Aanschuiven bij Kerkstraat 34b

Dinner @ Kerkstraat 34b

18 March 2016

Cursor visits a studenthouse in Eindhoven every two weeks. The cooks reveal their secret recipes and we get to know the house and it's inhabitants. This time: Dinner @ Kerkstraat 34b.

What kind of house is this?
A mixed bag of seven boys and three girls, ranging from first-year to fourth-year students of various HBO institutions and TU/e, plus a graduate from the Academy for Physical Education inhabits the premises at Kerkstraat. They’re having a party tonight. “The clothes that we have made in accordance with the dress code 'Mermaid man' for the gents and ‘Mussel boys’ for the ladies, a DJ plus rack and nine fridges full of beer”, Marijn Kruijsse enumerates after having been asked what other preparations were made.

Are there any house rules?
“No smoking in the living-room”, is the first one Marijn mentions. “Do your house chores every week”, Dominique Fürst (a third-year student of Industrial Design) adds. “Which means cleaning the kitchen, the corridors and the bathroom, take out the garbage and glass and put out the waste paper.”

Are there any traditions?
“For the annual Christmas dinner - which we usually do not have until January - each duo cooks a dish”, says Koen Hofstraat (a first-year student of Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences). “At World and European Championships we also watch football matches together via the beamer. Then we use beer creates to build a stand. Great fun”, says Marit Welten (a fourth-year student of Human Resource at Fontys).
