes crazy) ideas, swimming or going to the movies. Since my brother is currently a skiing teacher I also try to visit him as often as possible and hit the slopes with him.

If you have a question for me, you can probably find me in or around the Huygens building or contact me at demeter.olympus at science.ru.nl
