History

The history, foundation and former board members of S.A. DaVinci.

Origin Story

S.A. DaVinci’s foundations date all the way back to September 1999. When a few students from Fontys’ technical deperatments (HTS) founded the study association ‘Technic Sint Juttemis.’ After many deliberations on whether or not this name embodied the technicality enough, S.V.T DaVinci (Studievereniging Techniek DaVinci or Study Association Technics DaVinci) was elected to be the new name of the study association.

The main goal of the study association was to organize activities related to the study programs such as visiting companies and in that way expanding your professional network. However, throughout the years, DaVinci expanded. Not only in the number of members, but also in the activities, which are now much more versatile and not only related to study anymore.

The clearly present demand for parties, group activities and a genuine student culture lead to the brave choice of the 2016 board for transition: from study to student association.

DaVinci could no longer be considered a study association as its focus lied more on leisure activities and had been this way for quite a while. On April 1st 2017, the transition was made official: S.V.T DaVinci had grown from a select group of technical students to a student association opening her arms to all of Venlo’s students.
