Babylon is the study association for the Communication and Information Studies programme, with the Dutch track ‘Communicatie & Organisatie’ and the English track ‘International Business Communication. The association is open to all CIS students and offers both academic and leisure activities. Babylon currently has around 500 members, 80 of which are active in various committees.
Babylon organises study-related activities such as business visits, lectures, workshops, career days, congresses and annual study trips to cities like Budapest, Dublin, Berlin, Prague and Rio de Janeiro. Babylon also hosts an annual Parents’ Day. In collaboration with the CIS programme, Babylon also provides secondary school students with information about higher education by the Student-for-a-Day programme and organising orientation days.
In addition, Babylon organises leisure activities such as parties, drinks, pub crawls and sports activities. In mid-March, the association celebrates its anniversary by organising a whole week with all sorts of fun activities. These activities allow you to mix and mingle with fellow students.
Each year, Babylon organises the orientation week for prospective CIS students. Before the start of the academic year, prospective students are given a tour of Nijmegen and an introduction to student life, the CIS programme, their fellow students and of course Babylon.
