ABC Compas is a student association for students that have an affinity with Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao. An association where Dutch Caribbean students can feel at home.
ABC Compas is a non-profit student association founded by TU Delft students in 2011. In the beginning the association targeted students from Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao that came to the Netherlands to study engineering at TU Delft. However, over the years the association has grown and now welcomes all Dutch Caribbean students, regardless of their study. Nevertheless, we will always have a special place for engineering students.
We strive to make members feel at home by organizing both social activities and career & study related events. That’s why our motto is “sinti bo na [k/c]as!” (feel at home!). The social activities create a casual environment for our members to connect, and above all, to have fun. Career & study related events help our members develop their skills and learn useful tips and insights that they can use for their careers later on.
One of our priorities is to help first-year students with getting settled in the Netherlands. This is why we organize multiple introductory activities where the students can get tips about starting up their lives in the Netherlands. We also provide buddies for students that want a bit of extra help.
