“GSV Excalibur (Historical Students Association Excalibur)
Considering the amount of freedom students enjoy during their study career, every student should be able to enjoy their time to the fullest. As for the department of History at Radboud University, the Historical Study Association Excalibur, also known as the GSV in Dutch student slang, tries to offer history students a wide array of fun and educational activities. A good mix of both formal and informal activities are on the GSV agenda, as an association entirely dedicated to the needs of students. In order to achieve said mix, lectures, conferences, symposia and trips to for example Georgia and Armenia are set up and enjoyed by other students. To meet the more relaxing needs, the GSV organises monthly drinks, parties and sports activities. In addition, the GSV organises activities specifically aimed at first-year students. Finally, the GSV provides a noticeable discount for the books needed by first-years via the local bookstore Roelants, and publishes interviews with staff members in the periodical of the association, the HInt (now also partially in English!). Concluding this introduction to the GSV, the board would like to welcome anyone to our association, as the GSV is commits itself to every student of history!
