Lustrum Faculty of Arts
In 2023 we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Faculty of Arts by organising a lot of fun and diverse activities. You can participate in the Crazy Arts Challenges, discover our history with the Timeline and celebrate our birthday on the Faculty Party on Saturday 23 September!
A year of celebration
Saturday 23 September: Faculty party
A centennial must be celebrated properly, and we will do so on Saturday 23 September in the Commanderie of St Jan! Save the date already, so you can celebrate this special lustrum with other students, colleagues and alumni. More information on registration and the programme will be published in June.
Thursday 14 December: Lustrum Closure Drinks
On Thursday 14 December, the lustrum year will be concluded with drinks in the Cultuur Café. We will look back to a good year and will look forward to what the future will bring.
Get acquainted with the world of research through the unique board game Awesome Academics. In this strategic game, you will guide your research group to victory! The game will be launched in September, so you can collect your own Awesome Academics.
Historical photo book
To properly record the past 100 years of the Faculty of Arts, a historical photo book will be created. This photo book is based on the Timeline you will encounter during your journey through the Erasmus Building.

Timeline in the Erasmus Building
Together with the Faculty of Philosophy, Theology, and Religious Studies and the Faculty of Law, the Faculty of Arts is the oldest faculty of Radboud University. At the opening of the Catholic University in 1923, there was one faculty for humanities: the Faculty of Arts and Philosophy. In the last 100 years, there have been many special events, interesting figures and moving stories. These histories can be found in the Timeline in the Erasmus Building. The Timeline can also be viewed in a document that can be downloaded below.
