Every now and then, we all need to cut loose and take a break from the hard studying. If you find yourself in such a time, Galaxy is there for you! Throughout the year, we organise numerous fun socials (borrels). We take over a bar somewhere in Groningen where you have the opportunity to chat, dance and sometimes even sing together with your fellow astronomers, all with a cold beverage in hand. Besides the borrels, each year Galaxy organises a gala somewhere around the first week of March, to celebrate Sirius A's birthday (Dies Natalis). On this night, we all dress our best and spend a night full of dancing and having fun at some of the city's fanciests locations.
