Information, sports & fun – during early October this was how 2000 first-year students started their studies at the JKU.
The kick-off to the new semester included a JKU welcome bag, campus tours, a sustainability-themed scavenger hunt, and lots of information about life and studies at the JKU. Designed to welcome students to campus and make everyday student life a little nicer, the JKU’s Welcome Week program was diverse, featuring beach volleyball, soccer, and beer pong tournaments. The students enjoyed the various activities and ‘romance was even in the air’ during the first trial Mensa party as new couple got together, having met during their joint campus tour on the first day. Despite the strict safety protocols in lieu of the coronavirus pandemic, it was a successful start to the 2020 Winter Semester - for students & employees alike!
