SLAAFS - Eerlijk, Simpel, Bier

SLAAFS originated from discontent over the party system of the student council elections at the Faculty of Science, which caused only abstract promises to be made, that more often than not weren’t realized. That’s why the candidates of SLAAFS represent their own views and opinions while SLAAFS as a party makes only one promise: free beer! We want to give back to the student directly, which we do so with our free beer drinks. In this way we bring the council closer to the students and create more of a community at our university.

Every one of our candidates represents their views and opinions, so every promise made is kept whenever possible. If you want to know the specific points of our candidates, you can take a look at our website slaafs.com or have a chat with one of our candidates at various student campuses! The candidates with the most preference votes will be the ones joining the council for us. At SLAAFS you can be as serious as you want to, as long as you have the support and votes of your fellow student.

Our motto is ‘Honest, Simple, Beer’. We are honest about our goals, we don’t make it any harder than it has to be and above all, we have our free beer drinks to give back to our supporters.
