The city of Groningen has a student environment worth standing for. We make it our prerogative to preserve what is so important to us as students at the RUG. We believe in an international university with excellent education and the flexibility for students to be able to take on challenges outside their study. This for us creates well rounded students ready for the outside world.

Joining the SOG has truly been an invaluable experience! Not only did I get to look into the policy making structure of the University, but also had the chance to bring in new ideas and represent students on an University level! I can truly recommend this experience to any student that wants to make their ideas heard and gain various new skills in different fields!
