About the "Club van 50"
The Club van 50 was founded in 2012, when Flow celebrated its 10th birthday. The Club van 50 is a group of people that want to support Flow (i.a. alumni and friends of the association) by donating €50,- every year. In return they receive a prominent place on the board in the Flow office and a yearly drink with a meeting.
Members "Club van 50"
These are the members of the “Club van 50”.
Iskander de Lange – Voorzitter 2013-2014
I am Iskander de Lange, master student in Human Aspects of Information Technology and I have been chairman of this beautiful association in the year 2013-2014. In my first two years, together with the Introduction Committee (first year member, second year commissioner), I helped to ensure that the freshman were offered nice activities and logically I participated in all kinds of nice activities myself such as study trips (Dublin, Prague), an association weekend (The Hague), and of course the smaller activities. After these two years one last step was left: being a part of the Daily Board of Flow, and that turned out to be one of the better choices in my student life so far. In those three years you not only build up an incredibly beautiful bond with the people you get to know, but also with the association itself, all its nice activities, and of course with Van Horen Zeggen (where I work at the time of writing this, há. You can see what kind of bond you build then). And at last, why become a member of the “Club van 50”? Two reasons. A: Flow has meant much to me. Hopefully I can do something for the association in this way, even if I get less involved with Flow after my student life. B: It is really nice to have your name and function on a nice board.
Michael Langendoen – Introcommissaris 2013-2014
I am Michael Langendoen, in the main time a hardworking citizen, who remembers his lazy student life with melancholy. From my first year, I was already a member of Flow and left after obtaining my Master’s degree.
In these years I have been a part of various committees and was commissioner of a committee three times total: The Web Committee, the Introduction Committee, and the very first Weekend Committee. My favorite activity remains the Introcamp, during which I played a role for 5 years in a row. I’m also proud to be the founder of Flow HQ, the legendary Flow house, where I experienced great moments with many other Flow members. I had a great time at Flow and will always keep posted on the association.
Arnoud van Hulst – Grootste fan van Flow
I am Arnoud van Hulst, master student Religious Studies. In my second year as a board member of Media Vita, I ended up at a drink of Flow and never left. As a regular guest at these drinks, I see that for many communication students Flow is the ideal way to make friends for life and at the same time combine the theory of the study with practice. It is important that Flow can continue to organize these fun and interesting activities, and that’s why I’m happy to contribute one’s mite through the “Club van 50”.
Pieter Winnemuller – Vicevoorzitter 2013-2014
After being introduced to Flow as a freshman in 2011, I experienced a number of wonderful years as an active member. By organizing drinks, promotional activities, and above all a board year in 2013-2014, I got to know Flow inside and out. In 2016, I was able to end my active membership with the organization of the annual symposium.
Collaborating, planning, managing and above all, creating awesome activities for my fellow students: Flow has taught me a lot. High time to introduce new generations to the best study association of all. That is why I am proud to support the “Club van 50”, and I hope that Flow will give every CIS student many great years to come!
Yannick van den Hurk – Penningmeester 2010-2011
Sebastiaan Brouwers – Webcommissaris 2011-2012
Nick Tammel – Voorzitter 2012-2013
Vera van der Laan – Secretaris 2014-2015
Yvonne Withagen – Penningmeester 2014-2015
I am Yvonne Withagen, former treasurer, drunken rascal points winner, and for the time being in possession of the record longest consecutive active membership. For those interested: member EJC (2011/2012), member IFAC (2012/2013), commissioner IFAC (2013/2014), treasurer (2014/2015), member weekend committee (2015/2016), member lustrum committee (2016/2018). Maybe superfluous to say right now, but I really love Flow! Unfortunately, it’s time for me to end this period, but fortunately I can now focus my full attention on my fulltime job. A place where I can apply all the skills I learned at Flow in the ‘big people life’ (except for the drunken rascal points). And a place where I earn enough money to happily support the association that has given me so much.
Karlijn van Hoek – Secretaris 2009-2010
It has been a while now (2009-2010), but I still look back with great pleasure on my board year at FLoW (old spelling). As a study trip commissioner, I supervised the trip to Copenhagen in 2009, and that made me want more. Our board year had many highlights and I still have many friends from that time (e.g. fellow board member Maarten). After my bachelor I did the master Media & Journalism in Rotterdam, and in the summer of 2011, I started my career at Willem II. Meanwhile, I am already a number of employers further, but I still live in Tilburg with great pleasure. Study Association Flow has meant a lot to me during my studies and I’m glad that I can stay involved in this way (and once in a while drink a beer with fellow ex-Flow members)!
