PhD students build a daybed out of discarded books
The merger between the Department of Organization and parts of the former Department of Business and Politics resulted in a huge pile of books that no one wanted to use.

Monday evening, CBS Students elected David Johannes Treschow Ellebye, who formerly represented CBS Conservative & Liberal Students (CLS), as its new president.
He promises to work to bring back Nexus Thursdays and fight the political reforms.
Is it a cure for writer’s block, or a tool for cheating? Will it bring the end of education as we know it? The latest developments in AI text generators, most famously ChatGPT, are forcing us to rethink writing, teaching and learning.
If you believe that going on exchange is difficult, you might be surprised to learn that there is a space for everyone. Grades and points from extra-curricular activities do matter to some extent, but even with grades at the lower end of the spectrum, an exchange trip is within reach.
Algorithms have a hold on the stock markets that has fuelled the need for regulation. But how do we regulate what we don’t understand?
