After over 2 years of hosting Ibners in our lovely house on the Zwanestraat, we are happy to finally become an official Ibn Residence. For those of you who don’t know us yet, we are Emmeline and Ali, two international students both studying in our fourth year of HGP. Emmeline is from the lovely American state of Alabama and is always down to go with you to a nice rave or look at photos of mushrooms. Ali comes from Italy but has actually lived all around the world, in Singapore and Germany too. She’s always up for playing a game of trivia with a glass of wine. As you can see, this is where our house name comes in: Pasta, representing Ali’s Italian heritage and love for the food, and Funghi, representing Emmeline’s love for mushrooms. Together the two ingredients make a perfect dish that resembles our friendship well. When we first moved into our house, we envisioned creating a space where we could host big groups of friends and where everyone felt welcome. From the many committee nights, predrinks, afterparties, and theme parties, we have been very happy to get to host so many Ibners in our beloved home. It is our goal to continue having fun times and making lots of memories in our house with all of our friends from Ibn. We hope to see you soon on the Zwanestraat!
Emmeline and Ali
We are Huize Waterpas, or in English; Spirit Level. Our house was given this name because it is not level at all. Luckily, we don’t mind since we’re all a bit off as well. From game nights to sing a longs, our house evenings are always in high spirit, unless we end up having to work. The three of us all have creative, as well as musical, sides. All of us are always listening to music, which can sometimes make for unclear communication as we are all trying to shout over said music.
In every room you can find original paintings. From Karlijn’s abstract art, to Hiske’s great constructions of objects in life, to all the cat related art that Sarina makes. We also love food. It might look like we are cooking to feed a family of six and the food is finished at an unsettling speed. Especially Karlijn, she might not look like it, but she somehow eats for three (and always gets Sarina’s second portion).
Lots of love,
Hiske, Karlijn & Sarina
