*** Members Only Event *** 

This traditional activity, frequently organized by many Dutch, Belgian and even South-African student organizations, involves drinking beer and singing songs and is organized by Dispuut GIST for their second lustrum (10th anniversary). For only 20 euros you can join this amazing night! Read below how a cantus works and enroll via to make sure you do not miss out on this unique party!

The cantus (Latin for ‘singing’, derived from ‘cantare’) is led by the Praesidium. The whole process does involve some Latin phrases and has some rules, but you have nothing to worry about since the Praesidium will guide you trough this wonderful evening. Together with all other SIB members, you will form the ‘corona’ (Latin for ‘circle’). Split into different groups, sitting at different tables, you will be singing songs from the ‘codex’, the book of songs that each member will be given in the beginning. It contains popular classics like Pianoman – Billy Joel, Angels – Robbie Williams and Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen. The Dutch national anthem and Gras Van Het Noorderplantsoen – Ralf Poelman will also be sung. Obviously, When You Say Nothing At All – Ronan Keating, cannot be left out.

We will start at 20:00 sharp, so don’t be late! Do also mind that this event does NOT take place at Club KIWI, but a few streets from there, at Unitas SG (Schuitendiep 74, Groningen). Hope to see you there!
