The Buddy Team organises all those VISUM events in which the exchange students can participate (ideally) with their German buddies, and we thus encourage the exchange between Mannheim students and students from all over the world. Apart from Buddy Events, such as a scavenger hunt, having a picnic by the Rhine riverside, playing paintball and many more, we make events happen that place special emphasis not only on interculturality in a strict sense, but on the joint preparation and consumption of culinary treats of the different nations. For the International Dinner, for example, everyone prepares a dish typical for their country of origin and thus a huge international buffet is created. The Running Dinner gives the buddy pairs a chance to demonstrate their cooking skills and get to know 12 other people during a three-course menu. Another of our popular events is Breakfast & Movie, for which we already meet in the morning for a delicious breakfast in a rented cinema and then watch a contemporary movie together. So if you are looking for international acquaintances, great teamwork and delicious food, you came to the right place!
