Summer Issue 2019

Travel. A lot of you probably have the USA study trip to San Francisco fresh in your memories (for a trip down memory lane, turn to pages 12 and 13). There are also many of you who are preparing for a semester in the U.S. next year. Ask anyone who went on exchange and they […]

Spring Issue, 2019

Power. As George Orwell put it: We know that no one ever seizes it with the intention of relinquishing it. However, after two years of controlling all three branches of government, the Republican Party had to cede its majority in the House of Representatives as a result of the electoral victories of a new generation […]

Winter Issue, 2018

Change. It is the only thing that is constant. While this might sound contradictory, it actually makes sense when you look at the world. Change is happening all around us, just consider that 2018 is almost coming to an end and 2019 is waiting around the corner. Our very own Sander Nederveen experienced quite a […]

Fall Issue 2018

We’re back! While the members of USA Nijmegen are studying hard to prepare for their midterms, citizens in the USA are preparing for an even more important event: the Midterm Elections. Master’s student Tristan Vlerick takes us through the projections of these elections and their implications for the future of the United States.   Another […]

Lustrum Issue 2018

Finally, the moment you’ve all been waiting for: The Lustrum week is (almost) here! Although we’ve been enjoying all the wonderful events that were organized by the Lustrum Committee for months now, the party’s just beginning. This special year doesn’t just deserve its own week, but of course also its very own Issue. So instead […]

Spring Issue 2018

It’s Spring! The bitter coldness of February has (hopefully) subsided and this means beautiful flowers start blooming again. Have you ever wondered which flower you’d be? Wouter Peer’s horoscope at the end of this Issue settles this once and for all. Two months ago, spaceflight company Space X launched a car in the direction of […]

the Issue Winter 2017

It’s (almost) the most wonderful time of the year: Christmas time. The perfect time to set aside our differences and get together, preferably near a fireplace, with good food and warm lights. Of course there’s more than one way to celebrate this holiday. Matthijs Koster takes us to the swamps of Louisiana for a Christmas […]

The Issue Fall 2017

It’s autumn, which is also known as fall, and for a good reason; leaves, temperatures, rain (maybe even a bit of snow), the Trump administration, they’re all falling down. Looking back at the last 10 months, it seems impossible that Trump is still in office (on his non-golfing days anyway). Although many cabinet members and […]

Summer Issue

Quite a number of you, me included, are getting ready for a semester in the US or Canada. This whole preparation process can be quite stressful and overwhelming. Luckily, USA Nijmegen has a lot of members, including some of our writers, who have already been abroad and lived to tell the tale. Linda van Rooij […]

Spring Issue

Chaos. This is perhaps the only word that can accurately describe the state of the union. Luckily, Issue writers have once again tried their best to make sense of the political turmoil that has plagued the US during the first 100 days of the Trump presidency. One the administration’s most controversial actions, the immigration ban […]
