PLNT Students

You have those ambitious students during your studies among them who go the extra mile and want to make the most of their student life.

The board members of PLNT Students, our own student organization, are a great example of this.

But they do so – naturally – just a little differently than the other associations. They pave the path for fellow ambitious students. With a passion for innovation and entrepreneurship.

We innovate together. But we're also having fun. Lot's of it.

We work hard. But also love to have fun. Fun and relaxation are an important part of our work. We have lunch together, drink gallons of coffee, actively participate in the weekly Community Drinks, hold ping pong and padel tournaments, and the party committee organizes a (too) crazy outing three times a year.
