This week marked the arrival of the international students to the EUF (Europa-Universität Flensburg) for the upcoming spring semester. This year there was a diverse group of students as they have arrived from all 4 corners of the planet from Argentina to Austria and Palestine to Portugal.
After 23 years here at Europa-Universität Flensburg (EUF) our secretary in the European Cultures and Society (EUCS) department Rosi Gerlich will be moving on, come the beginning of March, in order to open a new chapter in her life. Before she leaves we in the department caught up with Rosi in order to reflect on her time here at EUF. We also met up with our incoming secretary Cécile Votteler where we discuss her previous experiences and how she is looking forward to her new role here at EUF.
On Wednesday the 13th of February four representatives from Europa-Universität Flensburg (EUF) got off to an early start and made the journey to Husum where they attended a careers fair in the Berufliche Schule des kreises Nordfriesland. Many students attended this fair due to the presence of many higher-level institutions and businesses. The fair was mainly aimed at students in their final year of high school.
Exhibition "Comradeship – Drifting on those lost at sea" now open!
Students of the "European University Flensburg", who are currently studying "European Cultures and Society", invite you to be part of a story about solidarity and comradeship. The opening ceremony of the exhibition took place last Sunday, 8th April, 2018 and can be visited until Saturday, 14th April. The simple tomb of a sailor served as inspiration for the exhibition, which revolves around the cholera infected sailor of the West-Indies, "Peter Thomson", and his fellow crew members on the ship. Thomson died in 1850, after he had been denied entrance to the harbour of Flensburg, his hometown, due to the risk of infection. He was buried by his comrades at the Northern shore of Holnis. A collection of driftwood pieces, which symbolise Thomson and his crew, should allow the viewer of the exhibition to make personal associations and encourage their imagination.
"Comradeship – Drifting on those lost at sea" was created under the banner of an instruction-based project of the tutorial "Art and Scenography", a course of the study program "European Cultures and Society". Where? Modul 1, Rote Straße 17, 24937 Flensburg, When? 8th April – 13th April, 4-8 pm, 14th April, 12 am – 6 pm
