On this page, you’ll find some information about the committees that are tasked with organising T.W.I.S.T.’s activities. Being in a committee can be a fun way to really get to know some of your fellow students! Besides that, it is also very fun to be part of a committee, you acquire skills that you won’t learn anywhere else and you get to know yourself better.
It generally takes up between two and five hours a week of your time, but how dedicated you are as a committee member is up to you (and depends on the committee). There are also ‘peak committees’, like the ConferenCie and LustrumCie. These committees organize bigger activities, and will be busier during this period than other moments of the year.
