Meet the board!

Ilija Sibin Milutin

Hey everybody!

My name is Ilija Sibin Milutin and 22 years old. Currently I’m in my fifth year here at the Faculty of Science and now I’m in my second year of the Particle and Astrophysics master. After being an very active member of the student association of physics, S.V. Marie Curie, I decided to become secretary of Marie Curie last year. Since I enjoyed this a lot (and did not want to leave the boards rooms just yet) and because I wanted to do more for the beta students, I applied for another board year. And now here I am, the new chairman of Olympus!

Next to being an active member at Marie Curie, I like to pick up a drink with friends and collect plants to slowly turn my room into a jungle.

As the chairman I will lead all meetings and keep an overview of everything that is happening within Olympus.

It certainly is going to be a very unique and challenging year in these uncertain times, but I am certain that this will be an amazing and successful year with this fantastic board.

I you have questions for me, you can contact me at zeus.olympus at or, when it is possible again, roaming around the board rooms and student canteens!

Matthijs Sparreboom

Hi there!

My name is Matthijs Sparreboom, I am 21 years old and a third year Artificial Intelligence student. I am this year’s secretary of Olympus! 

I was born in a small village near Leiden. After I moved to Nijmegen I immediately fell in love with this city. In my first year I was not an active member of CognAC because I wanted to focus on getting my BSA. In my second year I became active and loved it. I knew I wanted to do something more than only being an active member and that’s when Olympus caught my attention. I applied for becoming a board member, and now here we are!

Besides being a board member and my studies, I spend most of my time with social activities. This can be going to the soos or just having some drinks in the city. You can also find me from time to time in the RSC but that does not happen on a regular basis.

This year I will be responsible for buying all the drinks and food that our members use during their activities. If you have any questions, you can email me at demeter.olympus at

Sietske Dijkstra

Hi There!

My name is Sietske, I am 21 years old, currently a fourth year biology student and Olympus’s new treasurer! This means I am in charge of setting up the budget, processing invoices and paying the bills. Additionally, I will take minutes of all meetings and keep track of the mail to lighten the burden of Matthijs.

Next to being an active member within my own study association, BeeVee, I wanted to do more for all bètas. As I was already experiencing some study delay, it seemed like the perfect time to take some extra tasks upon me. This is why I decided to do a board year in Olympus!

In my free time I like to hang out with friends, play video games and to keep myself busy with drawing or reading. I’m curious what next year will bring us, and excited to make this year a wonderful one. I hope to see you around and take care in the meantime! If you have any questions for me, you can contact me via hades.olympus at

Anna Wessel

Hi everyone,

My name is Anna Wessel. I am currently 21 years old. This year I will be finishing my biology bachelor and also starting the master Conservation and Restoration Ecology. In 2017 I started my studies here in Nijmegen and I quickly became an active member of BeeVee, going to borrels, activities and also joining the side committee. After three years of focusing on my studies I thought it would be nice to do something more and the opportunity of a board year for Olympus came up.

This year I will be the Chief of faculty affairs for Olympus. This means that I will keep the contact between the faculty, Olympus and our members. I also make sure that the canteens and board rooms are cleaned properly

In my free time I love to play rugby for my team at Obelix, drink some beers and observing nature (definitely a green biologist at hart). 

If you need me you can reach me at hestia.olympus at or if the uni is fully accessible again you can find me hanging around the canteens.

Jules van der Molen

Hello there,

I am Jules and I am the Chief of Activities of the 25th board of Olympus. I am 24 years old and I come from Arnhem. I am a fifth year biology student, mainly interested in cellular biology. In my spare time I play a lot of guitar or work out by playing flunkyball. However most of my time is spend on BeeVee, where I am part of 3 committees and a former board member, and now Olympus. Being the Chief of Activities in these times is an interesting affair. I hope I will be bringing modern solutions to these modern problems. This way our board will host the best activities we van under the circumstances.

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
