ISOW proud to be biggest student society
The ISOW committee felt like opening a bottle of champagne when University
Rector Bert Speelman referred to ISOW as the biggest official student
organisation in Wageningen during the new year reception on 14 January. The
legalisation of ISOW has given the organisation a clear identity, thinks
president Arun Mishra. The next goal is to become more independent.
Eventually ISOW should have the same status as the Dutch student
organisations. Getting ISOW registered as a legal entity was necessary,
according to president Arun Mishra. “We are one of the biggest student
societies in town. We had to become more structured and legalisation was
the first step. We wanted to make our voice more pronounced, and that won’t
happen if you don't have a clear identity.
