Meet the board!

Sander van Akkeren

Hello everyone!

My name is Sander van Akkeren, I am 22 years old, and I am the current chair of Olympus. I am a fifth year biology student. More specifically, I am in my second year of the master Conservation & Restoration Ecology. For a few years now I’ve also been active within BeeVee as a member (and now also chair) of SPIn, the website committee.

When I am not busy chairing I like to play games with my friends. One of my favorite ones is Dungeons and Dragons, which I also host as the “Dungeon Master” for my group of friends. I also occasionally read books ant take my racing bike out for a trip.

As the new chairman I will lead the board meetings and be the umbrella of the umbrella association, overseeing everything that happens in Olympus. I will also be busy with general action points and meeting with the other associations board members.

This year we will be focusing on getting the new canteens up and running again, which we are all very excited for. Together with my fellow board members we will make it an absolutely fantastic year.

If you have any questions for me, you can always reach me at zeus.olympus at or approach me in the board rooms.

Lucas Baakman

I’m Lucas, 23 years old, currently the secretary of Olympus, and a fifth year biology student in my spare time. I grew up in Nijmegen, like to hang out with friends, play (video)games or read a book every now and then.
I’ve been fairly involved in the study association life here, having previously done a board year for BeeVee and being active in various committees. I’ve also been enjoying the activities that Olympus organises, such as the BeestFeest or the Movie Night, having not missed any of them bar any illness getting in the way. And well, before you know it you find yourself being interviewed for a role in the next board of Olympus.
It’s going to be loads of fun, at least I’m looking forward to the coming year. If you have any question you can probably find me hanging around the board rooms, or just send me an email at: Hermes.olympus at

Mark Eijkmans

Hi everyone!

My name is Mark Eijkmans and I am 22 years old. I am currently a fifth year Biology student. I have been living in Nijmegen for a year now, and like to hang out with friends, party and learn interesting facts about the world (did you know for example that our current civilization is closer to the Roman Empire than Old Egypt and the first pyramids were?).

As Chief of Faculty Affairs, I manage the new canteens and the boardrooms of the study associations. These can be found in wing 5 of the Huygens building nowadays. I also listen to comments and complaints of students of the faculty.

As a Biology student, I’m also a member of BeeVee. There, I am part of the travelling committee BOS, which organizes a trip abroad for Biology students once a year. I was also part of the 36th board of BeeVee, back in 2021.

I’m looking forward to meeting many of you the coming year! If you have any questions or remarks for me, don’t hesitate to contact me via hestia.olympus at or by visiting me at the boardrooms.

See you around!

Herman Adriaensen

My name is Lord Herman of Sealand, I’m the current Chief of Activities for Olympus.
I’m currently in my 3rd year of the AI Bachelor. Besides my studies and board activities you can find me at my local scouting as a volunteer, working on some carpentry project or playing D&D.
As chief of activities my main role within Olympus is to organise activities for the members of our member associations to enjoy together. Activities such as the Movie night or the Beergarten and of course BeestFeest. As the god of wine, you of course must like a good party, and I definitely fit that bill. So far my role has been a great new challenge for me with lots of opportunities to learn and grow!
As for where you can find me, I can be mostly found in and around the board rooms with me occasionally popping up at a Monthly Meeting.

For any questions you can reach me at: dionysos.olympus at

Hi my name is Bobby, I’m the chief of good boys.
I like forest walks and eating cheese. I’m also the cutest doormat around since I love laying right in the entrance and then look very shocked when I have to move.
