Winter on the RUG

Eerste slide: Voorpagina

Winter on campus

Tweede slide: intro
January means exams, new year’s resolutions and frigid conditions. The natural ice may not yet be quite thick enough to skate on, but the low temperatures and snow showers make for pretty scenes – and slippery biking – at the RUG.

The Energy Academy Europe, Linnaeusborg, Bernoulliborg and Duisenberg building (from right to left) appear frozen in place on the Zernike campus in early January.

2e slide: Terug naar huis vanaf Zernike

Employees head home as the sun begins to set on a snowy Monday afternoon behind the Duisenberg building.

Artificial red flowers on the handlebars of a parked bike outside the Faculty of Economics and Business appear to bloom against the snow
