SLAAFS was originally founded out of dissatisfaction with the student council at the Faculty of Science. We saw that the elections were nothing more than a popularity contest and that the party system ensured that no one strongly expressed their own opinions. Parties often take positions that most students agree with and make promises that are unreachable for a student council.
At SLAAFS you join the council for yourself. This ensures that our council members set realistic goals and are motivated to achieve them. At SLAAFS you vote for the person you agree with and you can rest assured that those opinions will not be pushed aside during the first vote within the council.
At SLAAFS we all love beer and we know that most students have this in common with us. That is why we want to give back directly to the faculty by organizing free beer drinks for all students. In order to finance this, our council members donate their grant. This means that our survival depends on our involvement in the student council. Many students will know us from our drinks, without knowing where we come from. Everyone is welcome, so that is certainly not a problem. We do hope to get a lot of support during the elections, so that we can give away as much beer as possible and organize other fun events.
With the two council members we have now we can have a drink every month where we pour 500 L of free beer. Our drinks are always at the Faculty of Science, where our supporters are for the most part. We have our own tap Lindrt which can also serve deliciously cold beer during outdoor drinks in warm weather
