Daan Lips – Chairman

Hello! My name is Daan and I am the Chairman of the 4th board of the HCSA! I study International Economics & Business Economics and I was born and raised in the lovely Noord-Brabant, one of the ‘gezellige’ southern provinces! I’ve been part of the activities committee and the gala committee and that’s been great fun! Besides working hard for my thesis, my degree and my association I enjoy grabbing a drink with my friend and just hanging out a bit! And ofcourse, I love to travel the world and visit all the beautiful places it has to offer!

All the best,

Daan Lips




Jochelle – Secretary

Hey, I’m Jochelle, and I’m the secretary for the HCSA Board 2017-2018. I’m currently a second-year LLB International and European Law student, and an Honours newbie. Although I completed high school in the Caribbean, I’m originally from New York, which shows if you were to look at my closet. Thanks to my impulsive shopping, I now own a pair of shoes for each day of the month. When I’m not finding new ways to go bankrupt, I spend my time attending extra lectures and horseback riding. I like to consider myself an open, sociable person and I look forward to my involvement in the HCSA and its further growth and internationalization.
I really look forward to working with the other members of the Board and the entire association. I hope that my presence on truly assists in making this year memorable and rewarding for all of us!




Elien- treasurer

Hi! I’m Elien, the new treasurer of the board of the Honours College Social Association 2017-2018. I’m a third year Dutch law student. In my free time you can find me at Gyas, for rowing or just enjoying a drink. I’ll hope that I can make, together with the rest of the board, your year with the HCSA a good year. With study activities, but also with drinking activities and getting to know each other. I’ll hope I see you at our next events this and next year!




Jochem – External affairs


My name is Jochem and I am the Commissioner of External Affairs 2017-2018. Born and raised in the province of Groningen, I made the big leap of going to the city of Groningen to study History. Currently I am in my fourth year, while being active for some international student foundations as well. I am interested in security, geopolitics and have a weak spot for vinyl records. You can describe me as an enthusiastic, social person who is also patient and dedicated.  In my free time I like to watch Netflix, have a beer with friends or listen to the vinyl records I couldn’t resist. For questions about any external activities of the HCSA do not hesitate to contact me! Furthermore, I look forward to the coming board year and getting to know everybody who will be involved in the HCSA!




Fleur – Public relations

Hey, I am Fleur and I will be commissioner of Public Relations of the HCSA Board 2017-2018. I am a third-year student at the ‘Academische Pabo’, which is Pedagogical science combined with the study to become a teacher at primary school. When I am not being around kids as a teacher I also like to make little pirates and princesses of them with face paint. Besides that, I really love being with my friends, travelling (preferring the travel-the-world-kind above the train trips Apeldoorn-Groningen here) and going to Gyas, where I am rowing in the same team as Elien. This year I will be promoting HCSA (just not with face paint probably) and I hope that together we can make this a great year. I’m really looking forward to being part of this board!
