Because of the coronavirus we are less together. Education is mainly given online, there are no introduction festivals or parties, and you're mainly at home. We realize that the 'together' feeling is extremely important. That is why Tilburg University is introducing the hashtag battle 'Battle of the Gram' #wearetilburguniversity during the first block of the academic year 2020/2021. It is THE social media challenge in which students - new and old, national and international - show who they are and compete for a spot on the Instagram account tilburguniversity.
