Students, alumni and residents: all of Utrecht goes outside to marvel at the university's lustrum celebrations. Modern-day lustrum celebrations aren't as lavish as they used to be, so we highly recommend visiting the exchibition Heel Utrecht loopt uit!, which debuted on June 17 at the Utrecht Archives. Covering UU's lustrum celebrations between 1901 and 1961, the exhibition is also accompanied by a coffee table book featuring pictures and explanations.
