Celebrating ten years of the student council stuvus at the University of Stuttgart. Stuvus members are usually involved in committees and meetings and launching initiatives for excellent teaching and sustainability, but from July 14 to 16 they will be celebrating what they have achieved over the years, with special performances from live acts and even a Bavarian sausage breakfast.
"I would like to congratulate stuvus on its tenth anniversary. Your commitment is indispensable for our university. We appreciate your points of view, your ideas and initiatives," said Rector Prof. Wolfram Ressel in an address to students. "Thank you for your committment! We have always found constructive solutions, even when facing major challenges. We are looking forward to continuing this cooperation in the future."
Whether welcoming new students, optimizing teaching and learning conditions, or sustainability in action: The student council stuvus is involved in many initatives at the University of Stuttgart. "Campus would be very different without stuvus," says board member Anna Dannecker. "We're proud of what we've been able to accomplish and implement over the past decade. This motivates us on to continue to successfully advocate for students' interests in teaching and learning."
Shaping university policy and campus life
stuvus has representatives in many committees at the university, in order to help shape university policy decisions. "We are passionate about the topics of teaching and sustainability," said Dannecker.
Problems and challenges in teaching, for example the abrupt switch to digital teaching and learning during the Corona pandemic, are addressed by stuvus representatives and lecturers. They also organize orientation programs for first-year students to get to know each other and network, and support services during exam periods. Sustainability is also an important concern that is reflected in many initiatives, such as the "Green Canteen", which works with the Studierendenwerk Stuttgart to promote sustainable food options in the canteens and cafeterias.
"For our students to feel comfortable on campus, it requires more than optimal teaching conditions and good exam organization - it requires space for exchange and leisure time," emphasizes Ressel to the student council. "That's why I'm delighted to see stuvus activites, such as Campus Beach, which you've now revived after the Corona hiatus."
Party in the pavilion, instead of committee work in the senate hall
stuvus invites all students to join in the celebrations. From July 14 to 16, the celebrations will take place in a marquee on the Vaihingen campus (parking lot, Pfaffenwaldring 10/2). An exciting program is on offer, with Night of the 90s, Electro-Party and a Bavarian sausage breakfast. Students can purchase tickets on the stuvus website.