Dominique Roovers – Winnaar Flowmissie 2015 (Web)
Dennis de Groot – Voorzitter 2015-2016
After starting my student days with a TOP Week and Introcamp, I didn’t have to think long to sign up for a committee of Flow. Inspired by a fantastic camp and persuaded by my TOP daddy Michael Langendoen, I signed up for the Introduction Committee (of which Michael happened to be a commissioner). Then I followed Michael’s footsteps as commissioner of the Introduction Committee, and a year later I followed the footsteps of my other TOP daddy, Nick Tammel, and became chairman of this wonderful association in 2015- 2016. So, you can see that a good upbringing is very important! Besides a great board year, with super sweet board mates, full of fun and new experiences, I was also a part of different committees with in each nice fellow committee members. My weakness for the Introcamp from the first year still exists. After being a part of it every year, each time in a different role, I have almost finished the Introcamp. It is nice to involve new freshmen in Flow, so that they can hopefully enjoy it as much as I have done. Because oi, oi, oi, the student life is beautiful.
Donny Batenburg – Secretaris 2015-2016
Arjen Traas – Penningmeester 2015-2016
Evi van der Weegen – Commissaris Externe Betrekkingen 2015-2016
At the beginning of my student days, I came into contact with Flow for the first time. After some doubts, I decided to join the “Eerstejaarscommissie” (now annexed by the Introduction Committee). This choice was the beginning of an active membership that would last all my student life – even during my exchange. In the year 2015/2016, I had the honor to be a member of the Daily Board of Flow as External Relations Commissioner. Together with the nicest fellow board members and all the dear members of Flow, I really had a top year. From 2013 until now I have seen Flow change and grow a lot, and I am proud to be able to support and be part of this.
Arnold van der Werff – Flexabeats en Huis-DJ van Flow 2012-2017
Anne Kessels – Voorzitter 2016-2017
Suzan van Dijke – Secretaris 2016-2017
With great pleasure, I have been an active member of Study Association Flow for five years. In my first year (2013-2014), I was a member of the IFAC, after that I became a member of the Promo Committee, commissioner of the IFAC, secretary & vice-chairman, and finally a member of the Lustrum Committee. The Lustrum of Flow was a hit! We organized a gala with dinner, a super cool cantus with live band, a cabaret evening, a wild weekend at the Europapark, and we abseiled from the Pathé. I really enjoyed all the activities I had the opportunity to experience with Flow. Flow has made my student time a lot cozier, more festive, and easier. I wish that to everyone!
Sara van der Boon – Penningmeester 2016-2017
Stephanie Kruythof – Commissaris Externe Betrekkingen 2016-2017, Opoe van Flow
Nigel Korthout – DJ Larcho
Although Nigel was a member of the Symposium Committee in 2017-2018, he will be remembered as DJ Larcho. The name originated in London, where Flow was invited for a College Tour broadcast. In the evening, Nigel dined at a pizzeria with a Starbucks-style concept: at one counter he placed his order and at the other he received the pizza box with his name on it. You can imagine that English people have trouble spelling Dutch names, but fortunately Nigel has the most English name imaginable. How the pizza lady made ‘Larcho’ of the name Nigel is still a big mystery up to this day. Since then he goes through life as (DJ) Larcho.

Thijs van der Weijden – ‘Thissa’, Actief lid 2017 – 2021
In 2016 I started studying CIS in Tilburg. After a quiet first year, I became an active member of Flow in 2017, because I did know early that the ‘blue shirts’ were the people to roll with. Then the real adventure started! I unexpectedly got a student room and visited countless drinks, cantuses, trips and other activities. Eventually I spent three years in the Web committee (one of which as commissioner) and one year in the IFAC. A time full of learning and fun!
Because the Corona crisis threw a wrench into the studying process, I’ll leave Tilburg with just a bachelor and no master as originally intended. However, what matters more to me than those papers, is all the personal development, experience and fun as an active student. And all the people I got to know, of course! Thank you all and it was an honor to be part of Flow!
