SV Babel is the study association for the bachelor, master & minor of linguistics in Utrecht. According to some of her members, Babel stands for ‘baken in het bestaan van een linguïst’, which roughly translates to ‘b(e)acon in the being of a linguist’, which works almost as well. Babel could also be named after the story of the tower of Babel, we suppose. Babel organises all sorts of different activities such as lectures, drinks, film nights, sports days, and much more! Babel is very close to the study itself and works on the introduction days as well.
SV Babel was officially founded in 2004, our 20th birthday is on the 15th of January 2024!
