No debating on Monday the 10th of June!

DTU Semi Serious (29 May)
May 29th, Utrecht
You take ourselves too seriously. You are all handsome and smart but you're a bit uptight. No don't click away you need to hear this. You need to let loose man. Get out of the rigid debate structure where you try to make everyone happy in your world. Deep down you know you can't make everyone happy and never will. So at the very least make sure you're happy. Let's bring in some motions where you can express yourself. We know you always wanted to talk about why we should invade Belgium or ban annoying brats from public transport. Semi Serious just wants to see you smile again and express yourself. Semi Serious is here for you.
