Dear geologists 

Yesyesyes it just happened, we beat Wina!!!! We could only hope it in our wildest dreams but luckily most dreams are not a lie because when I woke up we were already 12 tours ahead. And yes at the end there were even 19! Thanks for this to all the amazing runners, supporters and sports pros. More joy this week, 2 holidays and the first geos cantus of the academic year, which by the way is already sold out immediately(yes, you read this correctly). 

-Thursday 03/11 20:30 Christening cantus:
After a whole week of having to complete assignments, it is finally time to have our shafts officially baptised. And what better way to do this than with a cantus. The cantus itself is unfortunately already full but you can still put yourself on the waiting list by filling in the registration link yet, provided you still feel like coming.For the lucky ones who managed to secure a place, the cantus is to be held in the Pavo.

Further activities: 

– Saturday 05/11 14:00 Autumn Hike(Scientica):
Now that the leaves are falling from the trees and the thick layer of humus is forming, we think it’s the perfect time to introduce you to Belgian nature! From the many mushrooms appearing out of nowhere to the birds arriving and leaving, nothing is more beautiful than the forests preparing for Belgian winter. Be there on 5 November! After the walk, you can still enjoy a hot chocolate Hope to see you then!

– Tuesday 08/11 19:30 Whisky tasting:
The Geos whisky tasting is coming up again. Let your taste buds do their work and your throat burn by enjoying some whiskies from the top cask. All this with a snack in between and expert explanations. Registration is possible via the following link until 06/11:
lease note! Only 30 places are available.

!Message of public benefit!
The fluorescent caps can be collected this week on Mondays and Thursdays between 10h45 and 14h in the Geogang from Hanne. If you don’t find her, feel free to send a message!

CuDi opening hours

Fumarole 04 – 24/10/2022

Dear geologists 

After two nights of sleeping in a small dormitory with 25 other geologists and listening to the wonderful snoring of some of them, it took me a while to recover. But after a night’s sleep and some reminiscing about a fantastic weekend, we are ready for a new week that will be especially stressful for our sportspraeses 

– Tuesday-Wednesday 25-26/10 20:00: 24-hour run
Yay it’s finally here, the biggest sporting event of the year is here again. After weeks of training, sports enthusiasts can finally show what they have been running for every Tuesday and Thursday. Come run or support so we will definitely do better than last year! 

– Thursday 27/10 Start baptism week:
The 24-hour run naturally accompanies the start of baptism week. Due to the rather poor location of All Saints’ and All Souls’ Day, it will look a bit different in terms of dates. So starting now, we will do the dirty baptism right away. Will our shafts be able to win with Merkator’s Thick Berta this year? Let us hope so. After this activity, we can once again fraternise with Merkator at their doopparty. 

One week on: Thursday 03/11 Doopcantus:
Traditionally, we end baptism week with a cantus. The shafts will now be officially baptised and everyone can be there at this happy event. You can register via the following link:

Fumarole 03 – 17/10/2022

Dear geologists, 

Yet another week is upon us, and that means another one is done. And from the one that is done, we can once again conclude that Geos can cantus a lot better than Merkator. The coming week looks very good with two top activities and the last sporting tasks. 

– Monday 17/10 19:45 Peter and meter evening:
The evening where all the years come together once again is coming up. You can get to know the freshmen and finally know when a Walloon bike shop is actually open. So be sure to come down to the geogang by 19:45. By the way, there will also be a group photo taken with all the years together! 

– Tuesday 18/10 18:30 Running training Atmosphere
One more week and the 24-hour run is coming up again. Everyone should be in perfect shape by now and who knows, maybe we can beat Wina this year. You can still run at your own pace. 

– Thursday 20/10 18:30 Running training Atmosphere
All sporting songs come to an end, and so do the running training sessions. Those who have not yet been able to show that they are in the shape of their lives have one last chance to do so. Come and join the team because there is atmosphere at atmosphere!
If you are sure you want to join us for a tour, then be sure to check out the following facebook page:

– Friday 21/10 17:50 Geosweekend
Finally! The coolest weekend of the entire year is here again. And you can still be there! Register now and join us for a luxury weekend in the Kempen with an overnight stay in the cosy and (hopefully) warm shelter. Highlights are of course the excursion to the Ardennes, Félix’s barbecue skills and the subsequent cantus. Surely you can’t miss this! 

Opening hours CuDi:

Fumarole 02 – 20/20/2022

Dear Geologists

The second week of the year is over and we are starting to get used to student life a bit again. Having just survived last week’s brewery visit and fakbar tour, a quieter week is really coming. Although the sporty ones can start enjoying themselves again. 

