Aureus Lustrum

This year, Aureus and the School of Business and Economics will be celebrating their 14th lustrum. Our study association was founded ijn October 1948 and will turn 70 years old this year. We want to honor this special event with all of you. Therefore, the whole month of November will be in light of our lustrum and we are organizing special events to highlight this memorable year.


A lustrum is nonexistent without a suitable theme. For our 14th lustrum we have chosen the theme LuXX. The literal translation of ‘lux’ is light and derives from the Latin language. In addition to this, the number 70 is written as 'LXX' in Roman numbers. Combine those two together, and you get LuXX. Throughout the whole academic year, you will see this theme returning in our events and services.

No theme is complete without a fitting slogan; Enlighten Me. This year we hope to 'enlighten' you by providing a healthy mix of social & fun activities together with academic & career events. This year, our regular events will experience a slight touch of our theme and slogan, but in addition to these events we will also organize special lustrum activities at different times throughout the year.


In November we will organize the biggest student party of Amsterdam again! After last year’s successful edition, we are taking it to a new and higher level this year. For this special lustrum edition, we’ve invited a few of the most popular artists to perform and celebrate the lustrum with us! More information on this event will be posted in the upcoming few months, so stay posted on our website and Facebook!

In collaboration with the School of Business and Economics, we will host a symposium on 20 November. Multiple inspiring speakers will come to talk about relevant topics and to answer all your burning questions. Afterwards there will be a drink where you can talk personally with these speakers as well. The program of the whole event is yet to be announced but make sure to save the date since you will not want to miss out on this opportunity.

At the beginning of 2019 we will host a special event on the campus of the VU. Exact date, time and program of our lustrum campus activity will be communicated to you later this academic year!
