De Vereniging Vrienden Van de SIB (VVV-SIB) is the SIB’s alumni association. VVV-SIB provides the opportunity to stay in contact with the people you met during your membership.

Had a good time at the SIB?

SIB-Groningen prides itself on offering both social and intellectual activities! We strive to stimulate our members in taking an interest to important issues that come up in the world around us. Of course, this leads to many contacts and friendships. Whether you love deep discussions about the world’s problems or just like a chat and a drink, you are at home at the SIB!

Want to hold on to that feeling?

Someday, the unavoidable “next step” needs to be taken. You decide to end your membership. But that does not mean that you have to say goodbye to the SIB for good! Through our alumni association, VVV-SIB, you can stay up to date with all important SIB affairs. Also, we love staying in contact with our former members.

What does VVV-SIB offer?
  • “De Horizontaal”, the alumni newsletter in your inbox about 3 times per year. Next to the most important SIB-news, it contains a network list with information about all VVV-SIB members;
  • a yearly invitation for our “Dies Natalis”;
  • two socials per year,
  • access to the Facebook and LinkedIn groups,
  • and an Alumni Day during every Lustrum!
