Throughout the year, Mollier organizes many activities. The board itself cannot do this alone and likes to cooperate with its members to make sure everybody is learning and having fun! Therefore, committees are created and they are responsible for organizing certain activities. As a reward for joining a committee you will get eternal gratitude from the board and the members of Mollier, as well as an official invitation to the yearly Active Member BBQ. On top of that, you will earn a set amount of activity points for each committee you join!
If you want more information about a certain committee or are thinking about joining one or more committees, feel free to contact our Commissioner of Activities at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Start / End activity committee
At the start and end of the academic year, Mollier organizes the start and end activity. During this event, Mollier members go away for the weekend to a secret location determined by the committee. If all goes well, the participants have no idea where they go until they arrive at the destination. The weekend consists of activities on or around the location with good company of your fellow Mollier members! Past activities ranged from sheep herding through surfing to board games and laid-back quizzes.
INSide information committee
Two times a year Mollier releases a magazine called the INSide information. This is a magazine of Mollier and the Unit BPS, made by our lovely INSide Information committee. It provides information about Mollier activities and its members. Furthermore, it features articles of projects by students of the unit BPS. Building Acoustics, Lighting, Materials, Performance, Physics and Services, every chair of the unit BPS is represented in our magazine.
Study trip committee
Every year, Mollier will go to an amazing location with their members. For example, previous years’ study trips all over the globe to from Brazil to Korea and USA to Russia. During the trip we will visit companies and universities as well as touristic attractions and have plenty of free time to enjoy the trip! Feel free to join the committee and get your spot fixed for this amazing trip.
Throughout the year, lunch lectures are organized where sponsors of Mollier will come by during lunch to talk about the company or interesting projects they have worked on. During these presentation(s) Mollier provides lunch. The task of the committee is helping with the setup of the meeting room, buying ingredients and preparing the food. While the COVID regulations are in place, these lectures are held online, and a pizza is provided to each participant. You can assist the committee with minor administrations.
Beer tasting committee
For our beer lovers and enthusiasts there is the yearly beer tasting. The committee is trusted with selecting the beers that will be served. There is space for creativity, feel free to make this year’s edition a one to remember.
Cocktail party committee
Every February the famous Mollier cocktail party is organized. A fine selection of drinks and bites selected by the committee will be served. There rest of the party is up to the imagination of the organizers, for example a theme with Venetian masks.
Mollier organizes a Unit BPS Exhibition. Last year’s exhibition unfortunately got cancelled but is set up for this academic year. Every chair, so students and researchers from BPS sometimes in corporation with companies, showcase their most interesting projects and products. The goal of the exhibition is to inform more students about BPS and in turn encourage them to pick BPS as their specialization.
After the postponed exhibition of last year, a new exhibition will take place this academic year. We are looking for members who want to help creating interesting exhibition pieces. The work will consist of contacting faculty members to arrange projects and creating a professional design for the whole exhibition. Also working hands to build up the exhibition are welcome.
During the Meet&Greet, sponsors of Mollier will talk about their company in a very informal way. Students can come to this event to find out more about the companies, internships and job opportunities! The committee is responsible for organizing the Meet&Greet event and making sure that all goes smoothly.
We are the ones who get to spread that sweet, sweet knowledge! We promote fun and educational activities on social media. We maintain the Mollier website, Facebook page and Instagram account. If you are interested in making graphics, creating entertaining posts, or promoting the work of your colleagues online; join us! (Pssst, we also have a podcast in the works.)
Once every 5 years there is a lustrum to celebrate and this year Mollier is turning 25. The lustrum year will be opened with a large drink. Later that year there is a symposium with innovative speakers. The year will be closed with a large gala to mark the end of the celebrations of our 25th anniversary.
We may not have fish, but we have plants! They’re pretty fun too. If you love plants, you’re welcome to join!
