During the grand opening last Wednesday, vice president Prof. Dr. Gabriele E. Schaumann emphasized: “The exhibition demonstrates how international the Landau campus already is.“ “The students featured in the portraits symbolize the internationality at our campus.“

This semester, young women and men from about 80 countries study in Landau. For the exhibition, some of those internationals were invited to take part in a photoshoot of the university shop, and the display of their portraits provides information about their personal “Uni Landau anecdote.“ “Each student has their own story regarding how they found us and how they conduct their studies at the Landau campus,” stated Heidemarie Komor of the Alumni department. Many times, the students do not only focus on their studies, but also volunteer in various ways to support other international students. “They form an active part of our international student body and help their peers as mentors in order to provide them a smooth start at the university,“ states Marion Kraft of the Welcome Center Landau, who initiated and organized the event with Ms. Komor. “They support incoming internationals to make sure they successfully master their everyday life in a country which is foreign to them,“ Kraft added. The pictures were taken by Karin Hiller of the Medienzentrum of the University of Koblenz-Landau.

Those interested are welcome to visit our exhibition, situated on the lower floor of the university library, until the end of October during the library’s opening hours.
