Monthly Topic 10 Start of semester in anniversary year

October - Let's celebrate!

Starting The Semester In Our Anniversary Aear

50 years of Studierendenwerk Kassel - 50 years of welcome culture for students. We are looking forward to the start of the semester - to our students - and have been doing so for 50 years.
On October 15, 1971, we began our work at Studierendenwerk Kassel (which was still called Studentenwerk) - then as now with the mission of accompanying young people from the start of their studies to their successful graduation - so that studying is successful.
The best moment is when we get to meet new students from all over the world. Preferably in person, live and in color, but also online or via video.

Celebrating in the Mensa

Mensa-Hopper on Tour

Starting October 15, our Mensa Hopper will go on tour. As a contrast to the 70s menu with old acquaintances and surprising dishes, there will be varying street food, for example wraps, bowls, ramen or burritos with a colorful selection of toppings, all for the price of 3.50 euros, payable with the Campus Card. You can find out when and where the Mensa Hopper will be located in the tour plan.

By the way: Our Mensa Hopper got its name through a naming contest held by our Instagram community. We thank everyone who participated and congratulate the winners.
