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 FAUWiSo, there are not only a variety of introductory events, but also a very official welcome on October 18, 2021.

On this day, the schools head and the Lord Mayor of the City of Nuremberg, Marcus König, welcomed the first-semester students. The digital welcome was held in German as well as English for the Bachelor’s and Master’s students.

After the welcome, students headed to WiSo’s virtual info fair. More than 30 facilities, institutions, initiatives and company partners of the department presented themselves at the online info fair. Many WiSo institutions, such as the Language Center and the University Library, the student representatives and various service and counseling centers presented themselves there. Student initiatives and company partners offered interesting information and insights. This year, too, new students were able to familiarize themselves with all the possibilities and receive information they need for a successful start to their studies.

In the afternoon, the inner courtyard of WiSo Nuremberg enticed students with a beer garden feeling, including pretzels and drinks, as well as guided tours of the city as part of the mentoring program. Here, the students finally got to know the city and WiSo live. On this day, the popular WiSo first semester bags were also handed out. In the evening, the student councils and initiatives invited to a big get-to-know-you party in Nuremberg’s city center.

Please note: In the coming winter semester, face-to-face teaching will once again be the norm at WiSo. In this context, FAU and WiSo would further like to appeal to all students who have not yet been vaccinated to take advantage of the vaccination centers’ offer, as 3G (i.e. vaccinated, recovered or tested) will be mandatory in the coming semester. This also applies on October 18, 2021.
