On Saturday, June 4, Koen Becking, Rector Magnificus and Chairman of the Executive Board, as well as Elyas Razawi, former scholarship student of the BSc in Business Administration, officially launched the new Nyenrode Scholarship Fund. With a push of the red button, they gave the starting signal in a large tent on the estate during the lustrum festivities in honor of the 75th anniversary of Nyenrode Business University.
Making our society more sustainable requires a global sanctuary for change, where there is room for collective action, dialogue and a mindset to learn to understand each other and each other's languages.
After an absence of more than 80 years, one of Nyenrode’s old bells has returned to the castle. The bell was once part of the bell ensemble that the lord of the castle, Michiel Onnes, had installed in the lantern on the onion-shaped tower in 1916. The purchase has been made partly possible with a donation from the Nyenrode community, facilitated by Stichting Nyenrode Fonds (Nyenrode Fund). Remmelt Vetkamp, vice-chairman of the University Board, accepted the bell on behalf of the university last February 7.
In the Pfizer hall at Nyenrode, abundantly decorated with flowers, Nyenrode Business Universiteit celebrated its 75th birthday today. This so-called Dies Natalis coincided with the official start of the university’s anniversary year.
