Evi Nijhof

I started studying in Enschede four years ago and became a member of D.R.V. Euros. For two years I was a student athlete, meaning I was training 12 hours a week to represent my rowing club ánd University at national regattas. It wasn’t always easy to combine my ambition for rowing with studying, especially as a bachelor student having to deal with the TOM model. Now, as a board member of D.R.V. Euros, I saw a lot of freshman who did not want to commit to the top-level sport, because of their studies. This is a shame, because it is an excellent way to develop yourself during your time as a student. The University should be encouraging and supporting students who thrive an ambitious goal next to their studies. Either a goal on top-level sport, committees, being a board member, or anything that can add value to your development as a person. Development should be a priority!

“Development is priority!”
