All former students of the University of Freiburg are invited to the international Alumni Meeting in Freiburg from 8 to 10 July 2016. The "alumni weekend" offers insight into the current research and teachings of the faculties as well as the opportunity to explore the new University Library opened in 2015.
Do you remember your time as a student: how you acquired new knowledge, spent long evenings at the library, and celebrated successful exams and presentations with your friends at the end of the summer semester? The Alumni Meeting 2016 is a chance to refresh your memory of this exciting time of your life. All faculties are holding a variety of events for former students on Friday, 8 July.
Rector Professor Schiewer would like to introduce the alumni to one of the university’s most spectacular innovations in person: the new University Library (UB). After six years of renovations, it has again opened its doors on Platz der Universität. The spectacular new building provides 1700 workspaces, around 3.5 million books and other media, and a wide array of self-service amenities for patrons and runs on only 65 percent as much energy as the previous building. The library’s holdings are available to students around the clock: 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Alumni are of course also welcome to use the modern UB.
And maybe you’ll also meet old friends or professors from your time as a student. Then you can relax together at the end of the alumni weekend – like in old times – at one of Freiburg’s charming beer gardens.
We’re looking forward to your visit!
Your Freiburg Alumni Team
