I’m Austin! I am a 23-year-old student of religious studies and will be the Committee Coordinator (ComCo!) for our glorious association this year. I was born and raised in Berkeley, California, and moved to the Netherlands when I was 18, finishing high school at the International School Groningen and then starting university at the RUG. In my free time, I enjoy playing rugby, camping, bicycle touring, and hiking. I also work part-time in a local restaurant and am an active member of the lovely Dispute M.A.T.A.
As the ComCo this year my goal is to revitalize the committees that have faded out some due to the coronavirus restrictions, as well as make sure there are spaces for anyone who would like to be involved, and for any level of desired commitment. I will also be promoting the famed Committee Battle that was started by my predecessor Marleen in order to increase activities and involvement throughout the faculty!
If anyone would like to join a committee or would just like more information about them, please do not hesitate to reach out
