Activities 2018/2019

After a period of silence, Psychology Alumni Association Amygdala is back in the game! From this year onwards, Amygdala wants to be actively involved in the careers of both students and (future) alumni. Amygdala was founded in 2008 and most of you probably know Amygdala from the past LinkedIn workshops or the small gift, letter and/or email you receive at the end of your studies. We hope to change this in the following years. Like the Amygdala is generally involved in experiencing, processing and controlling emotions, the alumni association want to create experiences, help you out processing the wide range of variables to incorporate as a student and stimulate you to take control of your career (for both students and alumni). Therefore, we took the last year to work out Amygdala’s identity and activities, and now it’s time to start!

Planned activities

Get in touch!

The amygdala is part of a wider (brain)network and collaborates with the several other structures. Like the amygdala, the alumni association likes to be part of a wider network. For the amygdala to be functional growth is needed, which takes time. While the alumni association is actively seeking collaboration ideas, initiatives or opportunities for our members are very, very welcome. If you know anyone who likes to give a lecture, wants to network, or wants to join our series of ‘Humans of Psychology’ you are very welcome to get in touch. We very welcome to embrace us.