– Monday 10/10 22:00 Scienticafé:

Are you curious to know how our fellow scientists and geographers are doing these days. Then be sure to drop by t’elixlr! To make you forget the autumn feeling for a while, they are organizing it in summer style this year. (With mojitos for only 2.20euros😯😋) 

– Tuesday 11/10 18:30 Run training Atmosphere:

The 24-hour run is getting closer and closer and so the training sessions keep piling up. I did get word from our sportspraeses that no geologist was present at the running training sessions last week. Therefore, I suggest that perhaps one person might still want to sacrifice themselves to go for a bit of sports training. You might even get a kiss from Robbe as a reward😘

– Thursday 13/10 18:30 Running Training Atmosphere:
Hopefully Tuesday’s one victim did not suffer too harsh a trauma from Robbe’s kiss and will just come back, because yes you read correctly there is another running training session. If you feel inclined to join the training, be sure to come off. (You can run at your own pace) 

A word about further activities: 

– Monday 17/10 19:45 Peter-meter evening:
Dear godmothers and godfathers, you are welcome together with your new children to make it another fun evening. If you are curious what your future godson or godmother is dressed up in and what vague answers were given to the questionnaire come down to the geogang by 19:45. Why this odd hour? Well, this is also the perfect time to take a new group photo with all the geologists. 

– 21/10 – 23/10 Geos weekend:

The best weekend of the year is coming up again and finally this one can take place on location. Namely, we will be spending the night in the historical capital of the Kempen region, Herentals. Apart from the unique opportunity to have spent the night in Hertals, this will of course be followed by an excursion to the Ardennes where, as freshmen, we all got to hit the rocks with a hammer for the first time. So well worth coming, especially if you know that we will end that day with a cantus. You can register via the link in the event or via the one in the letter(see attachment) 

Here are the CuDi’s opening hours: 

ma 10 oktober di 11 oktober wo 12 oktober do 13 oktober vr 14 oktober 
11:00 Open Open Open     
12:00 Open Open Open Open Open

Fumarole 01 – 27/09/2022

Dear Geologists 

After three months it is that time again, the start of the new academic year. This launch is of course also accompanied by a new series of fumarools, your weekly email with all the information about Geos activities and opening hours of your favorite course service. After a year of having Bram as your weekly spammer, the bar is set high for me to do equally well in Geos’ last year. I also apologize in advance for any minor language errors that may have crept in. These can always be called on to 014 75 52 10. 

Here are the events for this week: 

Monday 26/09 15:00 Welcome day 1st Bachelor
Yeey no classes today. Except for the 1st Bacchelor. For them a tour with various information sessions. To ensure that they also have a great day, they are invited for a drink so that they also get to know the nightlife in Leuven. 

Tuesday 27/09 19:45: City game 1st Bachelor
The very sympathetic EJW-team has another scary city game in store for the new students. 1st Bachelor students are expected at the City Hall by 7:45 PM. Persons who would like to assist the EJW with watching the game from a terrace are always welcome. 

Thursday 29/09 21:00 Welcome Party
The annual moment when the earth scientists fraternize has arrived again. Everyone is welcome from 9 pm to start the new academic year with a party. Be sure to check out the Facebook event for further wardrobe information. !Caution: Geos is not responsible for permanent hearing damage after K3 songs! 

I also advertise some future activities. 

Running training Atmosphere 

After all that partying and drinking, the extra calories can be sported off again. In order to achieve this, Geos, and Atmosphere in particular, are once again organizing annual running training. Plus, you suddenly get fit to go for a few tours during the 24-hour run. The dates will be communicated via the Geos facebook page 

05/10 17:00 Stella Artois brewery visit
The dream trip for every beer lover. A visit to the brewery that provides us with the very best, golden barley liquor during our student days. Enjoy a visit , tasting and tap course.
Registration is required via the link in the Facebook event.
(For the haters: Stella is better than Jupiler (not counting Cara)) 

Here are the opening hours of the course service for this week: 

 26/09 27/09 28/09 29/09 
12uur 1e bach Biochem&tech & Biologie & Chemie vanaf 12:30 Open Open Open

Fumarole 26/11 – 29/11-2018

After a very successful Lustrum week it isn’t yet time to take it easy as there still are plenty of activities happening this week! All the food from Tuesday and Friday can be eliminated on Monday with a sportive activity and afterwards by partying. Meetings are also this week. Definitely a divers program this week.

