Study association G.A.G. (English language and culture)
G.A.G. (Great Anglo-Saxon Gobblers) is the study association of English Language & Culture at the Radboud University in Nijmegen. By organising a variety of activities the association promotes the contact between the staff, the students, and among the students themselves. The association has, for example, organised study trips to London, Ireland and Scotland, game nights, parties, films and drinks. G.A.G. also has its own theatre group, The Understudies. Every year they perform a self-written Comedy Sketch Night and a big play at the end of the year. Furthermore, G.A.G. publishes the GAG_MAG, which includes everything that is interesting for students of English. G.A.G. has its own room on the twelfth floor of the Erasmus building, where twice a week all the members come together for some coffee, tea and biscuits.

Studievereniging USA (American Studies)
The American Studies program has had its own study association since 1989, but recently relaunched it under a new name: USA Nijmegen. With a board that changes annually and a permanent group of active members, this association is committed to facilitating contact among American Studies students. It does so by organizing parties, often in collaboration with other study associations at the Faculty of Arts, as well as excursions to places like the American embassy and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, thereby striking a balance between formal and informal activities.
USA Nijmegen has its own magazine, the Issue, which is published four times a year and contains articles for and by students of American Studies. Students are encouraged to contact the editors of the Issue to also contribute via email@example.com.
Together with the English Language and Culture study association (G.A.G.), USA Nijmegen organizes an orientation week for new students of American Studies, as well as an introduction day where students can meet their lecturers and their fellow classmates. Announcements and updates can be found on the USA Nijmegen website (www.usanijmegen.nl) and questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
