Pre-Event Tbilisi and EPM Yerevan 2018

Tbilisi3

Before the EPM in Yerevan (the capital of Armenia), a pre-event in Tbilisi (the capital of Georgia) took place. From the 4th of March until the 7th of March, me and a bunch of AEGEEans discovered the impressive hospitable Tbilisi and its surroundings by a city tour, which also included some challenges. Moreover, we participated in lectures and workshops about the South Caucasus, Conflict Management and the Eastern Partnership Project. We did a bus trip to other Georgian places like the ancient capital. And of course we celebrated our mandatory European Night together.

Last weekend the first Rhein-Neckar-Stammtisch of 2018 took place in Kaiserslautern, in which AEGEE-Mannheim also participated with 4 members. The Rhein-Neckar-Stammtisch is always a great opportunity to speak about one’s plans for the upcoming months, share knowledge, ask for cooperation and offer some help. Read here what AEGEE-Kaiserslautern and the Golden Times wrote about the event:


Last saturday there was our annual AEGEE-event „Rhein-Neckar-Stammtisch“. Together with twelve participants and two speakers, we had an exciting time…



The consequences of the Brexit and an outlook on the AEGEE year 2018 were some of the highlights of the annual „Rhein-Neckar-Stammtisch“ yesterday in the German city Kaiserslautern…

Our trip to Eindhoven

AEGEE-Mannheim at the Lasertag Gym

As part of an exchange AEGEE-Eindhoven visited us in late October. During the 16th of November and the 19th of November we switched roles and went to visit them during the internationally known „Glow Festival“ along with members from other antennae throughout Europe. In total we were 6 people from Mannheim going. 4 by car and 2 by train.

When we arrived on Thursday in the late evening, we were welcomed by our host who had made stroopwafels for us – super sweet, but very delicious!

The first evening we experienced a game called „Cantus“. In the beginning it was a little bit frightening because there were three men, called the senators, who told us to sing songs from a song book and were very strict...

It´s Lasertag again!

lasertag-1467228_1920

Following our weekly meeting last week, we had our first Member’s Event for this semester. As it became a tradtition we went to Neckarstadt to play Lasertag again. After we arrived there and changed our clothes (it is advisable to wear black clothes – you are easily spotted with lighter clothes), we started with a short delay into a funny competition.

We had to show our skills in teams in a dark room filled with walls and obstacles. The action techno beats hammered out of the loudspeakers. It was difficult „not to shoot down or overrun your own team members. Not everyone succeeded in that! I was one of them. In the end I had only a few plus points more than minus points. Quite in contrast to the best of us...

Building Bridges into the Migrationside of Europe – Network Meeting Gaziantep

9

The NWM in Gaziantep was a great success! It took place from the 18th to the 22nd of October and we had everything: A nice hotel, delicious Turkish food (every time in a restaurant) and interesting workshop and sessions (everything for only a 30€ participation fee!). About 30 participants came from different Turkish antennas, 4 from Germany (Mannheim, Aachen, Dresden, Berlin), 2 from the Netherlands, 1 from Russia and 1 from Hungary. Loes (President of AEGEE-Europe) and Reka (former President) have also been there.

We all were a bit surprised that Gaziantep is a big modern city with a relatively high standard of living, many students and open-minded inhabitants – in South-East Turkey, very close to the Syrian border...

AEGEE-Eindhoven is coming into town!

The whole exchange crew

From the 20th of October to the 22nd of October we had some visitors from AEGEE-Eindhoven in our town. When they arrived on friday in the afternoon, we welcomed them with a typical – zünftig – German Dinner – Maultaschen!

Later in the evening we went out for a Pub Crawl to a few popular bars in Mannheim. One of it being „Filmriss“ (hangover in English, it really meets its name!!) or Nelson and played drinking games to get to know each other.

The next day (after some of us got woken up early and roughly by the neighbours drilling), thankfully without any hangover, we all came together at our university to have a city rally game. For this some members of our board put all their thoughts together and invented a new kind of City Tour...

AEGEE-Mannheim at the International Day 2017

International Day

As one of a few student organisations with an international focus we were asked by the University of Mannheim to take part in the International Day 2017 at the 21st of September to celebrate 30 years of ERASMUS. Established in 1983 the ERASMUS Programme aims at increasing the mobility and chances of young Europeans as well as fostering the cultural exchange inbetween Europe as a whole. Until now 9 million students benefitted from the programme and have been mobilized across borders.

During the International Day we were present with an Infodesk in the „Alte Lehrbuchsammlung“ where we gave information about the vision and the work of AEGEE-Mannheim and AEGEE-Europe and how AEGEE is related to the ERASMUS Programme...

21167034_1661703097182238_5568583410913553101_o

When a new semester starts in Mannheim, the recruting season starts for us. So there are always some dates to mark in the calendar. The Initiatives Market, the Welcome Reception for International Students and our Semester Kickoffs. These are all events that we use to introduce ourselves and our work to interested students – national or international.

At the Initiatives Market on August 29th in the Alte Lehrbuchammlung, where every initiative of the University of Mannheim introduces itself, we had a whole day to convince the new freshmen (mostly German students) to stop by our desk and not everyone else’s. To do so we brought maps, flags, info sheets and our valuable experience to win new members and invited them to our two Kickoffs on September 7th and 12th.

At the Welcome Reception, whi...
