Umbrella associations


What is Olympus?

Olympus is the umbrella association where all study associations of the beta-faculty are a member. Olympus tries to serve the interests of its member associations and the beta students, and it also tries to bring the students of the various associations closer together.

What does Olympus do?

Next to what is mentioned above, Olympus takes care of a plethora of affairs in and around the shared canteens. Here you can enjoy a delicious (special) tosti during the break or other snacks. Also outside the breaks you can go there for a soda or a candy bar. Furthermore, in the canteens the drinks hosted by the study associations take place. The Voorraadcie makes sure there is always plenty of stock for the drinks. Next to taking care of the canteens, Olympus organises the amazing BeestFeest in Doornroosje six times a year, a couple of drinks, the movie-night (a movie-marathon where you can watch movies in the faculty until 4 AM), LAN-parties, the Olympus day in the intro, and election debates.
