Committees are where we work our magic. Committees are small groups of students that like to organise events and activities for other internationally-minded students. Students often consider it very rewarding work and see it as very useful to develop skills such as teamwork, intercultural communication, and problem-solving. Any member of ESN Nijmegen can become a committee member, so we invite you to join in! It is great fun and an amazing way for making your time in Nijmegen more awesome! 

What's in it for you? An amazing life experience, meeting new people, getting yourself out there and working from behind the scene of a student organisation! Oh and did we mention the curriculum boost that comes with it? Interested in one of the committees listed below or want to know more about it?
