Het Taalminnend Studenten Genootschap (language-loving student society) ‘t Zal Wel Gaan was founded in 1852 in Ghent under the slogan ‘Klauwaard en Geus’. ‘t Zallers (members of ‘t Zal Wel Gaan) are the free thinking of the UGent - known for their obstinacy, critical spirit and, oh yes, their historical battle against the ‘tsjeven’ (the Christian Democrats). Given the fact that ‘t Zal is the oldest still existing student association in Flanders, there is a rich history with countless traditions that still manifest itself, sometimes in a more contemporary form. It draws from its liberal, Orangist, language-loving, humanist, progressive, feminist, antifascist and anarchist ideals propagated by its members throughout the years in varying waves. Today ‘t Zal unites students willing to rise above religious, political and ideological boundaries. Every Tuesday night we come together for lectures and debates by candlelight under the slogan ‘niemands knecht, niemands meester’ (no one’s servant, no one’s master) and ‘nie geluve!’ (don’t believe). We often invite a guest speaker to introduce a certain topic, after which the rest of the night is dedicated to group discussions. In dark 19th century rooms we make fun of crucifixes and everything else that can restrict a free mind, and dream of truely free sex - what is that in fact? We philosophize about current political, ideological and religious topics; one hand slamming on the table, the other holding a trappist beer. Here you will find communist individualists, porncollecting feminists, weightlifting poets, left handed economists and so on.
