What is the Int.Ro
Department for Intercultural Exchange
of the Students' Council of FSU Jena
We are an international community centre and the official Department for Intercultural Exchange of the Students' Council of FSU Jena. On a voluntary basis, German and international students of Int.Ro are committed to bring together students from all over the world and to enhance intercultural understanding.
To do so, we organise various projects and events such as
- the Welcome Days at the beginning of every semester;
- the International Days in May/June with a concert, a campus breakfast, a sports day and many more;
- the Winter Lights with versatile events on and about winter celebrations;
- the weekly Sprachtreff Deutsch where talking in German is practised in a relaxed atmosphere;
- regular hiking tours, quiz nights, ...
Moreover, we can help you finding a tandem partner for language sharing, etc., inform about international Stammtische (regulars' tables), and we collect info about all kinds of events with an international character.
We are happy to help you.
Apart from this, Int.Ro is an umbrella organisation of currently 13 internationally oriented student groups working independently. Our aim is to foster communication between the groups, for instance by means of our monthly group meetings of all Int.Ro groups. In addition, our board members are also advisory members of the Students' Council where we advocate for the interests and needs of international students.
Our door is always open to you! If you have any questions, or if you would like to become committed to Int.Ro or one of our groups, just come around or send us an email. We are looking forward to your visit!
You can find our current meeting and office hours on our website.
