What?It is common knowledge that friendships are forged when alcohol is consumed. So that's why we organize a cantus Saturday evening.

For those who don't know the concept, Wikipedia does a pretty good job in explaining this intriguing phenomen. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cantus) Although it might sound weird, don't be mistaken: it is so much fun and you should give it a try!

For those that have had the pleasure already to have experienced a cantus, I hope you add this cantus to your list.

Note: Io Vivat at 20:30. This means the doors will close at 20:30 and that if you are not in the building by that time that you won't be able to participate.
