What is our mission?

As a Student Council party, VeSte represents and supports active students of the WUR. Those are students that are willing to develop themselves both inside and outside the classroom.

Who is VeSte?

VeSte (Verenigde Studenten, United Students) is a Student Council party founded in 1997 by members of the Contractus student associations in order to represent these associations and their members in the newly founded Student Council of Wageningen University (WUR). Over the years, VeSte has sought to become more inclusive by cooperating with various kind of organisations, both within Wageningen and on a national and international level. VeSte represents active students, which forms the core of its identity. The VeSte faction 2017-2018 is keen on representing this group of students this year.

We often discuss ongoing matters such as safe bike routes in Wageningen, International BSc programmes and proper ways to integrate these new BSc students in the @uniwageningen community with our friends of SAW. #summervibes #firstsummerbeer #studentunion
