Plutonica is a mixed student corporations, founded
in 1993 at the Limburgs Universitair Centrum (now University of Hasselt) by
Peter Dirix and Michaël Goorts. In
the first place, Plutonica wanted to be a amical
band between people who have studied at the LUC and of Limburg students in
whole Flanders. Plutonica also accepted non Limburg
members, if they supported our basic principles.
Because the founders and a great part of the members were now studying at
the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, the city of Louvain has become the
centre of our activities. The Limburg character of
Plutonica is mixed with the long and rich Louvain
student tradition. The members (studying in Louvain and
Brussels) often join in Louvain at happenings organised by the
corporation, including "cantus" and other traditional nights. Our colours are
blue, white and green.
We represent (without being too conservative or too formal) a tradition that
seems strange for a lot of contemporary students. It is a form of pleasure
that is disappearing. Plutonica observes a strict
neutrality at the ideological, political and religious level. Of course, our
members are allowed to have their own opinions, but they have to show
respect for other opinions in a spirit of tolerance and without impliciting
Amicality and fraternity are the basic principles of our association and of
the real student life. We are always pleased to contact other student
associations. That is why we were a founding member of the Ordo Academicus
Burgundiensis , an organisation of "traditional" student
associations in the Low Countries. Since 2016, we are recognised by the KVSR and the European umbrella organisation EKV.
