Donate to Australia!

As we all know Australia is being tortured with massive wildfires. The fires are destroying everything and everyone they touch. As we watch these fires burn, sitting back and doing nothing is not an option. As Off-Screeners we want to help! As the Reporter Committee we are asking you to please donate something, even the small amounts will help!

We have made donating very easy for you! Click here to see a list of charities to which you can donate.

Noa's Confessional

By: Noa Jansen

Noa’s confessional: a place where you can spill the tea and tell all your sins.

In this sacrament, Noa can forgive sins in Off-Screen’s name. With all the crazy stuff happening within Off-Screen’s walls, it was about time for us to have a safe place to tell your most embarrassing, weird, unusual and striking stories for them to be heard by all of us. So from now on, when something special happens to you, you have something on your mind or there’s something else that you really want to share with the rest of Off-Screen, send an email to, tell me in person or reveal it to me in a dream.

I decided that, just like in a real confessional, everything should be and stay anonymous. And remember, this is a safe place where everyone can come to terms with his/her sins, where judgement is a word that doesn’t belong in our vocabulary, and where we can all enjoy your embarrassing stories.

UvA Update

By: Jacqueline Antonissen

Study Adviser

Are you a first-year student and do you have questions about the Binding Study Advice?

At the end of January all first-year students will receive an e-mail with more information about the BSA regulations, including a flow chart (what to do?) and links to relevant webpages. In February every student receives a second interim non-binding study advice on the basis of the credits they have obtained up to that point.

You are invited to schedule an appointment with the study adviser to discuss any specifics, but only AFTER you have read the general information on the website (English or Dutch) and the flowchart that you will receive in January.

My take on Murphy's Law

By: Alexia Radu

Repeating the same narrative could eventually lead to an unavoidable monotony. It’s always about me, always chaotic, always sprinkled with unnecessary drama. So, let’s add a twist to the story: I therefore introduce a more intense version of myself, my sister, who, as it happens, possesses the secret power of attracting trouble. It’s safe to lay forward the argument that everyone’s holidays are messy but simply calling this one messy would be an understatement.
