Board 2020

Irma Lemmen – Chair 

Hello all, My name is Irma Lemmen and this year I will be the chair of Stichting RAGweek Nijmegen. At this point in time, I am in my fourth year of the study Greek and Latin language and culture and currently working on a minor in International Business Communication. For the past 10 years, I’ve been coming to Nijmegen every day since I went to high school in this beautiful city. Last year I did a board year at Sodalicum Classicum and that was the first moment that I was introduced to the RAGweek and did my by best to do something for the charity. This year I wanted to give even more for the RAGweek and therefore, I decided to do a board year at RAGweek. That is why I, together with my co-board members will do everything to raise as much money as we can for Free a Girl and the Voedselbank Nijmegen. If you have any questions, don’t be afraid to ask me and I hope to see all of you during the RAGweek!

Riley Kapelle – Secretary & Board member PR until the 21st of January

Hello dear readers, My name is Riley Kapelle and with my 19 years of age, I am the youngest of this years RAGweek board. Somewhere in the far past, I was born in the city of Doetinchem and was raised in a pretty village in the Achterhoek called Ulft. Right now, I’ve been living in Nijmegen for over two years and I don’t regret that decision at all. Now that I have reached my third year of Geography, Spatial Planning and Environment, I decided that it was time to do something else besides my study. That’s how I got in touch with RAGweek. For me RAGweek is the perfect combination between making fun and contributing to society. With a healthy doses of motivation and an unhealthy doses of enthusiasm, I will be the secretary of this years RAGweek.

Also, I am always willing to drink a beer, or when it is a bit earlier during the day, a cup of coffee. So if you want to know more, don’t be afraid to ask me and I hope to see you soon!

Noortje te Molder – Penningmeester 

Hey everybody!  I am Noortje te Molder, 21 years old and right now I’m in my third year of Law and Management. This year I will be the treasurer of RAGweek. I’ve been living in Nijmegen for quite some time now and I really like it here! The past few years of my study, I’ve been busy organising activities, study trips, being a volunteer at ‘’Rechtswinkel’’, hanging out with friends and doing some sports. I really wanted a new challenge in my life and I really liked the idea of RAGweek. Therefore I decided to accept this challenge and to do a board year at RAGweek. 

With little experience, but with lots of interesses I started as treasurer. I already learned a lot and together with my board members, I hope that this years RAGweek will be a great success!

Marieke Elderman – Bestuurslid Sponsoring & Secretary from the 21st of January

Dear reader, My name is Marieke Elderman and I am a third year student in Spanish language and culture. My roots lay in a town named Rheden (near Arnhem), but I moved to Nijmegen after studying for one year. Last year, I was secretary of study association OuiSi, which introduced me to the studentlife of Nijmegen. As I enjoyed this year full of new experiences and making new contacts, I was looking for another challenge. As a board member, I witnessed many activities of RAGweek and I was a volunteer myself during the RAGweek. Besides that, RAGweek really got to me as it unites so many different students. I am looking forward to raise as much sponsorship money as possible for charity and to deliver a great RAGweek this year!

Walthièro van der Kamp – Bestuurslid Activiteiten and Board Member PR from the 21st of January

Hey everybody, My name is Walthièro van der Kamp, board member Activities. I am 20 years old and was raised in Breskens, at the exotic coast of Zeeland. Two years ago I decided to move to the real world and made one of the best choices ever, studying and living in Nijmegen! After studying Politics for half a year, I decided to quit and find something better. Therefore, I am in my second year of Geography, Spatial planning and Environment. 

However, chances are that you find me outside of university are way bigger. I was in multiple commissions for ismus and Mundus, work in de hospital as patient mover and like to have a beer or two. The fact that I can’t keep myself calm and like to drink beer, made it that I decided to do a board year for RAGweek. As board member activities, I hope that I don’t have to get bored and that we will have a great RAGweek this year!
