Student Orientation Week 2006

American Studies Leipzig has held its second annual Student Orientation Week (SOW). The goals of SOW 2006 were to introduce students to the new BA Program in American Studies, to allow students to get to know each other, and to acquaint the incoming BA Class of 2006 to the broader American Studies Community in Leipzig. Events were held over a period of three days.

Professor Anne Koenen opened the orientation program with a hearty welcome. Students were then provided an overview of the program, individual counseling, a warm welcome by the American Consulate, advising sessions on internships and study abroad, a tour of the university library and the American Studies Frank Freidel Library, and a roundtable discussion with American Studies alumni that was hosted by the American Studies Alumni Association. The Student Orientation Week 2006 was wrapped up with an afternoon barbeque where students and staff could mingle and relax after three busy and fun days of coming together to start the new academic year.
