BERLIN

INTERNATIONAL
ORIENTATION

9. SEPTEMBER - 13. SEPTEMBER 2019

 
WELCOME TO BERLIN

Whether you have just arrived or have lived in Berlin longer but never “fully arrived” we want to welcome and get to know you! The goal of Berlin International Orientation (BIO) is to provide some direction for the city, for the university, and for life. We hope that you will make some friends, have some fun, and be better prepared for living in a new city and a new country.

Each evening there will be a chance to eat a warm meal, get to know new people, hear a short presentation on different topics (see schedule), practice German or English, get to know some Germans personally, play games, and more!

The theme for the week is “finding your way . . .” and we wish that we can walk with you for a part of your new journey here and hope that you can truly find your way through Berlin, German culture, the university, community, and to a good life!

 

WHO WE ARE

We are students, graduates, foreigners, Germans, strangers and friends, non-religious and religious people who want to welcome and help care for international students in Berlin. We are connected to

different organizations, student groups, and churches all with the goal to help students have a positive experience during their studies in Berlin.  SMD e.V., the main organizer, is a network of Christian student groups  interested in building relationships, and having conversations with people from diverse backgrounds and worldviews.  We are happy to get to know you personally and for you to get to know us!
