On Thursday, the first monthly drinks will be held at Cafe de Keyzer, starting 21:00.
Not only are you able to have some (discounted) drinks with friends here, you will also be able to talk to old committee members to see if you are interested in joining one of such committees.
Do you want to have a more active role within L.A.S. Terra? Then joining one of the committees is the right way to do so!
A three-day event, hosted just for our lovely First Years, filled with fun activities that are meant to help you better understand what L.A.S. Terra and its subgroups are all about. Consisting of plenty of themed games, educational walks, and parties, the First Year’s Weekend is the best means of getting to know your future classmates, as well as older Archaeology students, in the most interesting and amusing of environments.
For those attending – don’t forget all your necessities that we have listed for you in an email!
See you this weekend!

As is tradition, all subgroups will get one week in the beginning of the year to present themselves and host some activities. This year, Maitreya will be the first to do this in week 37, starting on Monday, the 9th of September.
On Thursday the 12th, they will host an epic karaoke party at De Hut van Ome Henne, starting from 21:00.
Make sure to be there or Maitreya’s assessor, Vi, will be very upset with you!

L.A.S. Terra is short for the Leidsche Archaeological Study-association Terra. Throughout the year, we organise lots of activities like lectures, drinks, movie nights, trips and lots more. Besides that, we have our infamous Terra parties. Also, every year, we organise a weekend for the first year students. This takes place at the beginning of the year so that the first years get to know each other and us. Terra has a slightly weird construction, since we have five different subgroups inside the association. These subgroups each represent different Archaeological areas. When you become a member of Terra, which you are for life, you will automatically become a member of the subgroups. This means, you don’t have to sign-up or pay anything extra to join their activities. You can also just choose if you want to go to activities or not, no strings attached. If you want to know more about the subgroups, simply go to our subgroup page. Since almost every Archaeology student is a member of Terra, it is a great way to get to know fellow students and even the staff, of which many have been active members in the past. You are always welcome to come see us in our office (room C.008) for a nice chat, information about activities or just if you want to hang out with us.
