To steer all the goings on of Eoos (or any other student union) in the right direction, you need a president.

The president is the person who delegates and coordinates everything, together with the vice president(s). To the outside world, the president is the face of Eoos and the central contact person. The president also stands by the rest of the presidium at all times. There’s barely any life left outside of Eoos! The daily routine of the president is so busy with work for Eoos, that it seems to be a fulltime job, but definitely one that is carried out with hart & soul.


President Stijn Mertens

Hello! My name is Stijn, I study Arabic and since my first year Eoos has always been very important to me. First as a fun student union of which I took part in some activities, then I became a member, which gives you a clear view of the organization behind the amazing student life of Leuven. Now fate has decided for me to become president of this awesome student union. Fortunately, with me emerged a capable and enthusiastic team that will keep Eoos going. It will be a year full of activities, friendships and experiences. Make sure to come and meet all our great members who will make sure you will have an amazing year. See you soon!

What does the president do? By: Yentl Biebaut

The president sees to the representation on many different levels. He/she attends student councils together with education, supports the people of the course service in providing you with course material for a nice price.
These prices are checked & OK’d by finances while the webmaster keeps the website up-to-date so you can find all the necessary information..
There’s secretary, who types all the reports of meetings we have and makes sure everyone reads them.
And of course, there’s also room for relaxation:
Under the watchful eye of the president, there’s people of animation working on the next party, the cantor is preparing the next cantus, the culture-team is looking for a new movie or trip to make and the people of the Eoos Express are making a new magazine,
*takes breath*
The people of Fak are planning their next afternoon or night in our faculty bar, the people of international are taking steps to include internationals as well, PR is making a new poster and the people of sports are training for their next match!
It’s a lot of work, but most important: a lot of fun!
