Following our alumni receptions in New York and Washington D.C. last year, we are looking forward to a meeting for all Göttingen alumni living or currently staying on the West Coast!

The event takes place on August 27 2017 in the wonderful surroundings of the International House on the University of California Berkeley campus. The International House is a multicultural residential “living and learning” center of nearly 600 students and scholars from 70+ countries attending the University of California Berkeley.

We are delighted to announce that the president of the University of Göttingen, Professor Dr. Ulrike Beisiegel, will be in attendance and update you about recent developments at the Göttingen Campus.

After the formal part of the day, we will end the day with a cozy barbecue - and plenty of time and space to catch-up, reminisce and network with old and new friends. Please feel free to bring your partner or spouse.

The event is free of charge. Places are limited and allocated on a strictly first-come, first-serve basis.
Please register as soon as possible, but latest by August 20, when registration closes.

We are looking forward to seeing you in California. In order to reach out to as many alumni as possible, we kindly ask you to forward this invitation to other alumni you are still in touch with.

You aren’t be able to take part in the meeting or want to organize a Göttingen Alumni event in your area? Get in touch with us! We support alumni initiatives and provide you with know-how and information to connect you to fellow alumni.
