Tot onze enorme ontsteltenis en verdriet overleed op veel te jonge leeftijd en zeer onverwachts, onze collega, docent en vriend Guy Hafkamp.
Guy werkte sinds 2010 bij de afdeling Interactive/Media/Design. In die korte tijd hebben wij hem leren kennen als een buitengewoon integer docent die met een grote betrokkenheid zijn werk en zijn studenten benaderde. Hij was een gerespecteerd en geliefd docent die met onnoemelijk enthousiasme zijn studenten motiveerde
Die positieve levenshouding, daarmee houden wij Guy graag in onze herinnering.
