FASoS students in photoshoot Robin de Puy

Photographer Robin de Puy was asked by UM’s Arts and Heritage committee to create an artwork for the Tapijnkazerne’s carré building.

For this artwork, Robin de Puy decided to photograph a diverse group of students. Among this group were two FASoS students, one from BA European Studies and one from BA Arts and Culture.

The photograph will be printed on a large sun screen, covering a 30-meter glass front. The artwork will be revealed on 2 March, when the carré building will be officially opened.

Reminder: sanitary products at FASoS

Last year, the student representatives came with a great initiative: to place sanitary products at FASoS toilets to use in case you forgot them.

Please remember that this initiative is run on a community basis – so we can’t succeed without your help! If you use one of the products, please remember to replace the product later as it runs on a take-one-leave-one system.
