Welcome freshmen at the Faculty of Physics and Earth Sciences. We are the Elferrat Physik und Geowissenschaften e.V. and we will ensure that, next to the hard everyday university life, fun will not come off badly during the next few weeks.
The highlight of this semester is – of course – the Physikfasching on January 10th, 2020 located at Werk 2. To introduce ourselves and all freshmen events we created a picture-Lovestory in which all the information regarding our freshmen events are provided. During each event you can collect freshmen cards. Just speak to a different member of our Elferrat at each event. If you have collected 5 cards you can get a free mulled wine and if you have 6 you can even get a free ticket to our Physikfasching.
The events of the Elferrat are stylized in orange and those from the student representatives (short FSR or FaRaPhy) in dark blue.
This is what we planned for you the next weeks:

Handcart tour:

Using our handcart filled with beverages we take you to the most important spots for your studies in Leipzig. During this tour you can meet up with your fellow students or ask us anything you want to know. It’s a great opportunity.
On the 2nd of October at 3 p.m. we will be waiting for you to join us at the main entrance of the Physics faculty.
Afterwards the FaRaPhy invites you to their barbecue.
