The first day of the new period saw the usual crowds queuing for the WUR shop. Student party VeSte handed out coffee, tea and biscuits to the waiting students.
Large numbers of students pick up their books from the WUR shop on the first day of the new period. Which inevitably leads to long queues. Student party VeSte thinks both students and lecturers could do something to ease the situation, says Willemijn Sneller. 'Some lecturers only reveal what material is needed for the following period at the last minute. They could do that sooner. And students should make sure they have their book codes and money ready. We are using this action to point that out to them.'
The university will be starting a pilot scheme in the fourth period with an electronic ordering system. The hope is that this will make the long queues for the WUR shop a thing of the past.
