International Dinner – July 31

!!! DATE AND VENUE OF THE EVENT HAVE BEEN CHANGED !!!

Finally, the time has come for our first offline event of this semester!!

After waiting a looooong time we are excited to invite you to our International Dinner. 
This traditional event has always been one of our favorites. After all, who doesn’t like a great dinner with lots of different dishes from around the world?!

Here´s the basic idea: Everybody prepares a typical dish from his or her native country and shares it with the other international students.

You want to participate in this event? Then please sign up through the list that we posted in the facebook event and let us know which dish you are going to prepare (if you don’t use facebook, write us an e-mail).

Due to the pandemic, the number of participants will be limited. Furthermore, we will provide you with a hygiene concept to minimize the risk of infection. If you don´t prepare a meal from your native country you can still join us. However, as a matter of fairness to the students who contributed dishes to the dinner you´ll have to pay a small entrance fee (10€). This also applies to ready prepared meals that were bought at a supermarket!

When? Saturday, July 31 (8:00 pm)
Where? Katholische Hochschulgemeinde (KHG) Wuppertal , Oberer Grifflenberg 158

We will provide Alcoholic and Non-Alcoholic Beverages (due to security reasonsyou cannot bring your own beverages) and afterwards there will be an afterparty with great music and some surprises 😉

Please note, that we can only carry out the event if the number of infections will allow it.

We´re looking forward to tasting your dishes and discovering the cultural diversity of your native cuisines!
 

Cheers, your IST-Team!

Vaccination for Students of the BUW

The Wuppertal Vaccination Centre is now offering a vaccination bridge for students of our university. Students can register for participation in this Moodle Course.

Every day, the Vaccination Centre sends out SMS with the request to go to the Vaccination Centre at short notice (with a specific appointment within one to two hours). The surplus vaccination doses of the day will then be vaccinated there for those who decide to come at short notice.

It doesn’t matter whether you are an international student, Erasmus student or German citizen. All you need to do is enrol for the moodle course, click on „Registrierung der Telefonnummer“ and insert your phone number. 

The fact that all those willing to be vaccinated will be able to complete the full vaccination programme by the start of lectures in WS 21/22 or shortly thereafter will  probably be reflected in the legal framework for an attendance presence teaching programme. So make an effort now to get vaccinated as soon as possible!

For further information on the vaccination in multiple languages visit the website of the city of Wuppertal.

Powerpoint Karaoke

For our next online game night we are planning something special for you: a Powerpoint Karaoke!

„What on earth is that?“ you may ask.

Powerpoint Karaoke (also known as Battle Decks) is a game with very simple rules: The presenter or presenting team gets a deck of Powerpoint slides they have never seen before and must convincingly hold a presentation about it. We created some fun random slides about different topics and are excited about what you’re gonna tell us about them 😉

Don’t worry! You don’t need any knowledge about specific topics, it’s just about improvising and inventing your own funny interpretations of the slides. Besides, you will be presenting in teams, so in case you get stuck, your teammates can help you out.

When? Thursday, 17th of June, 8 pm

Where? Via zoom (zoom link will be shared on facebook and whatsapp before the event)

You can sign up here for the event.

After the game we will leave the meeting open to have some drinks and talks together or maybe play some more online games.

See you next Thursday on zoom!
