Lars de Bont (Treasurer):
Hellooo, I am Lars. I’m 23 years old and I’m in my third year of Biology, doing the medical trajectory. I was born and raised in the beautiful city of Nijmegen, so I definitely know my way around. Overall, I’m a pretty calm and relaxed person, but I am also always up for hanging out, or drinking and going partying. I really enjoy being active within the study association so you can often find me at many of the BeeVee activities, and I am also a part of the sports committee, the almanac committee and since this year: the orientation committee! I am very excited to meet you all during the orientation week, as I had a great time during my own orientation and I want to make sure that you do as well!

I’m also an active member of BeeVee, the biology study association, and in BeeVee I’m also a member of the borrel committee called PRAC. Besides BeeVee I also like football, skiing and partying.
