About Sorority NYX
Sorority NYX was founded by a group of 7 girls after the summer of 2008, on the 26th of November. The foundation of our sorority has always been friendship. However, we are also all girls with a strong opinion and are not afraid to share that. We are a group of friends who all have different personalities, which makes us the best friends we could ever wish for.
Nil volentibus arduum
Nothing is impossible for those who really want something.
Sorority NYX is a sorority of Student Association Xenia.
On the 30th of May 2002, student association Xenia was born as part of the International Hotel Management School in Breda.
Though it started as a rather small association, we can be proud of what has been achieved after all these years. With approximately 300 members, Xenia has become one of the largest student associations of Breda.
Xenia was considered to be particularly important already in ancient times when the Greek god Xenia stood for hospitality. This is what our association still maintains in their regular events and activities. We share the same perspective and passion for the hospitality industry and that is what Xenia makes one close network of national but also international students.
Outside of Breda, Xenia operates on a national level as well. First of all, Xenia is part of the Alliance: a network of the five well known Hotel Schools in The Netherlands. Furthermore, Xenia has a network with highly approved companies in the hospitality industry, something that provides our Xenia members all kinds of opportunities to professionally explore themselves and to get more involved in the hospitality industry.
Since student association Xenia has been established, it has expanded three times already while giving birth to one mixed fraternity, one fraternity, and two sororities.
G.D. Egidius was the first of Xenia and the first one of Breda where both boys and girls were welcome to share their unforgettable moments together.
Secondly, DD Vigeo was founded on the 22nd of January 2004. Then, on the 26th of November 2008 Xenia gave birth to us, Sorority NYX. Finally, our little brother Fraternity Palto was founded on the 21st of March 2012.

Renee Holten’s father was kind enough to lend us his machine that he currently operates in Shanghai China to create blouses and blazers for the girls of Sorority NYX. This was done out of the kindness of his heart and we are grateful that he was able to take the time and sponsor us with them as we now look dashing and professional in our blouses and blazers.
Since the girls of Sorority NYX were so happy with the product that Mr. Piet Holten delivered, Renee asked if he was again willing to help us out and sponsor something for us. And yes, again Piet was kind enough. This time Piet created shirts with long sleeves for the cold weather that Breda sometimes brings.
Thank you Piet Holten for all your sponsoring, we really appreciate it!
