S.T.A.O. Alektoor

Alektoor is one of the best disputations of our faculty! In contrast to many rules and some rivalry at the other disputations, our motto: the truth: nobody will be the wiser, or in Dutch: no rooster will crow to that. Our disputation organizes ‘gezellige’ evening, with games, wine and good talks. Every three weeks Alektoor organizes an evening full of fun and friendliness. One member is the host(ess) and we all join for diner. We are very keen on our flexible evening activities. Gezelligheid is very important to us – the faculty is not just a place to study, but to build friendships as well!
