ORAS IN A NUTSHELL
Oras is the largest and oldest party in the Central Student Council. ORAS has a special focus on personal development through extracurricular activities, but we think qualitative education and supporting facilities are equally important. ORAS has been deeply involved in Delft’s student life for 46 years and receives a lot of information from students via numerous student organizations. The goal of ORAS is to create an environment in which students can excel and become excellent engineers in their field. To achieve this, students should be able to develop themselves both inside and outside their studies. The university should offer high quality education and adequate facilities, but should also stimulate extra-curricular activities such as sports, participation in student organizations and should foster the development of organizational skills. ORAS keeps close contact with students and staff members of the TU. We consider this as the most effective way to improve the TU and realize your wishes!
Over 10% of all the students at TU Delft have an international background. The Student Council party ORAS sees this as an enrichment, but recognizes that there is still a lot to do to solve the problems international students encounter.
