A message from our FSI


Dear AnglAms,

We hope to find you in good health and better spirits in these challenging times!

Even though the digitalisation of most of our seminars has granted us insights into academic subjects as well as our fellow students' apartments, it cannot be denied that there's still something missing - the sometimes lively, sometimes more sober exchange with your peers in the cafeteria, the café ct at UL6 or maybe even just on your way to the next lecture.

In order to make up for these unfavourable conditions at least a bit, we encourage you to join the AnglAm HU Discord-Server. Here you can find people to join your study groups and exchange ideas with you over voice chat, and share your confusion as well as your ideas and knowledge with other AnglAms.

Last but not least, we'd like to remind you of the even brighter side of life - our Discord-Server also offers less formal, exciting digital activities: We will be digitalising our game nights; and thanks to our excessive nerdhood, we will be keeping you inspired and happy with our popcultural recommendations from the Anglophone sphere - while also providing a channel in which we can enjoy said recommendations together.

Best wishes,
Your FSI AnglAm
