Inter-Actief celebrates its 8th lustrum! »
On March 12th, 1981, Inter-Actief was founded, and so, today, we celebrate the 8th lustrum of our association!
The Lustrum committee has worked towards this day for some time now, and has prepared some nice festivities for you to take part in, even during these weird corona times.
Of course, the birthday boy or girl hands out treats. So, this morning, you can send in your name and address at https://ictsv.nl/secret and a LuCie member might drop by to drop of a present! Furthermore, this afternoon we would like to gather on Discord to toast to the Lustrum together at 4 o’clock. Make sure to be online a bit before 16:00 as our toast will be live at 16:00 at https://ictsv.nl/lustrumsalute!
Lastly, tonight, we organize the Thales Mixelate Workshop. After the success of the previous online cocktail workshop a lot of people requested another one, so we have arranged for our master mixer and bartender Prem to guide you through the workshop tonight. Make sure you check whether all ingredients have been provided to you beforehand, and if not, send us an email at email@example.com. The workshop starts at 20:00 and a link to the stream will be provided tonight!
Congrats on the Lustrum and we hope you have a great day!

For this we need your help, if you know of a lecturer that deserves such an award, you can fill out the form below to nominate them.

Committee for Education Evaluation Panels »
The OEC has organized panel meetings to assess the quality of education. As the main language for BIT and TCS is changed to English the OEC is renamed into CEEP.
OEC is now CEEP!
For over 20 years, the OEC has organized panel meetings to assess the quality of education and gather feedback from students. A few years ago, the educational programmes Business & IT and Technical Computer Science switched their main language to English. Up until now, the OEC had continued under the same name as ever, though more and more using their abbreviation as a nickname, slowly moving away from the Dutch name Onderwijsevaluatiecommissie.
At some point, we decided that this name was not up to date anymore and an English one should be chosen. This is why we hereby introduce you to the new OEC, the CEEP (Committee for Education Evaluation Panels). Structurally, not much has changed, but where you previously saw OEC we will now use CEEP in all our correspondence. Also, our website-URL has been updated to utwente.nl/ceep-cs-bit and we will happily receive emails from you at firstname.lastname@example.org. For now, the old addresses should also remain active, but they will probably be phased out at some point, and to prevent confusion we will clarify in the first public announcements that the CEEP is formerly known as the OEC.
We hope to see you soon at one of our panel evaluations!
Best regards, Niels de Groot Secretary CEEP
