Gerardus van der Leeuw has been the study association of the faculty of Religion, Culture and Society in Groningen since the 17th of April 2003. It is named after the first theologian to introduce religious studies to our university, and twenty years later we are still going strong! Every student at our faculty is welcome to become a member of our association. We love our faculty community and want to make our students feel happy and at home by organizing events like our yearly Christmas play, monthly borrels, parties, study sessions, pub lectures, and workshops for students and staff.

Gerardus sends weekly newsletters to all faculty students to keep everyone up to date about news items and upcoming events. Keep an eye out for that! And if you have any questions or ideas, or if you want to be added to the newsletter, please email us at

Lots of love,

The Gerardus board 2024/2025
