Introduction for new employees

This morning I and other UU newbies received a formal introduction to our new place of work including a tour of University Hall, the university's public face and ceremonial heart. According to the website "It was here that the Treaty of Utrecht was signed in 1579, an event that is generally viewed as marking the origin of the Dutch nation. When Utrecht University was founded in 1636 it was given the Auditorium by the city." The building sure breathes history!
