The student society of the Food Technology faculty, Nicolas Appert, will hold the title of most sportive society in Wageningen UR for a year. The food technologists were champions in the Battle of the Studies (BotS) last week.
The students of Nicolaas Appert had the best average score in all the events. They are the owners of a huge travelling trophy this year.
The nicest thing about the BotS, says Kim, is getting to know fellow students in another way. 'You do something other than sit in a lecture hall.' The games themselves also attracted attention in many ways. 'We tried all the time to make the events funnier than they would otherwise be. Hilarious acts with a twist.'
The number of registrations this year for the BotS was rather disappointing, concluded Thymos. 'Eighteen teams signed up, less than what we expected,' says Kim. 'It seemed that many study societies had also chosen this day for their activities. Things will be different again next year.'
