First Rhein-Neckar-Stammtisch of 2018 in Kaiserslautern


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…

It´s Lasertag again!


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...

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...

Castlemania – get to know the SUnny side of the Kurpfalz! English Please!


Summer Universities are known to be the most famous and popular events within AEGEE. After AEGEE-Mannheim organised the last SU in 2014 and several of our members helped AEGEE-Heidelberg out with their SU in 2016, it was therefore not far away this year to join forces and organise a common SU!

Preparations began more than six months in advance: After the joint decision in December, the first organisation team often sat together until late into the evening to clarify the framework conditions: How many participants would we invite? Where would we put them? In which period should the SU take place? And most importantly: under which motto should it run?

After many considerations the first program of our SU, which we called Castlemania – get to know the SUnny side of the Kurpfalz!, was drafte...

Castlemania – get to know the SUnny side of the Kurpfalz!


Summer Universities sind bekanntermaßen die berühmtesten und beliebtesten Events innerhalb von AEGEE. Nachdem AEGEE-Mannheim das letzte Mal 2014 eine SU veranstaltet hatte und mehrere unserer Mitglieder AEGEE-Heidelberg bei ihrer SU 2016 aushalfen, lag es deshalb nicht fern, dieses Jahr sich zusammen zu tun und eine gemeinsame SU zu organisieren!

Die Vorbereitungen begannen bereits über ein halbes Jahr im Voraus: Nach dem gemeinsamen Beschluss im Dezember saß das erste Organisationsteam oft bis spät in den Abend zusammen, um die Rahmenbedingungen zu klären: Wie viele Teilnehmer würden wir einladen? Wo würden wir sie unterbringen? In welchem Zeitraum soll die SU stattfinden? Und am wichtigsten: unter welchem Motto soll sie laufen?

Nach vielen Überlegungen stand schließlich das erste...

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...

Members Event: Escape Room

AEGEE-Mannheim doing Escape Room

Zugegeben, wir bei AEGEE haben ja schon einiges erlebt, aber aus einem Gefängnis auszubrechen?
Das haben wir uns eigentlich nicht zugetraut.

Um ehrlich zu sein, aus der JVA Mannheim sind wir nicht entkommen, aber unser abendlicher Ausflug zum „Escape Room Mannheim“ hat uns vor mindestens genauso große Schwierigkeiten gestellt. In Vierergruppen aufgeteilt, wurden wir entweder im Labor, einem Schlachthof oder natürlich dem Gefängnis eingesperrt und hatten gerade einmal 60 Minuten Zeit, um zu flüchten. Dazu muss man einfach den Türschlüssel suchen. Klingt leicht, ist es aber nicht. Den findet man nämlich nur, wenn man vorher die im ganzen Raum versteckten Rätsel löst, gefühlt hundert Codes knackt und etliche Schlösser öffnet...

CD on Track

170302 (2)_L

As part of the CD’s trip to visit most of the antennae of AEGEE last weekly CD-member Tekla Hajdu has visited us in Mannheim and talked with us about AEGEE in general and our development as an antenna. The nice meeting in the N1 lounge was also joined by Mareike, our current Network Commissioner from AEGEE Heidelberg.

The talks mainly focused on three areas: The work of the Comité Directeur in Brussels and the jobs of the different CD members. Tekla could give us valuable insights in the CD’s working procedures, funds, and daily live. Did you know that the CD is not funded by the member’s fees but by European funds? We also talked about financial matters concerning event organisation, which where the second focus that evening...
