When the school has started again, you wish for your holidays again. This is also possible during studies, hard to believe! After you’ve gotten to know the university and the city and the first lectures are over, take a vacation! Of course not alone: Together with many other first-year students from your degree programme, we’re off to our famous freshmen weekend. This is the perfect way to strengthen new friendships with your fellow students, meet new people and celebrate student life for a weekend after the first week.

Together with the freshmen of Sociology and Political Science, as well as many student representatives, we will go to Michelstadt in the Odenwald from 14.10.-16.10.  A weekend full of cosy atmosphere, colourful evenings and joint activities awaits you there.

You can register until September 15, 2019 via the registration form linked above. Please keep in mind that the registration is only successful if the participation fee is paid in cash in the student council room by September 18th. Please bring your ecUM (student ID) with you for the payment. After the registration nothing stands in the way of a successful and relaxed weekend.

So that you can prepare in advance for the weekend, here is a small packing list:

  • Sleeping bag, fitted sheet and, if required, a pillow/additional blanket
  • Sturdy footwear (suitable for woods and meadows)
  • Sports shoes and clothing
  • Flashlight
  • Warm clothes (it can get very cold especially in the evening)
  • Semester ticket (if available)
  • Ohropax
  • Money for beer (there is no cash machine nearby)
  • Good mood and sunshine in your hearts


The freshmen weekend is for many the highlight of their first weeks of study and helps a lot to get to know their new friends better – this is definitely a MUST for YOU and all other freshmen!

We look forward to seeing you!
