Pyrus, het vierde element
Volgens de oude Grieken bestond de wereld uit vier elementen: aarde, water, lucht en vuur. Met behulp van de studie kan men kennis maken met de elementen de bodem, het water en de atmosfeer. Via de studievereniging wordt het vierde element (vuur) geïntroduceerd. Pyrus heeft namelijk zijn naam te danken aan een verbastering van het Griekse woord pyr (vuur).
Studievereniging Pyrus heeft als doel het versterken van de band tussen studenten onderling en tussen studenten en docenten. Deze doelen worden bereikt door veel activiteiten te organiseren, zoals (kennismakings-)weekenden, excursies, borrels en lezingen. In de loop van de jaren heeft onze vereniging een aantal jaarlijks terugkerende evenementen op de agenda gezet, zoals de Kaasfondue en de Studentenkampioenschappen Grondboren. Bij het SK Grondboren gaat het er om zo snel mogelijk 1.20 meter diep te boren. Vele teams, van binnen en buiten Wageningen, werken zich hierbij in het zweet.
Naast het aanbod van de vele activiteiten, is het doordeweeks van 12:30 uur - 13:30 uur altijd gezellig in het enige echte Pyrushok.
Kortom: Pyrus geeft net dat extra element aan de studie bodem, water en atmosfeer.
