Secretary: Linde Verhofstad

Hey! I’m Linde, and this year I am the Metis secretary. I am in charge of communication and making sure that we function well as a board. My aim is to continue Metis as a broad student association that has something to offer for everyone, no matter what their hobbies or interests are. As I am the only third year on board, I also want to ensure that third years feel included and welcome in the association. If you have any questions, you can reach me at

Co. Internal Affairs: Ravi Master

Hoi Hoi! I’m Ravi from South Africa. I am very excited to be your Internal Affairs Commissioner on the 2021-22 Metis board! My job is simple: I look after and guide all of our wonderful committees. Having spent my first year during the height of the 2020 corona crisis, I learnt first hand the importance of having a university community. It was during this time when Metis helped all of us foster a sense of community during those difficult months of lockdown. Working closely with our 15+ committees it is my personal goal and vision to strengthen and grow the Metis community!

Finally, if you ever have any questions ranging from how to join to how to establish a new committee (and anything in between), don’t hesitate to reach out to me personally or through email at

I am in charge of all connections to other associations, sponsors and in general all external partners. On the other hand, my role will also entail making sure everything runs well within Metis together with the other board members. If you have any questions or ideas you would share with me, especially in the regard of external issues, please do not hesitate to contact me:
