Small excursion with students of sommer program 2020
The Studienkolleg students and the Studienkolleg team went on 28.07.2020 on a small excursion in Cologne together. Since the beginning of the summer program in April, the students had only online courses for the most time. As the situation becomes better these days, all the participants, and also the SK team, could finally come together and do the trip together.
In the beautiful summer weather, the students took a tour in Rodenkirchen and also along the Rhine in the morning. Afterwards, everyone enjoyed the tasty meal in the restaurant of the city center. The participants relaxed and talked about the culture of their home countries, the landscape in Germany, their time at the Studienkolleg and their future plans.
The highlight followed in the afternoon: a game of bowling. It went down into a dark but neon-lit cellar, which provided some cooling off. Then the experienced bowling players, the “professionals”, showed the right technique to the inexperienced, the “freshman”. They learned from each other, cheered each other on and also competed a little bit against each other. The participants, who played bowling for the first time, not only had fun but also performed well.
At the end of the excursion the colleagues made plans for the next day: barbecue together in the park. Hopefully they can get back to a normal student life a bit during the week without lectures despite the restrictions and enjoy the hot summer time a little bit also.
