What is EFR?

EFR is the largest and most professional student association of the Netherlands. EFR organizes alot of interesting activities for all bachelor students of the Erasmus University Rotterdam, specifically for ESE. These activities fall into one of three categories; namely social, academic, and career. These activities range from the introduction weekend for all first years, to social drinks, to the EFR-Business Week. In the past, we have had the honor of hosting world renowned leaders such as General David Patraeus, Benjamin Netanyahu, Jose Manuel Barroso, Gerhard Schroder, Frederik Willem de Klerk, Jan Peter Balkende, and many many more!

Furthermore, at the beginning of every block, EFR sells books for ALL bachelor 1 and 2 students, and a selection of books for Bachelor 3 students. These books are always the correct version, and are sold at absolute bottom prices! In otherwords, we have the cheapest books on campus!

What can EFR do for YOU?

Everyone can take part in events organised by EFR. However, members receive a discount for activities which charge a registration fee. Furthermore, only EFR members can buy books from efr. The booksale alone is (financial) reason enough to become a member. The EFR-Booksale can save you as much as 15% on books, which we know you can put to better use.

Furthermore, every student at the Erasmus University has the opportunity to become active in one of our 17 different committees.

How does the booksale work?

During the first one and a half weeks of the new block, EFR sells books for the lowest possible price. You can either come and buy them in the C-Hall or order them in our webshop to avoid queues. In order to buy our books, you must be a member of EFR.
