Already halfway the second semester, the First Year Committee would like to invite you to participate in our very first Culture Cafe! Our goal is to provide you the opportunity to get to know even more people of different cultures and nationalities, and of course have a wonderful evening together! So, if you want to teach other people something about your culture and learn about the culture of others, whilst enjoying a beer and a snack; feel free to join us! The evening will be filled with a lot of talking and maybe some games (if you feel like it). Beer and snacks from all over the world will be available, but please feel free to bring something of your culture as well! It is not mandatory to bring something yourself, but we would appreciate it a lot!

The Culture Cafe will take place on April 23. It will start at 07:00 PM and will end around 09:00 PM! The location will be announced soon, but if you sign up, we will give you an update as soon as we know the location! The perfect amount of participants for this event is around 25-30 people, so it would be really great if you could join! Signing up is possible until Thursday, April 18 11:00 PM. You can sign up via this link!
