Dear reader,

We from the introduction committee would like to welcome you to our webpage. We want to take this opportunity to tell you a few things about what this committee stands for, and what we do. The introduction committee arranges the grand welcome for new students, both bachelor's and master's. Our main priority is to facilitate a pleasant and informative first impression of the Security Studies Bachelor, Crisis & Security Management Master, and LSA Custodia itself. That is why we are seen in public at the start of the academic year, but we work the entire year behind the scenes to organize these introduction activities. This does not however mean that you won’t spot us and other Custodia members that the Leiden University Open Days! Our team is made up of five members who each fulfill a different task, resulting in a harmonic way of cooperation. Our objective this year is to organize an amazing First Year Trip for Security Studies Bachelor students. We look forward to seeing you at the start of the upcoming academic year or during the Open Days!
