First-year student’s welcome event
Start of Studies: Welcome for first-year students
New life, new friends, new city: To ensure that first-year students quickly feel at home at FAU WiSo, there is not only a variety of introductory events, but also a very official welcome on October 16, 2023.
On this day, the school’s head and the Lord Mayor of the city of Nuremberg, Marcus König, welcome the first semester students. The welcome takes place for the Bachelor students and Master students in German as well as in English.
After the welcome, the students are invited to attend the WiSo information fair. More than 30 facilities, institutions, initiatives and corporate partners of the school will introduce themselves at the fair. Many WiSo institutions, such as the Language Center and the University Library, the student representatives and various service and counseling centers present themselves there. Student initiatives and corporate partners offer interesting information and insights. New students can familiarize themselves with all the possibilities and receive information they need for a successful start of their studies.
In the afternoon, the inner courtyard of WiSo Nuremberg will be the venue for our get-together, including pretzels and drinks. Additionally, the mentoring program offers the WiSo Meet & Explore as an opportunity to get to know WiSo, the city of Nuremberg, and fellow students. On this day the popular WiSo first semester bags will also be handed out. In the evening, the student councils and initiatives invite the new students to a welcome party in the city center Nuremberg.
