On this page, you’ll find some information about the committees that will be active in 2021-2022. Being in a committee can be a fun way to really get to know some of your fellow students! 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. Would you like to sign up for a committee, or maybe even more than one? Let us know by sending an email to!

LustrumCie (Lustrum Committee)

On April 9th 2022, T.W.I.S.T. will turn TWenty! To celebrate, this special committee (which exists only once every five years during the quinquennium!) will be organising all kinds of fun activities throughout the year. They will also make an almanac to mark the occasion.

This committee is responsible for the quarterly magazine of our association, the TWISTER. Of course, a magazine does not write itself! The committee members write articles, create linguistic puzzles and take care of the lay-out and distribution of the magazine. If you’d like to write something for the TWISTER, you can find all the information you need in their FAQ.

TripCie (Trip Committee)

TripCie 2019-2020

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, there was no TripCie in 2020-2021. 🙁

Because the VakanCie (see below) wasn’t enough already, the TripCie is responsible for organising a second, shorter trip abroad at the end of the year. In just a few days, you’ll get to know all about the destination’s culture and, of course, language!

VakanCie (Holiday Committee)

VakanCie 2019-2020

2020-2021: Tess Huijting, Anna Lina Litz, Merel Drop, Veronica Voevodina, Isaac Eaton

This committee is dedicated to organising an amazing holiday abroad every year. We step outside the Netherlands for an intriguing quest for culture and language. The VakanCie organise the entire trip by themselves, from the very first destination brainstorming to the accomodation, flights, and fun activities!
