Every week Kwakiutl organizes a borrel on the Thursday nights where all the member are welcome from 21:00 – 01:00. At these borrels you can blow off some steam from a busy week by drinking some beers with your friends or dancing your butt of on the dancefloor to songs you recommended.

Besides the weekly borrel there a also occasionally theme borrels organized by the social committee of Kwakiutl. Like the name theme borrel suggests, this is borrel has a certain theme. To give you an idea about the what kind of theme borrels we organize: a new year’s borrel, a carnaval borrel or a valentines borrel. However, no theme is mandatory, so if you have a super awesome idea for a theme borrel, you should definitely walk up to the social committee and let them know!


Antropologen houden van reizen. De leden van Kwakiutl zijn als echte antropologen op reis helemaal in hun natuurlijke habitat. 


Elk jaar organiseren we drie buitenlandse reizen:

- De etnografische citytrip

- De Kwakiutl liftwedstrijd

- De grote studiereis

Samen ontsnappen we dus drie keer per jaar aan het hectische universiteitsleven in Amsterdam. We zorgen ervoor dat de reizen vol zitten met antropologisch interessante activiteiten en vrije tijd om zelf op avonturenpad te gaan.
