During the semester we organize several events, such as those listed below:
- The O-Week
At the beginning of every semester we hold an orientation week where LEI and AAA come together to help students move-in and get organized. For example, we offer a pick-up service from Rostock central station and escort students to their dormitory. We also have have volunteers go with the students to the migration office and help sign up for sports classes at the university.
- Weekly regulars' table ("Stammtisch")
During the semester we organize a regulars' table where all international students, and German students of course, are welcome to take part in discussions and make conversation. You can find current dates on our front page or in the event calendar.
- Various Parties
Our favourite part!
Every semester we organize a welcome party. Usually, we offer some free beer to break the ice :) Afterwards, we play games to get to know each other and party until the morning.
At the end of the semester we also hold a farewell party. Typically, we call it "Das große Fressen". Basically, everyone prepares food, such as popular dishes of their home country, and everyone eats together and party afterwards.
- Two Trips
During the winter semester we take weekend trips to Berlin and the island Rügen.
In Berlin you are able to learn more about the history of Germany and party in one of the hottest places in Europe.
On Rügen, Germany's biggest island, you can see beautiful nature including the Baltic Sea, the Kap Arkona, big chalk rocks, and much more.
During the summer semester we take a weekend trip to Dresden. Here you can visit one of the oldest German cities and go hiking throughout the "Mecklenburgische Schweiz".
Furthermore, we will go on a canoe trip on the lakes of the "Meckenburgische Seenplatte".
By request, we also offer day trips to Hamburg, to the Lübecker Christmas Market, and other various places in our region.
At least once a semester in summer we will have a barbecue at the beach or the "Stadthafen" including food, drinks, and music.