Monday 26 November

It’s time for the Sport of the Month. Since it is getting quite cold it is time to go inside and play Badminton. Entry is completely free with a sports-card, handy tip; take any rackets or plumes you have at kot/home. Sportkot can apparently run better than us but they can’t play badminton!

Location and time; Building De Nayer at 19:00

After a sportive early evening it’s time to use the same muscles for something else, namely to drink! The second Scienticafé is here, this time the Kringenzuip (or Association Drink). Everyone is definitely welcome to show off that the geologists are the best drinkers, non-alcoholic drinks are also counted. So there is no excuse to have a fun evening with our fellow scientists. There will also be a limited amount of fried snacks so be there early.

Location and time; ‘t ElixIr from 22:00 onwards

Thursday 29 November

The second AV (or General Meeting) of the year is here. This one will be short but very important. Everyone is welcome to come.

Location and time; 200E 01.209 at 20:00

Fumarole 19/11 – 24/11/2018

The long wait is finally over, Geos Lustrumweek is here! Get ready for a week of activities brought to you by a very enthusiastic praesidium. Here is an overview of the whole week that begins exactly 55 days after the start of the academic year, it’s as if we planned it all along.

Monday 19 November

The week starts with a Lustrumcantus. The theme is what your plans are to do by the time you are 55. Another Geos lustrumweek is definitely one of mine! Geos members are always welcome, so no worries if you didn’t sign up.

Location and time: ZaMo, 20:00 doors open, 20:30 Io Vivat

Tuesday 20 November

A Lustrum lunch will be organised for all those hungry after a probably very fun and possibly heavy cantus yesterday. You can choose from a wide range of foods for a symbolic euro. Why don’t you come by in the Geogang between 12:00-14:00, sit in the red couches and enjoy?

For those who don’t have much luck in the real world can always try their luck in the Casino. Therefore we are organising a Casino Night with a fancy dresscode. The local Geological mafia will definitely come and make the evening a fun night for all.

(Disclaimer: the mafia only exists to bring joy)

Location and time: 200E, 20:00

Wednesday 21 November

Everyone has heard of Disney on Ice but nothing is so graceful as Geos on Ice! Come one come all to the Ice Rink in Haasrode, entrance is free for members, you can sign up through the event. We will meet up near the 200E for those who don’t know the way.

Thursday 22 November

Lately it’s almost cold enough to announce another glaciation. Therefore we are transforming the Albatros in theme with the Ice Age with a lot of promo’s, free entry for Geos members and a Snowmachine! Definitely worth coming by and warming the place up to the current, due to climate change warm temperature.

Friday 23 November

In honour of our 55 years we will look back at the past five years. There will be nostalgic mementos on display, such as T-shirts, hoodies but also Cleavage-editions and just like last lustrum a special Lustrum-beer. If you have any pictures from the past five years you can definitely mail them to us. You can sign up via the link in the event, the reception begins at 19:00.

Saturday 24 November

A lustrum week is not complete without a Lustrum excursion, in cooperation with the 40-years B.V.L.G. We will go to the new Famenne-Ardenne Geopark under guidance of Prof. Vincent Hallet of the UNamur.

Departure is at 8:30 sharp from the Geo-Institute on the Heverlee Campus and return is expected to be around 18:30.


Alexander Clark

Secretary Geos

Fumarole 12/11 – 15/11/2018

Since my last weather forecast was wrong I shall not do one this week. This week Geos does not have much to do, but the Faculty, Group W&T and Scientica are hosting the Go Global week. This week focuses on going international and is for everyone who wants to go on Erasmus or on international internships. There is also the Bloedserieusweek, where you can give blood that saves lives. A calendar for the Lustrumweek, already in two weeks!, is also attached.

Monday 13 November

It will probably be cold and rainy today, of that I am almost certain. Perfect weather to enjoy delicious, hot pumpkin or peasoup at reasonable prices. Everyone who comes by can also get free drinks for the TD on Thursday! Seems like a no brainer to come by the field next to the 200L.

Thursday 15 November

Are you possibly interested in going on an Erasmus or have no idea what the word means? Then this infosession is perfect for you. All the information you need about scholarships, possible countries you can go to and other student experiences will be given to you. Location is 01.03 in the MTC, it will be indicated, from 18:30 onwards. Hereafter there will be an infomarket with explanation from different, specific countries.

This evening there will be a fantastic TD where you can meet other internationals, Belgians and (future) erasmussers from the many different student organisations that are attending. It’s even free entry until 23:00! A party not worth missing.


This year Geos is turning 55 and we will celebrate that with a lustrum week, which is already in three weeks! Don’t forget that with a few activities you need to register.
