About the SOG
The SOG is an advocacy association for students at the University of Groningen and consists of a committee, a faction in the university council and various committees. The SOG represents the interests of all students to represent them in the University. The SOG has no political color, everyone should feel at home with the association.
In addition, the SOG is politically and socially conscious, and this is reflected in a social way; through its low threshold and the various activities organized. Also, the members of the faction and the board are informed of matters related to the University as well as facilities for students. This allows them to inform students about these issues and give them any advice.
This is our board!
