We are thrilled to announce that the board of the WOT has been awarded the “best part-time board of the year 2023”

This price was awarded at the MTAD award, the event with which the student union of the university of Twente aims to thank students who achieve “More Than A Degree” by spending their time on running the different student associations and organisations that fuel the student culture in Enschede.

Great thanks go out to the jury and all our fellow students who voted for us. ❤
