Welcome to the Euphorion website!
SV or SA, studie vereniging or study association Euphorion is the study association for Utrecht University’s bachelor programme Literary Studies, or Literatuurwetenschappen, if you are following the Dutch track.
A study association is an organisation by and for students of the same bachelor to come together and do anything related to their programme, such as book clubs or pub crawls (since bars and possibly irresponsible drinking are part of every study programme). After taking a painful social hit from covid-19 over the past year and a half, Board XIII is trying their best to make a comeback for Euphorion. Bi-monthly drinks and all sorts of fun activities are on the planning for the coming academic year, so that old students may reunite and that new ones get a chance to meet in person. We gently ask that everyone who has the opportunity to get vaccinated does so, as this will make our plans go a lot more smoothly!
So if all this sounds like something you want to be part of, go ahead and click on “Become a Member” on the menu bar above!
We hope to see you soon at the drinks or another event!
Lots of love,

Voorleesexpress (read aloud express) is an initiative to introduce the reading ritual to families with language deficits. A fixed reader comes home to the family every week to read to the children. Many literature students have gone before you, highly recommended!
Het Literatuurhuis (The Literature House) brings literature to the stage. Meet your favorite writer, learn more about that one literary master, discover new books: literature in the broadest sense of the word is covered throughout the year. Poetry during the annual Night of Poetry; poetry slam during the monthly U-Slam and the annual NK Poetry Slam; international literature during the festival City2Cities; literary heritage during the biennial festival Literary Masters and domestic and foreign literature of big and small names during lectures, film screenings and performances throughout the city and in Het Literatuurhuis itself at the Oudegracht. Since September 2013 Het Literatuurhuis has been operating in a monumental building on the Oudegracht, right next to Tivoli. In the back, in the oldest part of the house, is a small room in which small-scale literary programs and film screenings are organized. There are also courses on literary subjects and important authors. At http://www.hetliteratuurhuis.nl you will find all activities and you can also buy tickets. For students there is a special student card: for only 20 euros you can visit 6 shows of your choice!
Interested in an internship / volunteering? That’s possible!
We always work with trainees, both for publicity and production. We prefer to work with students who have a literary background, and thus study, for example, literary studies. Keep an eye on the website for interesting internship vacancies! We also regularly look for volunteers during our festivals. Does that interest you? Mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
